our time in greece was quickly coming to an end and we couldn't believe we were on our last full day! not only did we not spend enough time in mykonos, i felt like i wanted to explore even more of the islands...i was just getting started!! but we came to terms with our the end of the trip and checked off the last few things on our to-do list! one of those things was riding an atv. i'm sorry...how cool are they! i definitely didn't feel cool enough driving one but andrea and i rocked our newest accessory with ease: and by ease, i mean practicing for roughly 5 hours before really being comfortable. this seemed to be the mode of transportation everyone resorted to and we obviously needed to do so to blend in.Read More
when originally planning our trip, we initially just planned to visit santorini and weren't even going to consider going to another island. but after a little bit of research, we concluded that we needed to visit mykonos as well. andrea and i didn't think anything could top santorini and we, truthfully, we had very low expectations for mykonos. once we hopped off the ferry from santorini and checked into our hotel, we knew we were in for a fun couple of days! we immediately dropped our bags off in our (stunning) room and headed right into town for an afternoon of exploration.Read More
our time in santorini was almost up, but one thing that was still on our bucket list was to take a cruise around the island to watch the sunset. we were so lucky to work with spiridakos and joined one of their semi-private cruises complete with food and drinks. earlier that day, the waters were so rocky that they had to cancel their afternoon excursion but thankfully it was safe enough for us by sunset! we had a scheduled pickup at 3:30pm from our hotel to head down to the marina so andrea and i decided to have a leisurely lunch by the pool. what started out as relaxing, quickly turned into a frantic race to get ready because the car had arrived at 2:30!Read More
just a piece of advice: it may not be the best idea to wear the flowiest dress you own on top of the windiest cliff. just saying. but if you're going to do it, do it in santorini!
as a fun fact about this location, andrea and i spotted it when we were shooting the night before at this location. you could even see this spot when standing from the steps! the reason it caught our eye was because there was a gorgeous wedding shooting taking place and i could only imagine how those photos turned out! we clearly got a little jealous and decided to head there the next morning.Read More
each morning during our explorations in santorini, we built up quite the appetite. and because we were out the door before the sun, we were able to make it back to the hotel before the end of breakfast...and the kirini had quite the setup! thankfully breakfast was included with our room but this wasn't just your classic continental breakfast; it was truly a feast! our second morning at the hotel, we decided to ditch the restaurant seating and sit up on one of the hotel's many landings overlooking oia. so we grabbed all of the food we could carry (and then some) and headed up the steps to have our breakfast with a side of oia.Read More
it was another 5am wake-up call for our second morning in santorini and it was this day that i thought andrea was going to throw the alarm against the wall...but it was a good thing she didn't! one of the reasons that this morning was my favorite in santorini wasn't because i was wearing this ahhmazing skirt but because i felt like we had our bearings of the city. our first day we were simply exploring oia and getting lost in the many streets. but come day two, we were "experts." we were able to pinpoint the exact places we wanted to venture to first and that was a monumental stress-reliever.Read More
in a sea of blue and white, i knew i needed to shake things up and gave this city a classic pop of red. i decided to wear this dress on our first real night in santorini (i don't count the first one as we went to bed as soon as we arrived) and it paired so well with the sunset that night! it was perfectly flowy enough to keep me cool and it still allowed me to eat all the food at black rock. and the flowy dress was necessary because andrea and i ate all of the calamari they had in stock.Read More
