I was just wondering the same thing...


message 11: by Nicola (new)

Nicola | 644 comments Sorry about that. It should say "summer love, that takes place during the summer, or at a "summer-like" vacation destination, but I decided to take that out when I got Greece as the geography category. I guess I did not cut and paste correctly - I will fix that now.
