Day 175/366: Swimming fools Yet another day spent at the beach/hotel. The girls spent all day in the water. From early morning to late in the evening. They are such fishes! I swam a lot as well, too hot to just lay out tanning.

Olive heaven We ate a ridiculous amount of Olives, especially Emma - that and feta cheese are some of her favorite food, so she was pretty much in heaven the whole time we were here

Day 174/366: Sara in Napflio Today we took the bus into the nearest bigger city, Napflio. It was the first capital of modern Greece, from the start of the Greek Revolution in 1821 until 1834. Nafplio is now the capital of the regional unit of Argolis. It is a beautiful city full of Venetian architecture.

Mythos beer

I love Mythos beer. It is bitter and strong in taste, and I drank several bottles every day :) 
 
This was a super relaxing day just hanging at the beach, which was situated one step down from our veranda at the hotel where we stayed.

Lots of seafood obviously in a fishing village

Day 172/366: Taking in the Mediterranean Sea

Day 172/366: Taking in the Mediterranean Sea

After a loooong day of travel that started at 4 am in the morning, the girls finally got to dip their feet into the Mediterranean sea. They were so happy! And looking forward to endless days of swimming. We were staying in Tolo, a small fishing village in Asini at the southern end of Peloponnese. It is a quiet, small, sleepy village where I have been a few times before, and my parents many times before... so a lot of the people running businesses there knows us. 
 
It is soooo hard picking out photos from this trip to put into my 366 project, as there are many, many photos that tells so much about what we were doing, where we were going and what we were seeing and experiencing there. 
 
This depicts so very well that first day of vacation to me, though...
 
It was a gorgeous first evening
