Adventuring in Greece || Athens, Mykonos, & Santorini
GREEEEECE. The day has finally arrived that Hunter & I have enough photos swaddled together to share with you! We haven’t even been home for a week – meep! One day I’ll put together an itinerary like I did for Iceland because inspiring adventure is my jam, but today is about p-h-o-t-o-s. Weee! If Greece hasn’t been on your radar, it’s time to grab someone’s pen & add a new line to your bucket list because DANG.
If I could make this entire text about food I would – Greek food is God’s gift to mankind. The fresh & crisp vegetables, creamy olive oil, tangy slabs of cheese, and perfectly seasoned meat piled over warm homemade pita bread is enough to make me consider buying another plane ticket RN. Oh and the cats. THE CATS.
We spent two days in Athens, two days on the island of Mykonos, then our final four days on the island of Santorini. Each place was incredibly different, it felt like we traveled the world in just one trip — Athens was full of ancient history (and the best traditional Greek food), Mykonos won my heart over with its quaint, cozy pebble-laiden alleys & remarkably friendly people, then Santorini swooped in with outrageous cliff views of the Mediterranean. We were incredibly fortunate to combine the work we love with our family vacation – waking up at the buttcrack of dawn to take photos of rad couples at sunrise, then catching Hunter’s parents, sister & brother-in-law, and our two nieces for a day of beaching, hiking, and exploring the white-washed layered towns.
>> I’m sure I’ll have plenty more to write about in the future itinerary post to come, so for now catch the vibes of our trip in a few memories caught on camera (and iPhones, because #realtalk our hands cramp from these heavy cameras sometimes you guys).
