I'm so excited to share with you two new and big things:
- I updated the look of TheModline.com (do you like it??) and
- Chris & I were lucky enough to go on our honeymoon in Greece!
We chose Greece because we've done Mexico and Hawaii and really wanted something different, more cultural. Greece just seemed like one of those picturesque places, full of history, culture and delicious traditional food. A place where you could get lost and be fully consumed by an adventure.
We visited Athens, Mykonos, Naxos and of course, Santorini! Athens was tough, edgy and a little gruff. There's graffiti everywhere. The shopping is good and the Acropolis is a must see.
Mykonos - windy, maze-like and beautiful. All the buildings are white with fun, brightly coloured doors and windows. Restaurants and stores line the small streets, there's even a resident pelican that hangs out near the old church.
Naxos is a farming island. The coast is lined with small villages packed with hotels and restaurants. The town was a short ATV ride from each village, and featured an old castle at the top of the hill. When you leave town you're in the middle of the valley where there are tons of farms, cattle and goats! Back in the village the beaches are beautiful and the water is super clear.
Santorini is by far the most romantic and beautiful place I've ever been. If you Google search images of Greece you'll most likely get pictures of white buildings with blue tops. That's Santorini. Everything is built up along the cliffs so each hotel and home has a gorgeous view of the ocean and the caldera (the volcano).
We loved every single day we spent in Greece. It has lots of charm! One quirk, are the road signs... there aren't that many! So getting directions and locating your hotel with just an address isn't easy.
Greece has become one of my top destinations to get away, experience something new and just experience the view! It's different every at every turn. Put Greece on your bucket list, and visit it sooner than later!
Here's a little peek into our honeymoon.
