If we cannot really travel…

… then at least we can let our tastebuds travel!
As those who follow this blog might know, our girl has the chickenpocks; so our minitrip had to be cancelled. We decided to travel no matter what – so we are going to travel foodwise this week.

Today, we started by going to Greece.
