I now forget what kind of tree this is but it was pretty awesome and Katie and I got inside -ok just me because Katie was afraid there'd be spiders- and our hiking guide, Jim/Dimitrios, snapped a few pics. #vacation #greece #hike #hiking #tree #nature

Our last full day in Greece began with a long hike (think it was 5 hrs) to Meteora. We were greeted with sun, a crisp blue sky, and cool air. If you know me well you know I'm not much of an outdoors person nor am I too active, but this experience was amazing and one I truly enjoyed. The hike was a bit more challenging than we had anticipated, but it was a pleasant challenge, to tell the truth. It's probably a good thing we didn't start this trip with the hike! All of the walking in Athens and towns and crazy steps of Oia prepared and toned me up enough so this hike was pretty fun (except the time I fell and bruised my knee, haha). #hike #hiking #vacation #greece #Meteora #thegreatoutdoors #nature

We enjoyed this 'second dinner' comfortably from our twin beds in our hotel and it was even before 9:00 ok I believe. I love how a few days prior we were basking in the sun and ocean air atop a catamaran while enjoying the open bar and homemade buffet...and then totally chilling and being lowkey in Kalampaka. 👏🏼👍🏼😁 #vacation #gyro #greece #nomnom #seconddinner #itsthelittlethings

Let me set this up: We had finished a tasty and filling meal a while before and followed it up with walking along the main drag, weaving in and out of shops. We started noticing these 'fast food' shops (their signs said that in English) and as we walked by this one, our eyes nearly popped out of our heads when we saw the lady shaving meat off the huge thing. I'm guessing it's gyro meat (yes, @stasia_maier ?). We literally stopped in our tracks at the same time and stood there watching the meat. We debated 'Should we? But we just ate...' Then the lady saw us and kind of laughed, as I'm sure we looked funny drooling and staring. So of course we went in and got food to go! The one employee taking our order didn't understand us at all, not even with me pointing to the meal deal displays lol. Fortunately for us a nice guy translated for us, helping us to experience some quality 'fast food' in this charming town where everybody knows your name. Unless you're not Greek. 😜 #smalltown #vacation #greece #nomnom #meat #happy #dinner

I could not believe how many spices (many I'd never heard of) were packed in this tiny shop (and at crazy low prices). The owner Aldo had coffee, liquor, and tasty treats that we eagerly sampled. When I went to Lunds yesterday in dt Minneapolis I took a close look at their offerings. Wow, just wow. #vacation #greece #authenticity #spices #shopping

Hands down one of my favorite Greek foods...pretty sure it's baked feta, not fried. With honey and sesame seeds. We had this several times throughout the trip and this was the best, and probably at the most modest and inexpensive place in the adorable town of Kalampaka. Our experience at this place felt more authentic because our server (a grandpa type) didn't speak much English at all. #vacation #greece #bakedfeta #nomnom #nofilter

This guy, I think his name is Magdelin (or very close to it) and he's an employee of Residence Suites, where we stayed. He carried our suitcases DOWN and UP the steep steps with ease. Somehow he even managed to hoist Katie's full-size suitcase onto one shoulder without collapsing. He jokingly asked her what did she have in there? 😂 #vacation #customerservice #greece #oia

I also took a very slowww dip in the mini 'pool'. It was like a cold jacuzzi. Maybe they have that set up that way because it gets crazy hot in the summer and it's an easy solution to cool off quickly? #vacation #greece #oia #pool #sunbathıng
