This place is everything you hope it will be.

Then there is the history and ancient architecture. Shut up and take my money Greece. (Pixabay)

    Numbers don’t lie. According to Virtuoso, these are the Top 10 Travel Destinations in the world. Have you been to any yet? I have five of these hotties stamped in my passport, but I spent far too little time in each.

    If I could, I’d go back to France (despite having been twice) and Spain…they feel, taste, and look so good to me. But, this time I’d have my little preciosos to share it with. Even better.

    Next on my list is Greece. It’s always been on my list, since I first listened to my dad’s Greek music tape in the van on the way to camping…somehow that sparked it for me. Plus, turquoise water, white plaster houses, and Athens, that’s just perfection.
