Is Santorini on your bucket list? Every time we mentioned going to Santorini, we’d hear someone else is dying to go there. When we’d mention Mykonos or Athens, responses were relatively flat. “Oh nice, cool” whatever, but eyes would light up for Santorini. Why might this be? ✧ It is a place everyone dreams about, and that is entirely fair. We get it. It is an incredible place with intense energy and beauty. But the entire island does not look like what you’d expect from photographs! ✧ When people think of Santorini, Oia is the village they envision. On social media, we all see the gorgeous photos of structures and flowers and sunsets this island has to offer, but what you don’t see are the miles and miles of empty land covered with remnants of volcanic rock and ash that created this island many years ago. When we first arrived, we were shocked thinking this doesn’t look like the Santorini we’ve seen. Where is that? It’s here in Oia, but there is so much more to the island than that. ✧ We encourage you to go beyond the Instagrammable spots and explore the rest of the island too! Hike the nearby volcano, visit wineries, walk through smaller villages, shop in Fira, take a dip in the “hot” springs, spend time talking to the locals. Don’t limit yourself because of what you see online. Expand your horizons!

Ένα από τα όμορφα σχόλια που είχαμε φέτος το καλοκαιρι♥️ One of the many lovely reviews we had this summer: “Our stay was lovely and that was mostly thanks to the layout of the house. Every couple had their own room and bathroom. All communal areas were very large and comfortable. The whole house was very clean, it was SPOTLESS. We were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality and kindness of the whole family. I would definitely recommend it.. Katie thanks again for everything!” . . . #airbnb #hosting #booking #holidays #greece #destinationgreece #naxos #greekislands #summer

Limnos island Greece #Greece #Ellada🌞🌞🌞 #Limnos #island #LimnosislandGreece #Greekislands #Ελλαδα #Limnosisland #Λημνος #Hellas #Ελλας #Greecia (Η Λήμνος είναι το όγδοο μεγαλύτερο νησί της Ελλάδας με έκταση 476 τετραγωνικά χιλιόμετρα και το τέταρτο σε μήκος ακτών(260 χιλιόμετρα). Βρίσκεται στο βόρειο Αιγαίο,στο Θρακικό πέλαγος,ανάμεσα στο Άγιον Όρος, τη Σαμοθράκη,την Ίμβρο και τη Λέσβο.Μαζί με τον Άγιο Ευστράτιο αποτελούν την επαρχία Λήμνου του νομού Λέσβου. Πρωτεύουσα και κύριο λιμάνι της Λήμνου είναι η Μύρινα, που πήρε το όνομα της γυναίκας του πρώτου βασιλιά του νησιού, του Θόαντα.Ως το 1955 η Μύρινα ονομαζόταν Κάστρο,ονομασία που επικράτησε κατά την ύστερη βυζαντινή περίοδο και άτυπα ακόμα έτσι αποκαλείται από τους παλιότερους Λημνιούς.Η Λήμνος είναι ηφαιστειογενές νησί.Αν και δεν έχει δάση,έχει εκτεταμένες εύφορες πεδιάδες καλλιεργημένες με σιτηρά κι αμπέλια.Επίσης, έχει υπέροχες και καθαρές παραλίες και είναι ένα νησί ιδανικό για ήρεμες διακοπές.Οι βασικές ασχολίες των κατοίκων είναι η κτηνοτροφία,η γεωργία και η αλιεία.Επίσης,ο τουρισμός, το εμπόριο και τα ναυτικά επαγγέλματα.Ο πληθυσμός του νησιού ανέρχεται σε 17.000 κατοίκους περίπου βάσει της απογραφής του 2011(το 2001 ο πληθυσμός είχε βρεθεί περίπου 18.000). Η ανάπτυξη της μεταλλουργίας από τους παλαιότατους κατοίκους του νησιού αποδόθηκε στο θεό Ήφαιστο.Σύμφωνα με το μύθο ο Δίας,μετά από έναν καβγά με την Ήρα,εκσφενδόνισε από τον Όλυμπο τον Ήφαιστο,καθώς αυτός υπερασπίστηκε την μητέρα του,με αποτέλεσμα να πέσει στη Λήμνο και έκτοτε να μείνει ανάπηρος.Οι πρώτοι κάτοικοι του νησιού, τους οποίους ο Όμηρος αποκαλεί Σίντιες,που σύμφωνα με το μύθο ήρθαν από την Ανατολή(Φρυγία)αρχαία και ήταν αγριόφωνοι(=σκληροί, αφιλόξενοι),τον περιέθαλψαν κι εκείνος σε αντάλλαγμα τους δίδαξε την τέχνη της κατεργασίας των μετάλλων,στήνοντας το εργαστήριό του στο ηφαίστειο Μόσυχλος της Λήμνου.Οι Σίντιες ήταν εξαιρετικοί μεταλλουργοί και οι πρώτοι που κατασκεύασαν χάλκινα όπλα με μέταλλα από τη Μικρά Ασία.Οι ανασκαφές στην Πολιόχνη αποκάλυψαν μεγάλο προϊστορικό οικισμό που μπορεί να αποδοθεί σε αυτό το φύλο,ο πολιτισμός του οποίου παρουσιάζει ομοιότητες με εκείνον της Τροίας.)

