Aegean Sea, Greece
When my friend heard about my pending European Trip this time last year, she was very excited with the idea and persuaded told me about extending it for a little longer then meeting me up in Greece. It didn’t take too much thinking and you bet I jumped on the idea and got very excited of doing Greek Island hopping. One thing was clear though, we didn’t want to join group tours and want to plan it ourselves. With some research we found out ferry schedules and booked it ourselves. Here are the photos of our first ferry ride and a little teaser of what is about to come soon!
We agreed on going to the two famous islands – Mykonos and Santorini. We could have flown island to island but because we were in a budget as well (5 weeks in Europe could cost you a lot), we decided to do the ferry ride. From Athens airport, we took a bus ride to the quaint little town of Rafina where we had our first Greek dinner before our 7:30 am ferry the next day.
Our ferry was massive and I mean MASSIVE! Sure it could accommodate hundreds of people but when it stopped by the island of Andros, I went back to the deck and saw people disembarking, then scooters, then cars, then big buses and trucks. It was scary to think that our same ship carried all of those on. We also stopped by Tinos, another island in the Cyclades archipelago, and saw the cute little white houses as we approached the port.
If only I had more time, I would stop by and explore all the islands in Greece. But even that could probably take me a lifetime!Follow Sky Envy: Bloglovin' / Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest
