Have I ever said what a great little traveler Reya is ? :-). We have been globe trotting with her since she was a baby, and now she is a champ. It is getting better now since she will remember the trips we make and she also has an opinion on what the days should look like, what she would like to do and helps pack her travel bags too.
This was a fun trip for her since Rob and Darci joined us too, and she loves them dearly. Not to mention they are like grand parent figures to her! We spent 2 days in Athens, 5 days in Sifnos which was gorgeous and then 5 days in Santorini. Vasanth and I loved Sifnos the best since it is a very small island, with not that much tourism and the people are very warm and welcoming and friendly, like much of Europe. We stayed at Delphini which was run by a husband and wife team, George and Peppe. His famous lines to Reya would always be “hello special lady!” and she would just giggle and laugh!
Reya also learnt on the trip that “there are no churches in Greece!”…Rob would keep teasing her, she she would get really mad since she quickly learned that Greece was full of churches and they all had blue domes! Of course she has no clue what a church really is, since we have no concept of God in our house hold and she just think a church is a museum…this can stick till she is old enough and starts asking more questions…She was quiet a champ as always in the flights and all the transits, had her little treats and toys along with the IPAD for entertainment.
In Santorini, she made friends with a lady who worked at our hotel. Her name was Isabelle and she was from South Africa. Reya would get candy from her every morning! :-). Reya also for the first time had some “cat following”. Everyone knows how famous Greece is for it’s stray cats, and 2 of them followed Reya around in out hotel. She was fine at first, till the cats got onto my lap and then well…the jealousy began! Come on, jealous of a cat! I hope she will look back at this and realize how silly it was! : -)
Oh did I mention Tigger did this trip with us :-). he did get captured in some pictures!
