Athens | Greece

Firstly I want to apologise for the massive break – ever since I got home I have been crazy busy! I still wanted to share the last of my travel pics so here is the last of the Greece trip!

The last stop on our Greece trip was Athens! I loved Athens, it is so busy and bustling, and just generally fun to explore. Athens is laced with history and architecture which is so nice to see around the more modern buildings.

Every Sunday, they have a special changing of the guards procession at the Parliament that I was lucky enough to see.

The Temple of Zeus is situated in the middle of the city and is beautiful to go visit.

The Acropolis is another beautiful landmark to see. The Acropolis Museum is fantastic to visit to discover some of the history behind the monument, which can be viewed from all around the city.

 

So with that my Greece trip was over! It was such a beautifully relaxing time filled with lots of beaches, historic landmarks and of course, food. I can’t wait to go back!

Folegandros | Greece

Folegandros was a beautiful small island with a quaint little town and beaches scattered around the island.

Chora was the main town on the island and it was packed with beautiful stores and restaurants. For an island with only 600 residents, it was one of the most interesting little towns I have visited so far!

The beaches we frequently visited were Agkali beach and Agios Nikolaos which were connected by a little boat or alternatively, a little hike along the coast which was beautiful. There was a fantastic tavern in between that is definitely worth a visit!

Another beach worth visiting is the tiny beach of Katergo which you can only get to by boat. They come about every hour so you can choose when to go and return! It was a tiny little beach with about 20 people scattered on the shore.

Folegandros is known for its hilltop Church, which I had a beautiful view of from my hotel room!

Choosing the right material is so important when going on a hot, summer holiday. I made the mistake of bringing along a lot of viscose and polyester which I quickly discovered didn’t breathe in the heat wave that I experienced.

Luckily, I had this airy cotton outfit at my disposal which worked perfectly as a light, night time outfit to wear to dinner. Another great alternative is to invest in some good linen items – I bought some shorts and a top in Milos and have been living in them!
