Back last September, K and I made a trip to Greece.
We both think Greece is the most beautiful place in the world (and we’re both a little biased).
Backstory: K was born and raised in Athens, Greece. It’s where he intended to spend the rest of his life. That is, until he ran into me during my Study Abroad program in 2010…and both of our paths were completely rewritten.
K’s seen a lot of Greece, of course. And I’ve seen a pretty good little hunk of it.
But both of us were blown away by our visit to Monemvasia.

So it’s sort of ironic (or maybe not) that I can’t drink alcohol at all now due to my ongoing health issues. But I still like to have something fun to sip on when I’m hanging out with friends. Continue reading
