“…There is the heat of Love, the pulsing rush of Longing, the lover’s whisper, irresistible—magic to make the sanest man go mad.”
We traveled by train from Sophia, Bulgaria to Thessaloniki, Greece for a couple days and then on to Athens and Mykonos. Thessaloniki had a surprisingly wonderful small town feel and a thriving cafe culture. We spent a day just cafe/bar hopping and walking by the waterfront.
Athens will always be my heart place. When I think of where I would most like to be in the world it is always Athens. She is everything sensual to me; lusty energy, sultry heat, spicy air and people that touch your spirit.
Then there is Mykonos, the only Greek Island I have managed to make it to and twice even! Both times there were no boats going down to Santorini but I still prefer to visit off-season regardless. Most of the businesses were closed up for the Winter and the town was just beginning to paint and prepare for the coming tourists. The atmosphere had a buzz about it and we wandered the white walkways alone, it was glorious.
