Greece

Category: Greece

Located in the Aegean and Ionian Seas, Greece boasts a mix of amazing historical monuments like the Acropolis in Athens to gorgeous beaches found on the mainland as well as on islands like Santorini, Milos and Koufonisia.

With distinctive crisp white buildings dotted on the cliffside, and the odd blue dome here and there, you’ll know you’re really in Greece.  I spent my first solo travel trip on Santorini and since then the country has a place in my heart. Make sure it’s on your bucket list.
