We have over 700 pictures of our trip we need to get through and organize. Don’t worry…I don’t intend on turning this into a “my vacation” blog. I did want to share a few pictures with you today so you know we REALLY were in Venice and Greece.
After we have more pictures ready to share I will add a page to my sidebar so you can take a look if you like.
Venice was as beautiful as it was twenty years ago when we were married there. The only thing that seemed to have changed is now there are a lot more people and boats!
Mykonos was our favorite stop on this trip. Steve and I were one of the few off the boat as soon as it docked at 7:00 am. We wandered through the quite alleys where there were no other tourist and the locals were just sweeping off the streets in front of their homes. It was so peaceful and beautiful it almost seemed unreal. The town is famous for it’s beautiful jewelry and I took some time to do some shopping.
I came home with an pretty blue enamel bracelet and earrings that remind me of the color of Mykonos.
We loved Santorini for the beautiful views and architecture. I braved the cable car to the top which was shaking and moaning the whole way. Here I bought some handmade Olive Oil soap for myself, a couple of trinkets for the giveaway and I discovered Cappuccino Freddo which is an iced coffee with a cold milk froth on top…delicious!
Now for the giveaway.
I hope you like the things I selected for you on our trip.
The giveaway includes a pretty pouch with silk flowers and a vintage square 32″ linen table scarf both from Venice. Also included is a bar of pure olive oil soap and a six strand necklace of natural coral, amethyst and turquoise from Santorini.
