'I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out 'til sundown, for going out, I found was really going in.' John Muir

I've seen the top of Everest (from a long way off), smelled the breath of a whale (from way too close) and lived on a boat in Greece (for a few years), but I continue to experience some of my most precious moments right outside my backdoor.

Greece, wonderful Greece.... (more from our slow campervan trip)

Greece is –  

Poppies so vibrant they seem to crackle and buzz like an electricity sub station.

Sea, blue and wavy as the Greek flag outside a sleepy taverna .
Ice cold retsina wine that makes your mouth shrivel and purse like a sea anemone when the tide has gone out.
Wild flowers that dip and sway in the breeze like dancers  at a Greek wedding.
Finding secret mountain churches with faded blue and gold frescos, and a peace like nothing on earth.
Sunsets the colour of the amber honey sold at the roadside.
Oranges so fresh and sweet it’s like sucking the juice from the sun.
