- Swimming in the Mediterranean Sea
- Watching the sunset in Oia
- Partying until sunrise in Mykonos
- Eating too much Baklava
My last stop on my 2012 Eurotrip was Greece. I stayed in Athens for a few days to visit the Acropolis, Acropolis Museum and Plaka, and then it was off to the islands.
After a very windy flight, I landed in Mykonos excited to enjoy some sun and seafood by the beach. This was a perfect few days – I rented an ATV and headed to Elia Beach during the day, and at night I explored the town and ate fresh seafood. Mykonos is considered a party island – and on my last night I went to Paradise Club to see DJ Afrojack. This was a crazy night and even though the ferry ride the next morning was not fun, it was well worth it.
From Mykonos I sailed to Santorini for my last stop of my trip. Perched high up on a volcanic caldera, the views from Santorini made me feel like I was in heaven. Looking out over the cliffs, there was nothing but clear blue sea as far as you could see. I stayed at Hotel Afroessa in Imerovigli and the views from my studio were breathtaking. I would highly recommend visiting the Greek Islands, my time in Greece was a perfect and relaxing end to a wonderful trip all throughout Europe. Below are some photos from my time in Greece:
