I don’t know why, but choosing a perfect hotel is always the hardest part when planning our trips. Why? Here we go. Some are too far away from the city, other ones have supposedly bad food, I don’t like the decor of the next few ones, and even when we finally find something kind of cool, the night there costs a small fortune… Even when we finally decide on something, we’re still wondering whether we made a right choice! However, if you’re facing troubles finding a perfect hotel in Paros, we, fortunately, have a good answer for you. Mr & Mrs White hotel is an ideal place. Continue Reading
Just an hour by ferry ride from the magical Naxos there is another unique Cycladic island – Paros, along with its smaller “sister” – Antiparos. Both islands are extremely scenic and ideal for a relaxing holiday. This is not a typical mass-tourism destination, and certainly, it is definitely quieter (and cheaper!) than eg. Mykonos or Santorini. However, Paros instantly made it to the top 3 of our favorite Greek islands – amazing landscapes, charming towns, beautiful beaches… You should definitely check out best things to do in Paros and Antiparos!
If you don’t feel like walking through the crowded streets of Santorini and have enough of paparazzi in Mykonos, but still dream of a true atmosphere of Cyclades, Naxos is a great choice. Spectacular mountain views, white-washed houses, tiny streets, some of Europe’s most beautiful beaches… Sounds like a perfect holiday, right? What are the best things to do in Naxos then?
Although we love pretty intense and insane road trips (you can see how our New Zealand or US West Coast itinerary was packed!), during our last trip to Greece we simply wanted to relax and unwind. I have been looking for some great place to stay for a long time. We’re not fans of large, impersonal hotels, so we wanted to stay in some unique accommodation. Finally, I came across the Naxos Rock Villas. Absolutely spectacular and one-of-a-kind place, which in itself is a great reason to visit the island of Naxos.Continue Reading
After our Santorini wedding, we decided to spend our honeymoon in Ios. It’s a small island located between Santorini and Mykonos, famous for really wild all-night (and morning!) long parties. What are the best things to do in Ios?
Santorini is definitely the most romantic island in Greece… No wonder it has become one of the most desired honeymoon destinations in the world! As you know from one of the previous posts, we were enchanted by this island as well. Many people ask us how to organize a romantic getaway on your own. So, here it is, a step by step guide to your once-in-a-lifetime Santorini honeymoon!
What to do in Santorini? Many of you wonder if there is actually anything else to see than a beautiful caldera view. Of course! We had a chance to drive across the whole island several times and we found our favorite things to do in Santorini. There is probably nothing more rewarding than discovering some unusual places on your own, which you haven’t seen 1000 times before on the Instagram feed ;). All the necessary practical tips about planning holidays in Santorini, you’ll find here. So, let’s explore the island with us!
Probably you don’t know it, but we’re real fans of Greece. Every year we try to visit a new place in this unique country. We love it so much, that we even got married in Santorini 🙂 This island is full of magic, breathtaking views, vibrant Greek atmosphere, not to mention delicious vinsanto wine… Definitely different from party island of Mykonos or Crete with all-inclusive resorts. Santorini is a dream destination for a romantic getaway or a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon. We were wondering where to stay in Santorini for a long time. We wanted a place, where we could organize a wedding and spend some unforgettable days after. Check which hotels we find truly amazing and find out where to stay in Santorini!
From the very first moment, as soon as our ferry from Crete entered the caldera and we could admire thousands of white & blue cave houses, we fell in love with this tiny island. Spectacular, world’s most beautiful sunset in Oia, tranquility, breathtaking hotels overlooking the Aegean Sea… While wandering in the streets of Fira, at one point we saw a newly-weds. A crazy idea crossed our minds: “Maybe we also can get married in Santorini?”
Many people think that holidays organized by the travel agency are not true traveling. Honestly? I totally disagree with this approach. First of all, it’s the perfect solution for many super busy people. Sometimes traveling with a travel agency is just much cheaper than a self-organized trip. I have noticed this especially when it comes to the most popular Greek islands – airline tickets from Munich to Crete are more expensive than a one-week all-inclusive holiday package offered by the travel agency! In fact, it all depends on what you plan to do during holidays. Will you only explore 100 different paths from your hotel room to the pool (with a drink in your hand, obviously)? Or maybe you will decide to explore the world outside the hotel walls? If you want to make your holidays a truly breathtaking experience, check these 18 unique things to do in Crete! Continue Reading
