Throughout our travels we made some stops at places – basically a night out, a drive through or a few days stay while we were waiting to fly home. These come to mind as I reflect back to our journey throughout Greece. The best part of being there were the family members we visited with and sharing the experience.
Exploring the path to retirement...finding our way
to a new way of living with purpose, meaning and joy.

After an overnight ferry ride back from Crete, we drove about an hour and a half north of Athens to the island of Evia. We settled in our hotel outside of Eretria and planned our excursions. This included plenty of down time relaxing around the pool and on the beach as well as hitting up other popular towns, Kavala and Thassos.
For a complete change of pace from the beautiful Aegean isles, we ferried back to the port of Pireaus, just outside Athens and drove several hours north to Livadia – our second trip there. Entering the city at 10:00pm was quiet and welcoming; happily, next door was a little taverna for our late dinner as we envisioned our trip around Livadia, Arahova, and Galaxidi, Greece.
As you all probably know from reading my blog, our first dream was to spend a length of time in Greece. Well, our second dream was to visit Tuscany. I’ve been in love with all things Italian – see my blog: www.retirementexplored.com/stories/all-things-italian since I was a little girl; I’ve been to Italy three times before but never explored the famous vineyards of Tuscany. So off we went for a twelve day tour.
