Greece for three

acropolis-of-athens-home

This was the year to take my granddaughter, Ella, on an adventure of her choosing.  She choose Greece.  I was delighted. Some 40 years ago, it was the first country outside America that I ever visited.  My husband had received a little extra money for some project and we decided to take a trip abroad.  Since he had traveled widely in Europe when he was in the Army, he said I could choose.  I wanted to go where I definitely didn’t know the language, and I had also read about the special quality of the light in Greece.  So off we went for 3 weeks with the grandparents looking after the children.  Greece has remained at the top of my list ever since.  I love the people, the landscape, the history, and the food (especially the Kalamata olives and the feta).

So during Ella’s spring break, we hopped on the plane and took off, with one addition: my daughter Tracy.  We planned to rent a car for part of the time and, having read about some of the roads in Greece, we could use a driver.  Tracy was well acquainted with windy roads from maneuvering the Catskills in New York State where she and Barry have a weekend retreat.

And of course, she would be great company.  Not only that, but she is a wonderful writer and, on return, captured a special part of our trip in her own blog, Squeaky Feet, named for its usual focus on the happenings in the world of squash–her primary sport.

So, with no more ado, I will provide a link to her blog, just click the following:  What do Greek olives taste like? Revelations in the Peloponnese.  And enjoy.
