La Sagrada Família: Work of a Genius or a Madman?

“Genius or madman? Only time will tell.”

According to our tour guide, this was the response architect Antoni Gaudí received after expressing his initial plans for La Sagrada Família.

Personally, I’ve never subscribed to the restrictive “black or white” outlook on life and have always loathed the glass half empty or full debate. I tend to live my life in the large, gray expanse in between, where I believe most everything ultimately lies.

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.
