Travel Light, Travel Safe & Travel Happy!


Happiness isn't a destination... It is a way of traveling! ... Choose to be happy!


My Greek friend Stratis says "If you can't change it, just enjoy it" Good advice!

Everyday we try to learn something. When we are traveling we learn countless things daily ... ♥ We love that!

We have an organic product also which should keep away the slugs but it doesn't work well. Seems the slugs making jokes about it ;) I kill them myself everytime I see them but since they are mostly night active and I'm sleeping at this time of day 90 % survive my attacks.

You're most welcome, Sylvia :) I love Dahlia so much but mine were all eaten by slugs this year :( We had lots of rain during spring and summer and the slugs are a pest. Just killed 10 of them tonight. I hunted lots of them already but I can't guard the garden all night. Most of the veggies I've planted have been eaten also :( Not fun to plant again.
