Swollen Feet in Santorini

After “Stuck in Mykonos,” our second destination for Spring break was Santorini, Greece. We docked about fourteen hours after we had originally planned and wobbled off the ferry, our sea-sick stomachs thankful to be on land.

There are many historical sites to see in England, so I bought a ticket to visit my first one, Stonehenge. There are many accessible and affordable day trips offered to ...
