We were in Arachova on a business trip off-season, so we missed some of the delights of a first-class hotel--breakfast (which was sumptuous) was delivered to my terrace view as there were no other guests. The town was a close walk and interesting. The hotel must be fabulous during ski season.

... during the meal we were harassed by a solo flyer, which swiftly became a duo, trio, quartet, then a whole bloody band of flying bugs! Our host told us not to worry about the 'bees', but I know a European wasp when I sees one. In the end we moved tables twice trying to escape them as they were incessantly coming after Leanne's meal - who knew wasps had a taste for rooster-flesh? They were very apologetic, which was sweet considering it was 100% our fault and nothing ...
... as a liaison with the House of Representatives and Rebecca is a dentist in Virginia Beach. High school sweethearts from Martinsburg, WV (an area where some of my kinfolk left to move to KY in 1799), they were a delightful young couple. We enjoyed dinner with our three new friends at a local taverna. Great conversation and a few glasses of wine.
All in, Meteora is a place to ...
