November 2017 Round-Up | Cathedrals and Cafes Blog

Was that a quick month or what? I love the holidays but always feel like they’re over as soon as they begin. I really want to try and stretch out the holiday this year and slow down, if at all possible. You know those cliché things like sipping hot cocoa by the fire and wrapping […]

Erin from Cathedrals and Cafes in the village of Halki, Naxos Greece

The island of Naxos is the largest of the Cyclades islands and yet might be an island that some travelers overlook.
