The Itinerary:

I am in Mykonos for three days.  Then we head to Naxos for three nights.  After that we go to Santorini for 2 nights and finish off in the City of Athens!  It took me 4 flights to get here… FOUR!  I was up for over 30 hours straight but totally worth it.  We are ferrying from island to island and then flying on Ryan Air from Santorini to Athens for the last leg of the trip.

I am so happy to be on this trip!  My Best friend (my hide the body friend) Jennifer from this post, has been in Europe since September 14th working and traveling.  Within the past year, Jennifer decided to quit her corporate career in HR & healthcare to follow her passion of travel around the world… and make money off it!  I have talked about her business before but I could not be more proud of her and her steadfast belief in herself… and that she can live her dreams.  I could not let her go on this trip alone!  SO here I am… in Greece Looking at the Aegean Sea from our private hot tub in our hotel room… I am such a generous and selfless friend – I know.  We are going to spend next week doing some guest blogging for one another and promoting one another’s stuff!  Please check it out!

img_4296Lastly!  I am sitting here writing this with JJS and we are arguing about wether or not this is normal to fly half way across the globe to support your friend.  I think it is… but maybe it is not.  I don’t know… and I don’t care!  Here is my new mantra:  “We were not made for ordinary.”  I don’t want a NORMAL life.  I want a crazy life where I am traveling like a mad person, dropping everything to love my friends and my family.  I want to spend every penny of my soul.  I never want to say coulda woulda shoulda… I want to die empty.  (check out this video).img_4291
