My Big Fat Greek Vacation: Intro

A dream in blue and white.

It’s late evening on a small island in the Aegean Sea. I am stretched out on a sun bed watching the sky change from blue to gold to orange. Sunset is the enchanted hour here. It’s the time when the water becomes still, like glass, and the white washed houses take on the color of gold as the air turns cool and crisp, giving some relief from the dry heat of the day. A shimmer of sunlight dances on the water, and I can hear the waves rolling the smooth pebbles so that they tinkle like bells just below my feet. Matt is smiling as he walks toward me with two cocktails so that we can soak up the last light of the day together.

We have captured something elusive here…. an essence, a feeling, that bit of magic that we look for as we travel that makes a place a part of our soul.

We are in Greece, and it has stolen us.
