Country Number 30: GREECE!

Hello all! It’s been nearly a month since I updated on my website, but for good reason: I went on vacation to Greece with my family!

My parents have dreamed of taking all of my family on a special trip to Greece for years. My Dad went there when he was 16 and had always wanted to go back- and since he talked about it so much, it made my Mom really want to go! They wanted to wait for a time that they could take their whole family, and so finally, for my parents 25th wedding anniversary, they were able to fulfill their dream and take my four siblings and I on the vacation of a lifetime. And the icing on the cake? My Aunt, Uncle, and three cousins from France came along as well.

My trip to Greece marked a very special occasion- Greece is the THIRTIETH country I have traveled to in my life. Pretty incredible that in a matter of four years, I’ve been to thirty countries! I feel so very blessed for this opportunity, and even more so because Greece was AMAZING. It did Country Number 30 serious justice. I absolutely fell in love with Greece: the gorgeous architecture on the islands (white-washed walls and rounded at the edges), the stunning views, the food (I have now fallen in love with tzatziki, baba ganoush, moussaka, and the myriad of other dips and stews served, along with Halloumi cheese, Saganaki cheese, Souvlaki, Gyros, and let’s not forget the seafood), the history, the culture- and to top it off, it was the best family vacation we ever had. Greece left such a huge impression on me, and I would dearly love to go again someday.

I’ve decided to kick off the trip with pictures from the island Mykonos, the first (out of three) legs of our trip. Mykonos is an incredibly lovely island, with winding streets, friendly people, and plenty of things to see and do. Check out the pictures below and turn green with envy at this incredible place- or perhaps inspired to travel there yourself!

Here is to Country Number 30! Here is to Greece! Here is to my wonderful family! And here is to Mykonos!

Our first view of Mykonos, straight off the plane

The Mykonos airport

My brother Donner, sisters Siobhan and Hillary, and my Mom taking in their first sights of Greece!

The water here is GORGEOUS.

Our lovely hotel that we stayed in during Mykonos

A stone edifice right outside our hotel

You’ll see that all of the architecture here are whitewashed walls, painted doors, and rounded edges. It’s beautiful and I love it.

The famous windmills at Mykonos

My favorite thing about Mykonos is the buildings.

The ‘downtown’ area of Mykonos- so many fun hours of exploring up and down small, winding streets

Downtown, a little more closer- right on the water!

I can’t get enough of the intricate architecture here

Some of the winding alleyways

The beach!

Some of the bluest water I’ve ever seen- we went Parasailing!

Beautiful Mykonos

 

I hope you enjoyed the pictures of an incredible, beautiful island. I absolutely recommend visiting Mykonos if you are in Greece.

My next update will feature pictures from Athens, so stay tuned!

Much love,

Brittany
