SS Blog Challenge #20 - One Week Anywhere...

This challenge is presented by my friend Brynn. She actually gave a two-part challenge and allowed us to choose one or do both. I am going to choose the fun one for now, because it actually lets me dream a little and "get away".

If you were able to go on a vacation for 1 week, anywhere you wanted, & with anyone you choose, where would you go, who would you take & why would you choose that location.

The answer to this is easy! First, I would take my best friend - my husband! I would go back to Greece. I had the privilege of going to Greece when I lived in Germany. I was only in high school at the time, but went with some co-workers that were originally from Mykonos and Crete. I was there for one week and it is the most beautiful place I've ever been to - and I've done a lot of traveling in my time. =]

Marco and I desperately need to get away and spend some time just for us. This would be the perfect place because there is no rushing around to be anywhere when you are on Mykonos Island. I imagine that, by now, it is over-crowded with tourists - but I am sure that it is still just as beautiful. The Mediterranean atmosphere, food, and pace of life is just what we would need. I think it would be a respite for our souls. The ocean, the colors of the buildings, the outdoor coffee shops...getting away from it all - I can almost smell the sea if I just close my eyes...*sigh*

I love Greece. The isle of Hydra is nice as well, the last time I was there, (20 years ago!), cars weren't allowed on the island - made it nice and peaceful.
