Ontario, Quebec, Greece, and Italy
We're getting on a plane again! During the pandemic, we made great use of our microcamper as we explorered parts of BC we'd never visited before and as we drove across Canada to visit our parents (all when allowed by health orders!). But now that we've received our vaccines and health orders are changing, we're getting ready for long-term world-travel again. It's a bit scary to get on a plane while Covid-19 is still so widespread, but we can't stay still forever. So it's time to take a deep breath, put on a mask, and get on a flight! Our first stop will be to see our families in Ontario. And since we're already in Ontario, we thought it would make sense to continue heading east to Europe. We'll be landing in Athens, Greece where we've rented an AirBnB for a month. Afterwards, we'll tour Greece and Italy, making our way to Naples by the end of November for our flight home.
