A Greek Surprise

After a couple of hours of exploring the castle at Monemvasia and the great local wines, we decided to take the ferry from Neapoli to Elafonisos to go swimming at Simos beach. The ride there was spectacular and relaxing. As the boat attendant explained, it is one of the only places where you can see 7 different colors of the sea with some of the best snorkeling. Once my boyfriend and I arrived at Simos, I was wondering why he was acting all nervous. After all, it was one of the calmest places on Earth! To my surprise, he proposed to me on the Simos beach and it was the happiest day of my life! Greece holds some of the best memories for me, including this one!
