  • Best Travel Moment: I was staying at a small apartment in Sami, Kefalonia Island, Greece. I had walked a few kilometers to see the Drogarati Caves. While walking back, I saw a girl and her father were riding mopeds. She only spoke Greek and I know very little, but she gestured that she would give me a ride. I hopped on and whipped through the beautiful countryside on the back of a kind stranger. Once we made it back to Sami, she let me off, waved and I managed to say a quick “efkaristo.” That little act of kindness from a stranger made my trip.
