Upon my return from Greece, the first question Hubs asked was "how was the food?". I named our favourite Greek restaurant in Ottawa and said that the food in Greece was 10 times better. His mouth remained open for a few seconds. 

To say that I like food would be an understatement. I love to eat. I love to talk about food. I enjoy cooking...sometimes...

I love food tours. You get to learn all about food and the history behind certain dishes. While participating in a food tour in Athens, I've learned about the not so violent battle between 3 countries (Greece, Turkey and Cyprus) about who invented the baklava.

When booking your flight, choosing the right dates and picking the right city are very basic things one should do. Right? … Wrong! We’re humans, and, sometimes, we mess up. Like that guy who landed in Sydney, Nova Scotia (Canada) instead of Sydney, Australia.

And now, you can add me to the long list of travellers who’ve done a dumb rookie mistake...
