Travels in Greece

photo friday: santorini buses

Santorini, while small, is too big to get around on foot, so we learned quickly how to use the buses. From what we could tell, all routes ran through the main town, Thira. To get from one city to another, the general route was to take a bus to Thira and then a second bus to the destination. The timetables were a bit confusing – the one I was handed didn’t match that at the […]

local isn’t all that great

For me, at least. Yes, I love connecting with my neighbors. Volunteering locally. Being a pedestrian. Buying locally. But I get lost when I am local. Backwards right? I don’t get lost in a physical sense; I’ve lived in the county for 16 years. I generally have a good sense of where I’m headed — except on Monday as I headed to get Phelix from boarding, I was SO distracted by the CLEAR CUTTING (ACK) […]

things i like: plak that

Slowly, slowly, I have been working to outift and decorate our condo. Alas, even as I “finish” each room, I see things that I want to change. But I’m limiting myself to a room every couple of months in order to not overwhelm myself nor our budget. Overall, I’m quite happy with how far it has come since we moved in 1.5 years ago (or, well, 3 years ago if you discount our move down […]

traveling: prepping to leave

If you know me, you know that I love to hit the road. There were months when the kids were young that we would be gone more days than we were at home. Some months, we’d be home only a handful of days. Fast-forward to now, and it seems I can rarely get away. Now that they are in school and have their own activities, I too have started to have more activities based at […]

photo friday: bikes in amsterdam

What do you think of when you think of Amsterdam? For me, the second thing after canals is bikes. Bikes, bikes, bikes. And after our short visit, my girls now think the same. “Look at all the bikes…just like Amsterdam!” (in reference to bike commuting in DC which, while, growing does not rival Amsterdam).
