As you can imagine I am pinching myself daily to make sure this is not a dream. Greece best watch out because this non-world traveler is leaving the country headed their way with a group of super fun people. It is guaranteed lots of craziness is going to happen there in September. If you can attend this event I certainly hope you do. It is going to be such a memorable week.
