GREECE

Greece was a lot of what I thought it was going to be (in a good way!!) and also some surprises. I'll get just a couple of negatives out the way first. It is super dry!!! But nothing a tub of moisturiser can't fix. As much as there are the most picturesque spots I have ever seen there are also a lot of not so nice places - But I have to say the nice places make up for it so whatever!! I also found it really expensive. I went to Athens, Mykonos, Santorini, Paros and Ios. My fave islands were Paros and Mykonos. Paros was probably the most tame and more of a relaxing type vibe and to me the prettiest - snorkelling was amazing and the one MUST is a boat trip to the Blue Lagoon. Mykonos was the opposite where the parties literally don't START until 5am... what! When in Europe I suppose. We also stayed at a really cool hostel there called Paraga... for a dirty cheap hostel it was so much fun. You actually stay in tents with beds and the pool has a bar that looks over the ocean. The dream!!
