My Time in Greece



This past September, I had the opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful countries I have ever seen - Greece. The two-week journey commenced in Athens, and continued to four different islands: Mykonos, Paros, Santorini, and Crete. The combination of the food, the people, the beaches, and the good vibes was utterly perfect in every way. Although I enjoyed certain towns more than the others, each island has its own distinct characteristics that make it as captivating as it truly is. Since pictures are worth a thousand words, I'll let these do the rest of the talking.
