Currently, I’m headed to Athens, Greece for a week-long vacation! I’ve been talking about this day for so long it doesn’t seem real. Greece has been on my bucket list for a while and I’ve always said it’s my next stop in Europe to visit. I’ve been to about 8 countries in Europe – which I will update you guys on in a future post 😉 But I’ve always wanted to go to Greece. I’m such a classic blue and white + beach person, it just makes sense.
As some back story, my cousin, Stephanie, that lives in New Jersey, married a Greek man, Antoni, His whole family is from Greece, and his parents are the first generation that moved here. Most of his relatives still live in Greece, so they’ve been talking about going to visit for a while. When Stephanie and Antoni had their first baby, they decided a year later it was time to visit the relatives. Naturally, they invited the whole family, so we took them up on the opportunity.
I’ll be gone for almost 10 days, and we’ll be visiting Athens, Rhodes, and Karpathos. I’ll update you guys on where we stayed, what to do, and where to eat after I get back. But for now – I’ll show you guys what I packed. I will mention this was not an easy task – it took me about 3 hours and I tried on half of my closet. Not to mention – I thought I lost my passport, but another 4 hours later and I found it… yikes. Never think you know where it is kids – always get it out in a safe, reserved place a few weeks before you leave! Check out my go-to European travel outfits below!