3 Weeks in Greece budget breakdown: ➡️ . . After I posted this from my Puerto Rico trip I gotta lot of people saying they found it helpful, and since I track every penny I spend every day of my life anyways #iammyfathersdaughter I figured I do it again! It’s what I always wanna know! 🤷🏻‍♀️💲 . . Keeping in mind I don’t plan anything out ahead of time (usually save a lot more this way), and I tend to be a pretty frugal traveler, but since it was only 3 weeks I did splurge on a few things! Anyway....here we go!✨ - - Initial flight: $934 (I did have to rebook this because of the whole passport thing but this is what it would have been and was still reasonable after rebooking) ✈️ . . Accommodation: $455 mostly hostels but occasionally we split an Airbnb or hotel room. 🏪 . . Food: $680 this is with eating out just about every meal...I rarely drink alcohol so I allow myself to splurge on food 😉 . . Transportation: $522 (flights, ferry, buses and trains) we hopped around quite a bit tho, you’d definitely reduce this if you stay in one spot longer. 🚌 . . Miscellaneous : $346, this includes things like my tattoo $60, pedicure $35, scooters $27, data $75, etc. obvious extras, so I’ll put it in the final total, but it’s definitely not a “necessary” expense. 🦄 . . Total $2,967 - - Obviously traveling in Europe isn’t going to be as cheap as places like SE Asia (hello $6 hostels 🙌🏼) but it doesn’t have to completely blow the bank! Anyway hope y’all found it helpful, I’m not a travel blogger (duh) but It’s a FAQ whenever I go on a trip, so there it is! 😘😘😘 - - - - #greece #travel #athens #greece🇬🇷 #budgettravel #traveltips #backpacking #lexiefrenzfitness #yogi #hostellife #backpackeurope #budget #travelpic #greeneyes #hoopearrings #explore #exploretheworld #adventure #greekislands #crete #rhodesgreece #delphi #traveller #getoutside #fitness #entrepreneur

Planning your next family destination? Greece is considered safe and welcoming seaside resorts and large hotel chains are good for family friendly holiday destinations. If you are looking for fun family-friendly facilities: playgrounds, kiddie pools, child entertainment programmes and sports, you can definitely find these in the hotels next to the beach. . . . . #greece #travel #greecestagram #visitgreece #greece🇬🇷 #greece_is_awesome #travelgreece #photography #nature #santorini #greece_travel #greecetrip #europe #hellas #travelgram #travelphotography #crete #photooftheday #traveller #greecelover_gr #greeceisland #greece_nature #travelblogger #greekislands #travelling #greeceislands #grecia #santorinigreece #athens #instatravel

Hard to believe it was almost two months ago that I was in Crete’s Rethymno region chatting with amazing local shop owners and artisans. Brought back some unique items that are now sitting happy in our Greece Collection. 💫 • • Check it out; you’re bound to find something you’ll love! • • #crete #cretegreece #creta #travel #tuesday #islandlife #greece #greekislands #flashback #rethymnon #harbor #ancientgreece #trinkets #trinkettrinket #treasures

I'm going to be cliche and say it's the Monday-est Tuesday ever right now because no phrase has ever rang more true lol. What a morning!! Busy, busy, busy. Just when you think you're all caught up, more just piles up around the corner. Finally getting some time to catch my breath & have a quick bite to eat so I thought I would throw it back to wandering charming streets in Europe again without a care in the world because anywhere is better than here right now lol! I'm looking at the positives though...hooray for a short work week and also for Thanksgiving and a short work week next week lol! Hope everyone's Tuesday is going better than mine so far! P.s. 2nd blog post on Crete coming soon! Once again it's the picture editing that is taking the longest. I promise it's coming! Also, this was shot on my crappy phone because Joe had our nice camera in his hand at the moment shooting other things so I decided to snap away for my Instagram stories. Not too bad for phone quality. . . . . . . . . . . . . #Crete#Chania#beautiful#street#architecture#charming#history#historical#greecelover_gr#travel#wanderlust#europe#island#visitgreece#traveler#travelblogger#lifestyleblogger#greecestagram#sightseeing#explore#adventure#roamtheplanet#exploretocreate#welivetoexplore#greekislands#colorful#acolorstory#beautifuldestinations

✨ On our last night in our hotel, I was super excited to dress up and go for a night walk to Imerovigli with my amazing husband. It was so beautiful! I’m very happy we got to enjoy every moment! I really recommend for couples to visit Greece at least once in their lifetime! It’s very a magical place. 💕 • • • • [ ] @iamgreece @greece @visitgreecegr @santorini @santorini_greece @cyclades_islands

🌪 We were supposed to leave today by ferry to Athens at 1pm but it got cancelled... and there’s no flights either... so we’re definitely not making our flight home tomorrow in the a.m. Who knows when we’ll be able to leave this island... hopefully soon? We’re stressed (VERY) but can‘t let this Medicane Zorbas ruin our trip or mood. 🙃 • • • [ ] @iamgreece @greece @visitgreecegr @santorini @santorini_greece @cyclades_islands • • • • • • •
