Travel Snapshots: Greece

Travel Snapshots: Greece
2015 was a great year of travelling for the Chictales team. We got to go to many great countries and explore different parts of the world we hadn’t been to before. Which is why we thought we’d do a series of Snapshot posts, some of our most favourite memories and images that evoke the essence of those journeys.

Greece had always been a dream destination of mine for as long as I can remember. As a little girl who loved to daydream and read, my dad gifted me an encyclopedia of Greek mythology and tales, detailing the complete stories of each Greek Gods and Goddessses, from Zeus to Dionysus, Aphrodite (my personal favourite) and more. These tales lifted me to a whole new world of culture and history, I vowed one day that I would make it to the land of these Gods.

Towards beginning of 2015, Rich and I started discussing what we wanted to do for our one year Anniversary and my birthday. Naturally, visiting Greece was the first thing that popped in my head. We started doing research and decided to focus on Athens and Santorini. All in all I can honestly say that this was one of the best trips of my life. Here are our snapshots, hope you enjoy!

Getting in and out of the beach was an adventure in it self.
