Visiting this popular Greek island during the height of summer, I was not expecting to have the white stone streets and Aegean beaches all to myself. However, I also wasn’t expecting to see Little Venice on the verge of sinking beneath the swarm of tourists that surged from every street. Thank the Greek Gods for the Suzuki Jeep we rented, which allowed us to escape the crowds and explore the island’s hidden gems.
I can’t believe two months have already gone by since I left for the trip of a lifetime. For a number of reasons, the memories I made in Sri Lanka will stay with me for the rest of my life, floating like a dream in the most far-flung corners of my mind.
