This is me in Santorini in 2004. My hair was much shorter then. The image of Dolly Parton on my T-shirt was less faded then. And there was definitely not a 1200-passenger Sea Diamond cruise ship freshly sunk off the island then.
If you didn't see the video footage of the ship's final moments before going under, check it out here. It's really freaky.
My inspiration for this post is as follows: My host on this particular trip to Greece (who I will not name) informed me yesterday that I need to get out and travel more if I want to continue writing a blog about travel. He suggested Upright & Stowed has become too much about NYC and too much about me.
Actually, it's kind of true. But since I'm too busy starting a new business to do much good travel, I'm doing my best to inspire with stories and musings that I hope will inspire you to travel. I'm not holding a grudge against the unmentionable person who told me to Hit the Road. Because that very same person turned me on to AAdvantage Shopping, which lets me earn airline miles while I sit on my ass shopping at home! Thanks for the tip, B---y.
