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
I love tulips. Together with lavender, they are my favorite flowers. I am a big fan, especially of all these pastel ones – white, light yellow and light pink. I must confess that we don’t have plants in pots at home, but there is always a tulip bouquet in the vase. It immediately gives my room some spring vibes and makes the interior looks so cozy and girly… It is not surprising that I have always dreamed of visiting all these colorful fields of tulips in Holland. Finally, during our last visit to Amsterdam – we made it!
Best things to do in Mykonos will satisfy everyone… Think about idyllic peaceful Greek landscape, picturesque white houses, and the tranquil Aegean Sea. Ok, this is how Mykonos used to be. Today, when someone says Mykonos, you think about crazy all-night-long parties, crowds of celebrities and paparazzi hunting for famous ones. Who would have thought that one visit of Jackie O. would forever change the island into Mecca for smaller and bigger stars? Sometimes it may be a little bit hard to find a Greek spirit here, which many seek while visiting the Cyclades (especially breathtaking Santorini) or Crete. It’s definitely easier to find Louis Vuitton or Hermes boutique! But what about the best things to do in Mykonos?
We were sitting at home, looking out the window at lovely Munich winter… To make the story short – the weather wasn’t encouraging us to leave a cozy sofa. Winter in Munich consists mainly of rain, rain, two weeks of snow and more rain again. Why not going somewhere sunny and warm? Even for a weekend? We have already been to Rome in winter and enjoyed our gateway so much! Magda, Michal, Barcelona in winter – that’s a perfect idea!
Fountains of Rome are really stunning and I can strongly advise you to skip the tourist attractions and see them instead. Crowds at the Colosseum, a huge queue to St. Peter’s Basilica, thousands of tourists on the Palatine Hill… Tired of being constantly pushed by other people all day long, we asked ourselves: how to feel the real atmosphere of this city? Is it even possible in a place which seems to be one big tourist attraction? Visiting Rome doesn’t have to look like this. If you would like to feel the real Italian atmosphere rather than “giving high fives” to monuments, we have something for you. A walk among the Roman fountains will help you discover many gems and surprising views of the Italian capital. It will be a moment of rest after crowds of visitors in the most famous sights.
Paris, Paris, Paris… Some may say that this city is so obvious, so crowded, so pompous and so bloated. Some may say that Rome is more romantic. Or Venice. Or Verona. Although it’s hard to deny that this city is very popular among tourists, you have to admit it looks like actually designed for lovers. What makes the French capital so charming? Check these romantic things to do in Paris!Continue Reading
