First of all, a big Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband Will! I cannot believe it has been a years since we got married! Boy does time fly.

After visiting Mykonos we headed off to our next island, Paros! We arrived via high-speed catamaran! The boat tossed around quite a bit, but was only a short 45 minutes. Paros is a port island with lots of people coming and going. So much so that it is commonly referred to as “the place you stop on the way to somewhere else”. Within a few hours of our arrival we were mobile! We got out...
