Honoring Mom

This week is very important for me. Not only its my mom’s birthday today, but this upcoming Sunday is Mother’s Day.  That’s why I decided to honor my mom with this thank you letter: Three years ago my mom and I made a pact: Every year we will take a mother-daughter only trip. The tradition started in 2014, and since then we make sure to take our yearly trip. Traveling with my mom is the best. She is by far the best travel partner someone could ever have. The first time we visited Australia and New Zealand. The following year we felt more adventurous and traveled to Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. Last year we opter for something more relaxing so we decided to visit Greece. Here’s why my Mom the best travel buddy: 1. Because she makes sure every picture she takes of me  is just the way I wanted it to be. 2. Because she always makes sure we do all the activities I want to do. (even if she’s not included.) 3. Because …

Riding a Donkey in Santorini

What a hilarious experience! It’s going to get good. Here’s my story:   I always heard that Santorini had the option of riding a donkey like local greeks did back in the day. You know before motorcycles and other motorized vehicles took over the world? Anyways, I never actually considered it but once I was there I said: “Oh what the hell! Let’s just go.”   I was convinced it was going to be a fun experience, so riding a donkey it is! We asked for directions and the souvenir store lady told us: “Keep walking ahead, you’ll start to smell them!”   Smell them? I didn’t understand at first. “Thank you so much!” I replied. We kept walking and out of the sudden we start to smell this disgusting (yet so weird) smell. “Omg please don’t tell me that’s how the Donkey’s smell?” I thought.   Of course they smelled disgusting. There are at least 60 donkeys just waiting in line eating and pooping everywhere… It was funny! “Let’s just do it. We are …
