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:
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 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.
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!)
Besides the amazing food and the natural beauty, the people were the best part of visiting Greece. People were so kind, accommodating, and happy to have Americans visiting – not all places are like that, so it definitely stands out when it happens.
I could definitely see us going back some day – but there are so many other places on our list, too.
