After a successful 2019 at FXExpress Publications, Inc., I thought it would be a good chance to look back at the year and try to relive some of the memories I made both personally and professionally. As my first full year working at FXExpress and within the industry, 2019 was filled with many new destinations and experiences that have given me a much better understanding of the world of travel.
The Saronic or Argo Saronic Islands of Greece call travelers to explore its seven small islands and islets brimming with history, natural sites and more. With most easily accessible by boat, the islands’ proximity to ports of Athens make the Saronic Islands an ideal destination for those preferring shorter boat rides. In fact, trips from Athens ports to the islands take only between 10 minutes and two hours, depending on the island you choose, making them perfect for day or weekend trips. From Piraeus port, you can access Hydra, Spetses, Aegina and Poros directly. Come explore these stunning islands with us and find the inspiration to plan your next trip to these islands. Hydra Hydra town curves around a slope overlooking the Argosaronic Gulf like an amphitheater and is considered one of the most romantic destinations in Greece. Most unique to the island is its lack of vehicles. People on the island get around on mules and donkeys as well as water taxis, making for a peaceful and laid-back day. Hydra lies a two-hour ferry ride from Piraeus port in Athens.
Every year I make sure to take at least one trip to the Philadelphia Christmas Village, and this past weekend I got to check it off of my to-do list for the holiday season. If you are unfamiliar with it, the Philadelphia Christmas Village is located at LOVE Park and features more than 80 vendors selling authentic European food, ornaments and arts & crafts from all over the world.
