Where can I connect with you?
What destination are you sharing?
The uber romantic, Santorini, Greece!
What made you choose this destination?
While Jarden was deployed, I had the mighty task of solo planning a two-week honeymoon. I tried to think of the most romantic international destination, and Santorini eventually won out as it kept popping up on my radar!
How did you get there?
Already a week into our honeymoon, we left Rome, Italy and jumped on a plane to Athens, Greece. After a couple nights there we took a ferry ride over to Santorini.
Where did you stay?
We stayed in a little bed and breakfast that I found on Trip Advisor, the Villa Rose located in Fira. It was our first bed and breakfast experience so we didn’t know what to expect, but it turned out to be one of the best accommodations we ever stayed at! It was super affordable, clean, and the owner, Maria made us feel like family.

Tips for packing for this destination?
Sunscreen! Light airy clothing, sunglasses, a few swimsuits, and your camera of course!

Final Tips for this Destination?
The people are so friendly and laid-back; the island lifestyle reminded us so much of Hawaii! Santorini is a beautiful island with gorgeous views, delicious food, and is such a great place to just chill and relax. Savor every moment!
