Kayaking with Dolphins

Our day began around 8 in the morning. We would soon find out how good our kayaking skills are. It was me, my niece Ahna, two British gals, and our tour guide on a half a day trip. Our truck ride there was bumpy and long, but we made it. Butterflies began in my stomach... Continue Reading →

Take a Step at a Time

Beloi Viewpoint in Greece

As we progressed up the mountain in our rental car, the weather drastically changed. It was just raining, but the higher we got, it turned into snow. The winds tempo became erratic and harder. Fog had descended onto us and snow was coming down in spurts. My gut feeling said, "Don't do it!" Suddenly, we... Continue Reading →

Burrowed Truth

The sound of water crashing against rocks woke me. I sat up quickly, drenched in water. I realized I was on a beach, but where. The sun's rays beat down on me, while I try to grasp what had happened. I touched my back. I fill with relief, my sword is still there. My head... Continue Reading →
