And it’s smokin’ hot! wlEmoticon sun   Honeymoon Photography: Athens, Greece & Giveaway!

It reached a high of 38 degrees Celsius the day we were there. Eric and I were sweating buckets while climbing the Acropolis and Filopappos hill. We finally reached the top of the Acropolis and discovered there was no water to be found, just a lot of thirsty tourists! If you ever find yourself climbing this, bring more than 1 bottle of water… ;)

There are about 150,000 stray dogs living on the streets in Athens. I wanted to take all of them home…

After our climbs, we headed to the Plaka shopping area where there are a lot of tourist/market type shops and high end shopping too.

Loving this new travel photo theme! The summer is coming to an end here and the photos are helping me stay on summer mode until at least the end of August. :)

Beautiful photos. I felt the same way about the stray cats in Spain as you felt about the dogs. Somehow, I don’t think the cats waiting for me in Canada would have been too happy about that type of travel souvenir.

I studied abroad three years ago when I was in college. Looking through your pictures takes me back to those days, especially Venice! I lived in Florence for two months and every weekend my friends and I traveled to another country or area in Italy. I can’t wait to go back with the man I love, whenever I meet him :) Your photos are gorgeous!

I have just begun to LOVE tea. I am usually a coffee drinker, but have found tea to be great for weight loss and maintenance – wonderful flavor, treating yourself, no calories! What’s not to love!

How beautiful! I loved visiting the Mediterranean :) The tea sounds fantastic too, I’ve been trying really hard to cut down on my coffee consumption and it’s been difficult, but I heard that having a variety of teas around helps keep people that are switching from slipping up!
