Wanderlust Wednesday: Escape to Greece
I find that most of you just like my travel videos and photos.So back by popular demand for this #wanderlustWednesday are a few photos (more to come later) of my solo trip to Athens, Greece and some neighboring Greek Islands, followed by a short video story.
This trip was taken in 2014. It was a last minute trip that I found on Skyscanner. I had wanted to go to Greece since 2010. Then a civil war erupted. So I forgot about it for a few years. When I was planning to go, my Greek co-worker told me that tickets never go below $1000. So when the price hovers around that price she said that's when I should buy.
Then in March of 2014 I had a chance to escape for a week, so I checked Skyscanner's everywhere feature and Greece was on sale for $850! I snagged the ticket and booked my hotel later.
Enjoy the photos and video!
|The port of Hydra. I took a tour around the Greek islands. *see our affiliates link to shop Viator - where I got the best deal.|
|Walking around Hydra I realized everything's in Greek!|
|Taking the solo trip was a little uneasy for me. Everything was so beautiful and I wanted to share it with someone. But it opened it up for the staff to chat with me and the captain let me drive the ship!|
|...and then he wanted lots of hugs afterwards.|
|Walking around the ruins by myself, I was still recording one of my vlogs. These two said they recognized me and wanted a picture. |
Look ma! I'm internet famous!
|The gorgeous sunset was so perfect. This photo came straight out of my Samsung Galaxy S5.|
|Every ruin had a story. It was hard to keep up. But for once, I really just tried to enjoy the trip, instead of work = noting every quirky little fun fact.|
|And of course there were plenty of selfie worthy moments.|
