Starting the first two weeks off right!
This summer we were both fortunate enough to have off from work and decided to take a 'upscaled' backpacking trip to Greece and Turkey. This backpacking trip is a bit different than when one my best friend, Lindsay Reibold, and I travelled for 6 weeks (back in 2010)... we aren't staying in hostels and have a bit more clean clothes :)
Unfortunately I don't take many photos with my iPhone (usually my camera) but here's a glimpse of what Greece was like.
We flew into Athens and stayed for two nights. We weren't huge fans of Athens because there was a strike and we spent the majority of our time stuck in traffic on a hop on hop off bus. But our hotel had a roof top bar with a few of the Acropolis. The Acroplis was also closed because of the strike... you win some you loose some!
After Athens we took at 3 hour ferry to Naxos... our paradise, divine abode, cloud nine, okay you got it. I was really looking forward to meeting up with one of my best (Greek) friend, Zoe. But due to high winds her ferry never made it! Next time, right? We stayed at a beautiful hotel, Camara. In our 4 days we ate some of the best food (most of Greece gets the food from Naxos), relaxed on sandy beaches (we learned sand is uncommon), rode around on scooters and met some great people. By far our favorite island we've seen in Greece!
The ferry ride.
By far the best dinner I've ever had on the beach with my love.
Sunset view from our hotel.
Passageway to nowhere...
Switched up from a four wheeler to a car for the day.
Our hotel's bar and pool in Oia.

Sunset at the Acropolis!
I am writing this after a ferry ride from Rhodes (1 1/2 hours), a taxi, two buses (7 hours)... in TURKEY!
All the love in the world to you all!
