As I look through the photographs I took nearly half a year ago in beautiful temperate weather, I’ve come to one conclusion: this trip cannot possibly be summarized in one post. I’ve decided that this one will serve as an introduction and the following entries will be summarized by region.
One major item on my forever growing bucket list is to travel somewhere new at least once a year; whether it’s a neighbouring town or flying across the globe, I’ve kept the terms exceptionally broad incase of work commitments and financial situation.
Up until this point, the only time I’ve ever been close to Europe was a layover en route to visiting family back east. To be quite honest, I’m not exactly sure why Greece called out to me as it did. Just about anyone whose spoken to me would affiliate cities like Paris, Prague or Brussels for my next adventure.
I’m not sure how it worked out but one way or another, in the winter of 2014, I promised myself that I’m going to spend my 25th birthday somewhere outside of Toronto. One way or another that lead to my ultimate decision of wanting to check out Greece.
We split Greece into three must-see regions: Athens, Santorini, and Mykonos.
