Greece

Ever visited Meteora in Greece? This place was on my photography bucket list for quite some time. After exploring Athens and its historical sights, I hired a car and drove in 4,5 hours from Athens to the stunning rock formations and monasteries of Meteora. If you haven’t been there, I would definitely recommend to add Meteora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to your travel bucket list.

Santorini is one of those immense popular travel destinations in Greece. This picturesque island, famous for its stunning sunsets, the whitewashed houses and the blue-domed churches normally relies for 90% of its income on tourism. The impact of the COVID-19 lockdown has been dramatic for Santorini, but for me as a traveler, I enjoyed a more quiet, peaceful and laid-back Santorini.

 

Greece is one of the major travel destinations in Europe. Most people travel to the Greek Islands but the historic city of Athens is also one of the best places to visit in Greece. During COVID-19 I took my chance to visit Athens for four nights to admire Athens ancient treasures and explore Europe's oldest capital city!

I totally understand people were laughing when I told them I was exhausted from visiting the best luxury resorts in Maldives. But as you have probably read in my last week’s adventures I was still so lost that I forgot my MacBook when I left for my Greece trip to Lesbos Island.

 

On invitation of Tourism Greece I was able to travel to Lesbos Island, which was my first time traveling to this magical 'island-hopping-heaven' country. Greece was listed as country number 81 when I visited the first time. In December 2019 I returned to Greece after my inaugural cruise of Sky Princess. For you I researched again the prices for a Greece sim card to keep this article about buying a sim card for Greece up to date.

In the last weeks of the summer season I visited one of the most popular Northern Aegean Islands: Lesbos, Greece. Soaking up the last rays of summer sun when the rest of Europe was getting cold. This peaceful island was putting a summer smile on my face at the end of Autumn. Lebos is a great place to travel in Greece in October. In this blog you can read how I explored the island by car and checked out all the Lesbos tourism spots for you.
