From January 1978 until October 1984, with only the winter of 1980-81 spent in California, we enjoyed the quiet lifestyle of Athens, Greece. Living amongst all the classic beauty and history of this old country allowed us to explore life like never before. We explored the ancient sites of Sunion, Meteora and Delphi numerous times. And our island hopping took us to Mykonos, Santorini, Crete, and Hydra as well as numerous smaller islands. In the winter we even got to cool off on the snow covered mountains. Even historic Greece has wild fires but, with a sea full of water they use powerful waterbombers to fight the fires. And of course, no look at Greece would be complete without the backside of Greece.
