Continuing on Jenny and Smiley’s Excellent Adventure…
Smiley and I are not the ‘touristy, tour guide following, type of travelers’. We like to look off the top 10 best things to do lists and experience places as they are, off the beaten path.
This is not to say we don’t have a plan, or idea of things we want to see. We wander off the beaten path and see more of places mostly because I have no sense of direction.
We travel by plane, train, rental cars, and of course by foot. We did a lot of ‘hoofing it’ on our excellent adventure. I tried to use some great apps like ‘Rome to Rio’ and of course ‘Google Map’ to help us navigate our way around and I learned a tone of secrets in using these apps, but sometimes we just had to old school it with learning to read schedules and maps. (I would love to see a GPS tracking our travels. I bet it would be in circles!)
To get a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city of Paris and the fact that we are both big time mountain people being ski/snow sports instructors, we took a side trip to Mount Blanc! No plan, no agenda, just a side trip getaway!
With no plans, and they weren’t skiing yet, we just got out in the rain and wandered around. On ‘Google Map’ it looked much flatter! But it was great training for our wandering around in Crete!
So we are off to Greece! As always…
