A Greece Holiday in the North Aegean

After 20 miserable years of marriage, my husband and I have, at long last, called it quits. Well actually, he called it quits, but if he hadn’t –I would have. My attorney beat up his attorney in court, so to celebrate; I’ve decided to take myself on a well-deserved and luxurious holiday in Greece. My ex was too cheap to take me anywhere, so now I plan to make up for his lack of imagination and motivation by treating myself!If I don’t, who will?

I went online and looked up the Greece holiday travel experts whom everyone is raving about. I wasn’t quite sure what part of Greece I wanted to explore, and the online travel geniuses were more than happy to help me decide. They assisted in planning my itinerary based on my interests, time frame and budget.  Before too long, we decided that the perfect Greece Holiday for me was a vacation in the Northern Aegean islands of Greece! Twelve days of sightseeing and touring Athens, Samos, Chios, and Lesvos (also known as Lesbos and Mytilene), will be perfectly sublime, and just what I need.

The online travel agents made all the arrangements, so I didn’t have to lift a finger. My airline tickets, transfers, limousine service, car rental, hotel reservations, ferries and tickets to everything I’d ever want to see on my Greece holiday were taken care of by the friendly and professional travel guys. My only responsibility was arriving at the airport on time! No wonder everyone I know uses these online experts.

Well, let me tell you: I had the most marvelous time on my Greece holiday. The second night I witnessed the most spectacular sunset over the Aegean Sea while touring the Temple of Poseidon in Athens. On the island of Chios, I found the Byzantine Museum and the Philip Argenti Gallery to be simply fabulous.

The most unusual experience of my Greece Holiday occurred at the monastery in the midpoint of Chios. As a reminder of a late 1800’s massacre, and among a charming area of buildings, were the skulls of martyred monks—displayed for all to see.

The island of Lesvos was and absolute paradise; the way one might picture the Garden of Eden.

To the fantastic travel gods of Greece Holidays, I say, “Sas ef̱charistó̱ pára polý !”
