Since we’d been to an island (Rhodes) during our honeymoon, we thought it would be fun to see an entirely different part of Greece. We decided on the region of Chalkidiki (sometimes spelled Halkidiki) on the mainland in Northern Greece. This area is well-known to German holidayers as “The Three Fingers”. One look at the map below and you’ll see why. (Funnily enough, this area is known as “The Three Feet” in Greece. Hmmm, still trying to figure that one out.)
Well that was a long absence! Since my last post about the Lange Nacht der Museen in Stuttgart, I’ve been to Canada, the US, Germany, Greece, and England. Phewf!
I flew to Canada in mid-March to prepare for our wedding later in April. It was so nice to be home to visit friends and family. Some highlights include:
-Visiting the Sunshine Coast with my mom and sister for a girls’ weekend
-Driving to Washington and Oregon with my pal Meghan
-Seeing a Vancouver Canucks game with my friend Lisa (we lost 3-0 but it was still fun to watch!) – thanks for the tickets, Gordon!
-Eating the most delicious Thai food at Maenam and Bob Likes Thai Food in Vancouver
-Jogging at Kitsilano Beach
-Marrying the best guy I know, S!
March and April were a bit of a blur; there was lots of running around, appointments to attend, airport pickups, and so on. Our wedding was such a beautiful day, despite the heavy rain that poured. I’m so happy we could celebrate with family and friends, especially those who came from afar to be with us. We had guests come in from Vernon, Calgary, Sidney, Toronto, Washington state, Washington, DC, and even Chile and Argentina! I’m so happy that S’s parents and 2 of his siblings could come to Vancouver to join in on the festivities.
A few days after getting hitched, we flew to Frankfurt and then left from Stuttgart airport at the crack of dawn the next morning for the Greek island of Rhodes for our honeymoon.
