Skala in Frame
At least in my experience as an American, Greece has always been the homeland of democracy, economic uncertainty, and the Parthenon. It was only until I met Kate that I discovered that it's also paradise. The great thing about living in London is that there is so much to see right on your doorstep, and incredibly cheap last minute holidays to many of Greece's turquoise islands are one such example. We flew to Kefalonia roundtrip and stayed in Skala for a week for £180 per person. Right now, roundtrip flights from my native Greensboro to Kefalonia are $3,000 - $5,000. Fuck that. For that £180, we experienced life off the Greek mainland, some incredible food, Kefalonia's own unique history, and of course, soaked up the sun.
