- There are no words to describe the experience we had at this beautiful secluded villa in k y t h n o s | 🇬🇷 #nofilterneeded
- Athens 2016
One of my favorite memories. It had to be 110 degrees that day and here I am , hot, drenched from sweat and so swollen, the sandals on my feet were the only ones I could find to fit that day.
I waited for awhile in the heat so I could watch the changing of the guards. And if you ever get to Athens, you NEED to see it. What a beautiful ceremony.
When I found out you could have your picture taken with them, of course i waited for my turn.
The look on my face says it all. I wanted to stand there for as long as possible admiring this man.
Who, in full “costume”, had to stand completely still for an hour.
In the heat 110 degree heat.
He couldn’t move. He couldn’t wipe the sweat that was dripping off his face , or shift his feet. Or scratch an itch.
He relied on another soldier to come and take care of wiping his face, and making sure he was ok.
For an hour he stood. Stoic. Still.
When I am having a hard day... I think of this man ,this day and it makes me believe I CAN achieve anything I set my mind to .
- Yep just that easily amused

- when i tell people i’m going to greece, they immediately think of santorini or mykonos. but the greece i get to go to is where my friends from @kasandrinos produce their olive oil (it’s the best, link in profile!) located in the laconia region (of ancient sparta) in the southeastern part of the peloponnese peninsula.
although this year will definitely still be filled with lots beach days and beach hopping (don’t you worry!), we’re adding in some epic hikes including the summit of mount taygetus and the one i mentioned on stories yday, which is from @tonykasandrinos’ village of níata walking all the way to monastery elonas up in the mountains. 29 effing miles to be exact!!! who even do i think i am honestly?! i’ve got exactly six weeks to train my ass off so i don’t die of exhaustion during the hikes! (these are some pics from last year of visiting the monastery plus the map of our epic hike!) #visitgreece #lakonia #kevoo #greece #kosmas
- Sun bathing in Mykonos ☀️ had the most relaxing day & ended the night by sailing across the ocean to watch the sunset. This was a much needed vacation ❤️
