As much as I really reeeeally wanted to show you girls the events in sequence (ie. wedding first, honeymoon second), I find I'm unable to do so as my official wedding photos is STILL a work-in-progress.
(The photographer promised it within this week. Sigh. But he does good work, so I'll be patient.)
Anyhoo, while we're all waiting for my wedding photos, I'll give you a whirlwind summary (with piccies) of my Greek honeymoon.
(Note: Picture heavy post)
The hubs and I flew in to Athens, and then we took a big ferry to Mykonos Island, and from there took a speedboat to Santorini Island. The weather was generally HOT (about 34 degrees), but thankfully it drops at night on the islands (to 18 degrees? less?), which I really liked. For anyone who's thinking of whether or not to visit Greece, it's definitely a great place for a relaxing holiday. Think sipping coffee by a roadside cafe and lots of sunset watching. If you're into super-shopping holidays, then give Greece a pass.
So, enjoy the piccies!
First stop- Athens
One can.not. visit Athens without going to the Parthenon.
We strolled down the streets in Monastiraki where there were plenty of restaurants and souvenir shops.
The Greeks have a thing for shoes. Seriously. About five out of 10 shops are shoe shops. I saw one in here which I liked, and it cost €65. Back on the rack it went!
A view of the Parthenon and the sprawling city of Athens from Lycabettus Hill at sunset. It was beautiful. Too bad I didn't have a DSLR camera with me. Boo.
Next stop- Mykonos: Party town!!!
Me posing somewhere near the hotel at Aghios Ioannis on Mykonos Island.
A street in Mykonos town. A very pretty and quaint place.
Taken from Little Venice in Mykonos town. People having a cuppa (or a moussaka) while the waves crash in, with a view of the windmills.
Final stop - Santorini Island: Land of the Caldera
A church with white-washed walls and blue domes, the typical architecture of the Cyclades islands.
Views of the caldera from Fira and Oia in Santorini. Just breathtaking. The water and sky are both just so blue!
The hubs and I on our sunset tour on a sailboat. With a view of the sunset as in the first photo. Lovely.
Next post - where to shop for makeup in Greece and honeymoon hauls! So stay tuned! =D
