Skopelos

Whenever I thought of Greece, I thought of Santorini because I wanted to see all the pretty white houses and everything that was in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. It's been on my bucket list forever, and when we started planning our Greece trip, I thought I'd be able to cross it off. Well, it's still on my list because we went to Skopelos instead. But I still loved it. As long as I have water, beaches, and my honey, I'll be content. The world has many places to explore. Here are some photos from our trip!

I inherited my grandmother's motion sickness, so I'm never a fan of ferry rides. Sitting inside got me so sick that as I stumbled out into the fresh air, I thought I might tip over the railings. Alas, the fresh air did me good. See? Not everything about travel is glamourous.

Very cool though: we saw dolphins swimming alongside the ferry. I didn't even bother taking a picture because I was enjoying it far too much. I had never seen them in the wild before.

I was still happy to see white buildings once we reached our destination and could have explored for hours more!

I mean, how cute are these window sills?!? I could have spent more hours walking through these streets!

I'm pretty certain that I photographed every cat I saw in Greece, but I'm sparing you from most of those pictures - be glad.

I think I was most impressed by how clean Greece was in general! I definitely was not expecting that. We had a fantastic time!
