Cambridge Day Trip: Waddesdon Manor

Perhaps I’ve watched too much Downton Abbey — but lately, I’ve found myself wanting to experience England in a more traditional sense.

Crete: Seitan Limania

If you are dreaming of the bluest water and the most unusual beaches, then look no further. Crete is the place for you! As we flew south from Santorini, the first thing we noticed were patches of stunning, turquoise sea surrounding the island of Crete. One of my all-time favorite beaches was Seitan Limania (aka Stephanou Beach).… Keep Reading
