Me at the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. Fun fact- the Acropolis was built in 447 BC is over 2,460 years old!
I absolutely had to stop to take photo while doing the Thira to Oia hike
Greek homes with a pretty pink touch of flowers 🌸
Fresh out the ocean!
Seeing all of Santorini from the top!
Waves of the sea
Athens, Greece was AMAZING! It is known for its archaeological treasures. The building behind me in the picture is the Acropolis! This place was home to kings, a citadel, mythical home to gods, and a religious center. It withstood bombardment, massive earthquakes and yet it still stands strong as a reminder of Ancient Greece's history!
You must pay a visit to Mykonos! I would consider Mykonos as the party island, seriously the Party Island lol. There is an igloo nightclub that we visited, it was so much fun, and don’t worry they have bright colorful mink coats for you at the door! Back in the 1950s, Mykonos was and still is a top vacation spot for many celebrities. You will need a car so you can visit and see all that the island has to offer. Be sure to visit Scorpio beach, this is hands down the best beach club on the island. Also, be sure to go for a scuba dive with GODIVE MYKONOS, our underwater experience was superb! Oh and 180 Sunset bar is a great choice for the sunset.
Get your camera ready, you will not be able to put it down. Santorini is famous for stunning views and beautiful sunsets. Book a tour to see all of the island and go on the famous wine tours. The island is known for some of the best wineries in the world. Also, the hike from Thira to Oia was astonishing. I could not stop taking pictures! The hike was ten miles so bring plenty of water, but you will take breaks to enjoy the beautiful views. Oh and btw the island has its very own active volcano, don't be startled if you hear a big rumble!
Delos is a Greek island where the Greek God of light, Apollo, was born. It was the major religious center and port during the 1st millennium B.C. The island is uninhabited so the only way to visit this island is to hop on the ferry tour from a nearby island (Mykonos, Paros, or Naxos). The island is very very very hot! Be sure to bring a hat and a COLD bottle of water while enjoying the sculptures.
Naxos is the largest island in the Greek Cyclades. It is known for its' beautiful mountains, valleys, and stunning views. Be sure to rent a car to travel to the mountain top to get a view of the entire island! Also, I highly recommend exploring all the traditional villages. My favorite stop was Halki! We also booked a day sailing trip and met some great friends to enjoy the scenery and sky blue waters.
