Kalimera, Peeps!

That means “Good Morning” in Greek.  But this is going to be a marathon post so I have no idea what time of day it will eventually get published.

Oh man, Greece was superfunawesome! We visited Crete, Santorini, Mykonos and Athens.  In that order.  I sort of wish we had gone in reverse order, because we liked some places better than others and, no offense to Athens, I would have preferred to spend the last night of my honeymoon chillin on a beach with a drink, instead of trucking down busy city streets just like the ones we have here in Philly.

Anywhoooo, I have 2 million pictures so I will just give you some highlights. In the interest of full disclosure, I will also tell you that I gained 5 pounds on my honeymoon. I ate like a king and drank like a sorority chick. All while sporting a bikini. And it was glorious!

First up, the food (highlights):

P6150087 Two HUGE boots of Mythos, gyro with steak fries and tsatziki (they do them kind of deconstructed instead of all wrapped up), garlic dip (has a potatoe base), greek salad (no lettuce! and a whole brick of feta!)

P6150091

Grilled mushrooms and (the best) moussaka

P6180187

Lunch on the balcony in Santorini. Greek salad, roast beef on whole wheat baguette with mango chutney. And steak fries! They put oregano on their salads and fries and it is DELISH!

P6180199

Fried cheese wrapped in phyllo dough, with pistachios and honey. You can’t go wrong with fried cheese. Ever.

Andrew’s fresh fish before.  The waiter wanted to de-bone it for him but he insisted her do it himself.

P6180205

Andrew’s fish after. The waiter was seriously impressed.

This is a bad picture but the waitress described the special as “pasta with lobster.” 58 euro later….

That food looks delicious.

I ate somewhere today. It was not nearly as delicious, I bet.

But I found out something profound about goldfish.
