A Brief and Grecian Sojourn in Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki Greece

From Italy we flew to Thessaloniki Greece to meet the woman who was making my wedding dress. I had found someone online who lives in Thessaloniki and makes wedding dresses to sell internationally.  In between fittings we visited amazing wineries and the caves that boast the oldest human remains in Europe.

Unfortunately our camera broke in the middle of our six day Grecian visit, but I promise you – it was very, very pretty. Also greek salads in Greece are are much more complicated (and amazing) than they are anywhere else in the world.

After our brief visit in Thessaloniki we returned to Italy to catch our flight to the U.S. with one more piece of incredibly large luggage. I think I may be the only backpacker in the world traveling from town to town with a wedding dress in tow!


I think of California as officially "home" but can usually be found a lot closer to the equatorial belt. After finishing a Masters program in 2011 I found myself trying to decide between a couple of different high-powered career options. I decided I wasn't quite ready to "grow up" and went with an entirely different plan which involved selling off everything I owned with my partner Tom and buying a one-way ticket to Colombia. Our plan was to travel "Till The Money Ran Out" and then go home to start our grown-up lives. Instead, we started our own app development company on the road and have been criss-crossing the globe, traveling, working, eating spicy food and refusing to "grow up" ever since.
