  • Blue-and-white buildings like these are instantly recognizable as being Greek. This look is much more common in the Cycladic islands than other parts of Greece. Some believe the use of blue is related to the superstition that blue wards off evil. Another possible explanation for this color scheme is that it was ordered by Ioannis Metaxas, former military general and dictator. In the 1930s, he forced the painters to use lime, a local product with anti-bacterial properties, to whitewash the buildings, with the hope that doing so would combat epidemics that were rampant in the islands. The use of lime had the additional benefit of providing insulation from the sun, which helps to keep the interiors of the buildings cool. If you need help planning a visit to Greece, I'm your go-to -  so please call or email when you are ready to plan! #greekislands  #visitgreekislands #greece  #travelgreekislands #visitgreece #vacationplanning #colorsofgreece #greekarchitecture #shadesofblue #instagreece #tastefulvoyages

  • This is my most reposted photograph and I guess I should share the story behind it. First thing we did when we got off the ferry was drive right to Navagio lookout. Anyone that knows me knows I'm scared of heights, the drive wasn't really near the cliffs but it still freaked me out so I just focused on the road ahead of me without looking out my side windows.

We get there and I'm like, "This is it? Where's the shipwreck?" I didn't wanna go near the cliffs to orient myself so I told my gf I was gonna start walking and she waited in the car. I start walking and find out i was walking the wrong way, my gf comes down the path after a while and she thought i fell or something cause it took me so long. We get back to the car and I put my drone up to figure out where we were. This was the 8th time I've ever flown my drone and I still get vertigo looking through my phone screen at what my drone sees. I was freaking out since I didn't have a lot of experience yet. The drone starts giving me high wind warnings and I thought to myself, "This must be it. This is how I lose my drone." Luckily I took some snaps and got it back safely.

It's a shame a lot of countries are strict on drones now a days. Most trips I just leave it at home and it's turned into a paper weight. Anyways, feel free to give me a follow to see some more of my travel photos.
