I work for a regional government agency in Colorado and also study European history and French language in university. My first trip to Greece was in 2004 when I visited my daughter who was doing a semester abroad (turned into 1 year) on Paros and felt such peace. I've been back twice and can't imagine going anywhere in Europe if it didn't end with a trip to Greece.
Greece is what sparked my interest in European history and desire to go back to school.
I enjoy photography but since I'm married to a professional photographer I don't take as many pictures as I would like.
I love to travel and will be going to France (Paris and a self guided driving tour through Provence). We're hoping to finish it off with a trip to Paros but can't imagine August in Greece with the heat and crowds. I need someone to tell me its not so bad.
