You can’t Google the Greek experience.
 
I did or, really, I tried to before my boyfriend, Nick Oyer, and I arrived in Athens, Greece, on Dec. 25.
 
It was supposed to be a relaxing, week-long vacation when, honestly, I stressed and prepped for it better than most do for college entrance exams.
 
While I consider myself an experienced traveler, this trip was the first time I’d leave the country and I didn’t want to arrive uninformed.
