Denver to Greece Wedding Trip

denver greece weddingIf we’ve had the chance to sit down and talk, you probably know I love to travel. And if not, you can see my posts on my trips to London and Tokyo here and here.

Today I’m going to share all about my trip to Greece!

I went to Greece to photograph an amazing wedding (blog on that one coming). But today I’m just going to share about us being tourists 😊

We jumped around a little bit to three different locations:

Idra

We told our travel agent that we just wanted to eat, drink, walk around and see some cool stuff. So he recommended Idra. Idra is a popular weekend getaway spot for people in Europe. There’s not a single motorized vehicle on the whole island. If you can’t walk to where you’re going, you take a donkey.

Our favorite breakfasts were at our hotel in Idra. The eggs were amazing, the Greek yogurt was so different from the yogurt here. We just loved staying there.

Kalymnos

Kalymnos was where the wedding was, but oh man did we get some time to relax and enjoy, too! Our hotel was right on the beach, so we got to go swimming in the Aegean. It. Was. Cold. But it always is. I loved it, but it was too cold for Kyle.

Kalymnos was where we had all the best food – from the rehearsal dinner, to the actual wedding, to the little café across the street, the food was just indescribable.

Athens

Last on our stop was Athens. We heard some stories that had us a little spooked regarding the safety of Athens, so we were a little careful. But honestly it wasn’t really necessary. We felt very safe the whole time we were there, and even went out at night. (Nothing crazy – just walked to the nearest ice cream spot!)

I could definitely see us going back some day – but there are so many other places on our list, too.

    You just gave me major travel envy! I cannot believe that there wasn’t a single motorized vehicle in Idra. That is amazing! I hope you rode a Donkey somewhere.

    This was so fun to read through! After seeing The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants in middle school, I thought Greece would be an amazing place to go! I still have yet to travel there, but I am yet again intrigued after reading this!
