5 Connecticut Excursions to Help You Channel Spring Vibes

Okay, so here’s the thing. I’m done with winter. I mean really done this time.

It’s gotten to the point where I’ve started engaging in activities that are normally reserved for spring just so that I can remind myself that it will get warm again at some point.

Crazy as it may sound, I’ve actually discovered some really beautiful places in the process, right here in my little home state of Connecticut.

From Athens to Delphi, Greece’s Hidden Gem

Full disclosure: Athens wasn’t what I was expecting. There, I said it.

Frankly, it had been so completely hyped up that when I got there, I found myself asking: “This is it?”

In all fairness, I had just come down from the high of Santorini, admittedly a tough act to follow.

But just the same, it took a little more digging around to understand what the appeal of Athens was all about.

Confessions of a Non-Foodie in Greece

There’s nothing like traveling – especially to the Mediterranean – to remind you to slow down and enjoy eating.

For many, this will not be groundbreaking.

In fact, plenty of people already enjoy food on a daily basis, never feeling the need to go overseas for it.

That’s not to say that I went to Greece to learn to appreciate food – it wasn’t even on my radar.

From Sightseeing to Solitude: Where to Stay on Santorini

It’s not hard to see why thousands of tourists flock to Santorini each year. This famous Greek island is known for its charming, picturesque towns, breathtaking views, and stunning sunsets.

However, due to the island’s immense popularity, Santorini can become incredibly crowded, particularly in the high season (June – August). This can make booking accommodations difficult – especially if you want to avoid the throngs of tourists.
