Life is full of beauty, is up to us to find it… I feel so peaceful every time I look at the pictures I took in Greece. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a sunset this beautiful!

Riding a Donkey in Santorini

What a hilarious experience! It’s going to get good. Here’s my story:   I always heard that Santorini had the option of riding a donkey like local greeks did back in the day. You know before motorcycles and other motorized vehicles took over the world? Anyways, I never actually considered it but once I was there I said: “Oh what the hell! Let’s just go.”   I was convinced it was going to be a fun experience, so riding a donkey it is! We asked for directions and the souvenir store lady told us: “Keep walking ahead, you’ll start to smell them!”   Smell them? I didn’t understand at first. “Thank you so much!” I replied. We kept walking and out of the sudden we start to smell this disgusting (yet so weird) smell. “Omg please don’t tell me that’s how the Donkey’s smell?” I thought.   Of course they smelled disgusting. There are at least 60 donkeys just waiting in line eating and pooping everywhere… It was funny! “Let’s just do it. We are …

What To See & Do in Mykonos

Grey, blue and white.. the three colors of Mykonos. Let’s take a closer look at the wonderful paradise that Mykonos is all about! This small island has more to offer than any major city in the world. In terms of quantity, maybe not. But Mykonos is all about unique sights of nature and architecture with a relaxation feel. I spent four days in Mykonos but I wish I could stay there for at least a week. Although touristy activities are limited in the island, Mykonos offers the perfect spot for an afternoon to read your favorite book while listening to the waves of the ocean and the birds singing nearby. Add some cocktails to that equation and boom! What’s not to love? Here’s a list of things you must see & do: 1) Get lost in Old Mykonos! 2) Watch the sunset from Little Venice 3) Take a picture in Mykonos' smallest street! See if you can fit through. (I did haha)  4) Spot "Petros", Mykonos' only pelican! Isn’t he adorable? Locals always make sure …

Santorini in 30 Epic Pictures

What can I say about Santorini? When a place is this beautiful, just take a deep breath and take a moment to realize that you are about to discover one of the most beautiful places in the world. As soon as I got off the ferry, I looked up towards the sky and couldn’t believe how tall the rocks were. Did you know Santorini was built on top of the island’s volcanic rock? Fira and Oia are Santorini’s main towns you must visit. Both towns are just breathtaking! My hotel was located in the heart of Fira, but I wish I stayed in Oia at least one night to experience what it’s like to live in one of Santorini’s traditional houses. Each town has it’s own architectural gem! A similar taste but different at the same time. The construction of the houses comes from the same idea, but built differently. The golden hour is something you don’t want to miss. If you can, admire the sunset every day. The view is just breathtaking! I’ve never …
