Kalós orísate!
Welcome dear friends and family!

Thank you so much for considering a gift toward our once in a lifetime honeymoon experience! Since we are blessed to already have a lot of the home items a newly engaged couple needs, we truly appreciate your generosity of a shared experience, and we will cherish the memories of these gifts for the rest of our lives. Getting married is all about undertaking a new journey through life together, and our honeymoon to Greece will be the first steps in our adventure as husband and wife.

We are incredibly excited for our honeymoon! After a whirlwind two months of wedding planning, we can't wait to soak up some sun, swim in crystal clear water, explore the Greek islands' natural wonders, discover one of the world's oldest and most developed cultural heritage, and engorge ourselves on Mediterranean cuisine! We've included some of the specific activities and experiences we want to enjoy in the registry below. We want to simply relax, learn, and explore our gorgeous surroundings, but more importantly, eat, drink and be married!

Thank you so much for helping to make our perfect honeymoon come true!
Kaló taksídi! Bon voyage!

With lots of love and gratitude,
Hilary & Tommy

We're going to Athens, Greek Islands!

We love to travel, experience new cultures, sample new foods, and learn new languages. Greece has it all!

As the greeks say...
Mía glóssa then íne poté arketí....
...Because one language (way of seeing the world) is never enough!

Greece offers a myriad of experiences, landscapes and activities. Greece is a country with a hallowed past and an at-times turbulent present. It is equally a land where the languages of recent migrant communities contribute to Greece's status as one of Europe's more recent multicultural societies. The Greeks may curse their luck at times, distrust their politicians and believe 'oiling' the wheels of bureaucracy a fact of life, but their indomitable bonhomie and zest for life, their curiosity and their unquestioning hospitality to the visitors in their midst is what makes traveling in the country an inevitably unforgettable experience.

Athens is the capital of Greece, the founding city of the Olympic games, and a historical source of culture, science and commerce. From the colorful markets to the ancient monuments, Athens is rich with history and an important influence on the development of Western civilization. Named after the goddess of wisdom Athena, Athens circles eight hills within its borders. The most prominent of these, the Acropolis, stands as the ultimate architectural and artistic expression of the ancient Athenian spirit. The city's port, Piraeus, is the gateway to the Greek isles.

Located in the central and southern part of the Aegean Sea, there are 39 islands in the Cyclades, of which 24 are inhabited. On these small islands, where the past meets the present, one can find both peace and tranquility and colorful nightlife. Narrow paths full of flowers, whitewashed houses, blue windows and white churches under the dazzling sun are complimented by golden and black beaches. This is one of those magical places where the reality outstrips the postcards.
