Its Ticking Down

The day is slowly approaching as the schedule date gets closer, 23rd July, seems far away but to me it’s not, 3 weeks in Greece, 3 weeks in the Sun, 2 weeks in Athens, 1 week on Naxos. It’s been too long since I was on Naxos, 2012 was the last time, but to see my friends on this beautiful island again will be GREAT. […]
