Skordalia and Walnut Pesto

As clean white linens blow in the warm breeze behind me, I sit at this bar in the middle of an orange grove chatting with Ingrid.  She tells fascinating stories of her childhood and how she would come to Greece every summer from Germany by way of trains.  She tells of how she and Jorgos fell in love. She hands […]

Almond Cookies of Argos

Amygdolata… What?  The only way to describe these babies is by telling you another story.  It all began one hot afternoon in June, while exploring Argos in our trusty little rental car.

Nafplio, Greece -My Favorite City

How does one describe the city they would live in if given the chance?? We have been to some very cool places like Munich, Vienna, Salzburg…(all those are fabulous, by the way!)  I am completely a mountain girl who loves The Rockies, but Nafplion is just so enchanting.  During our Zesty Greek Travel Adventure, we were staying just up […]

Six Weeks in Tolo

 The Zesty Greek Travel Adventure continues…. The Peloponnese is a beautiful area of Greece that includes several different regions.  We left our itinerary open, only booking a couple nights at a time when we first arrived in Greece, because our ultimate goal was to locate a good base camp with affordable long term lodging opportunities where we could take day […]

Epidavros

Epidavros

Just a short drive from our Base Camp at Asini, is the Greek Village of Epidavros, which is also the location of The Ancient Theater of Epidavros.  Our day trip began with a lovely drive along a windy mountain road.

Oranges, Olives and White Linens

Do you ever feel like some things are just meant to be?  Sometimes, not having a plan can lead to the most wonderful and unexpected experience…  While exploring the area around Tolo, we came upon this hidden oasis set in the center of an orange plantation. Something about the sign just made us pull over and walk down this […]
