People keep asking me to describe how great my trip to Greece was, and I really don’t even know how to explain it. The color of the water, the taste of the food, the amount of belly laughs with my travel friends. It’s hard to describe.

We got to Páros and I had no expectations about this town because I didn’t know much about it. It’s one of those towns that isn’t so packed with tourists, but more locals. It is more of a town where people that live in Athens head to vacation during the summers. When we walked into the cafe’s here, we struggled with the language barriers more than anywhere else, but in my opinion that makes it more fun. What a beautiful beachside city, the first time we walked into town, the sun was setting and the boats lined the shore, and I knew I was going to like it here. We danced the night away with our big group and then a few of us wandered off on our own to find some more local bars. We found one called the Pirate Bar and we sat outside with our fancy cocktails and felt like we belonged there.

Our next destination was Mykonos, which we were already informed would be one giant party. That didn’t even prepare us for the craziness of our resort. It had a bar open basically 24/7 with a DJ the entire time and tables to dance on and frozen drinks to pass around. I’m not the club kind of girl, so my favorite part was taking a bus into the city of Mykonos and walking around and shopping. The restaurants were amazing – more gyros everywhere – and the streets were winding and it was nicknamed “Little Venice” which definitely made sense to me after visiting Venice last year. I got beautiful jewelry in Mykonos and even a tattoo to remember my time there. Until we meet again, Greece, I’ll be dreaming of you.

Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.
