two-week long African holiday, as some of your may have seen my stream of
pictures on Instagram and Facebook. I went right in the
middle of hot and blazing summer but now that I am back to London, its like
being put in a fridge having swapped warm and toasty sunshine, yes the
kind of toasty that gets the serotonin juices going. At 35-40oC
it was a blissful two weeks and now I am back London is grey, wet and windy, all wrapped around the
leftovers of Hurricane Gonzales. So you can’t blame a girl when she is already
day dreaming about a girly trip to sunnier destinations.
though is that she thinks in dollars while I ponder in pounds, so we have to
make sure where ever we go its suits my budget and both hers and her friend, when it comes to getting their money’s worth in dollars.
toying with the idea of Croatia, Spain or Greece. I have been to both Croatia
and Spain you can read about my musical weekend in Croatia and my sisterly visit to Madrid. Having also missed the TBEX meetup for bloggers that was held in Athens, Greece last week, I am gutted I couldn’t go. Hence why we are now super excited to sync diaries, budgets and officially pin down Greece. It’s those
picturesque blue church domes in Santorini’s Oia, standing out among white villas on the edges of
the island or maybe the idea of chillaxing on sun loungers with sea views and
groups of islands created by volcanoes beautifully drenched in warm sunny glows. The very idea of it has me salivating. So how does one get her serotonin
with sisters in tow and not break the bank?! We have seen a couple of great deals on First Choice who have flights to plenty of Mediterranean destinations. This also means we have much more
flexibility on when we fly out depending on when my two American companions can
land in the UK. If Greece doesn’t happen(god forbid), we may head to Egypt, where I did my first sea dive last year – pictures below. Can you tell I have a theme for wanting to be near the sea?
are most likely going to blow a good 7-10 days in Greece. As much as those
stunning pictures of Santorini are calling my name each time I have my laptop
on, I also want to explore Athens and immerse myself in Greek mythology, the history and of course the delicious good and wine, perhaps party like Zeus, the
Father of Gods and men was throwing down a soiree to end all soirees on Mount
reader, blogger, dreamer and wanderlusters! Been to Greece? Any tips for transportation between the islands? We are hoping to book before the end of the year, but I would still love to hear about any hotel recommendations in Santorini, Mykonos, Athens or any other city you think we should consider. I love hearing about first hand experiences when I travel. This is one of the reasons behind the blog, I get to share first
hand accounts of places I have been too, in the hope of helping someone else (or get tips from you too) better
plan their next getaway for some RnR or
full on adventure!
restaurants, sights, activities and everything cool in between you have experienced or
something you may have come across about the Greece that we might want to add to our girly trip itinerary.
