What can I say about Santorini other than it was breathtaking? On official maps its name is Thira, although nobody seems to call it that. It was called Calliste, most beautiful, in ancient times. To get there our cruise ship Celestyal Olympia actually saile...

We cruised to Patmos and had an unadvertised stop on Samos. Wine-tasting, anyone?
One nice thing about EF Tours is the ease with which it rearranges or reschedules in light of world events and U.S. State Department recommendations. We were originally scheduled to stop in Kusadasi in Turkey to visit Ephesus...

Check out our tour of the Greek island of Mykonos.
After passing through customs, we boarded the cruise ship Celestyal Olympia, bound for some Aegean islands. Joanna, our EF Tour Director, warned us to avoid drinking the water on the ship except what was offered at meals. She...

We visited seashores, temples, and mountaintops during our recent trip to #Greece. Spectacular views!
We spent most of the day on a bus between Delphi and Athens. On our way down Mt. Parnassus, where Delphi is located, we stopped at a ski resort, the one closest to Athens, for a summertime photo-stop. View of Mt. Parnassus in...

My family and I volunteered there on Christmas Eve. This is a wonderful church that does a lot of community outreach. If you are looking for a church family, check it out! We loved it and you will, too.

I had an off-and-on sensation of numbness in my left shoulder. This occurred most often when I looked down or lifted something up. My regular practitioner told me it was most likely nerve damage. She predicted it would get worse as I age. There was nothing I could do about it, she said, except take over-the-counter pain medications. As I aged it would probably get worse, so I might eventually have to switch to stronger (prescription) medications. I was not happy with this prognosis and decided to try chiropractic with Dr. Block and Dr. Donner. After a few weeks I noticed I was suffering from the numb sensation less often, and that I could lift things up without the shoulder troubling me. Now, after a few months of treatment , the numbness appears very, very rarely. I believe the day is coming when it will be a thing of the past. I also feel more limber in general. This office is competent, kind, and caring. You will get good treatment here, and you will be treated well. Highly recommended.
