Till next time Greece!

It literally feels like it was just yesterday that I was sitting on my couch trying to find tickets to come to Greece with my family. And it feels like it was just yesterday that we landed in Santorini, and as if it was just yesterday that we came to Athens and we told ourselves we have 10 days to enjoy everyones company over here. Now, I have just checked-in online for our flight tomorrow to go back home, packed my suitcase, and picked out my clothes for the flight.

We had an amazing time here, 3 full weeks in Greece with my family while visiting the rest of our family was an adventure! We have driven all over the place, visited many houses, ate too much food, met family we have never met before, and developed some new solid relationships with our family out here. Sometimes you forget how many family members you really have especially if they are in another country. I can’t wait to come back and visit and for all of them to come see us.

Tomorrow we will be coming back home and luckily we have a direct flight to NY! From what I see online, the flight has about 6 totally empty rows in front of my row so I am already planning to take one of those rows for myself! And I will sit there as soon as we board so that other people don’t try to steal it lol. If someone has booked those seats last minute and makes me move, I will be pretty embarrassed.

I thought it would be funny to collect all the photos that went wrong or were unexpected because people never see those meanwhile those seem to be the best and funniest!
