Photographic Proof That Greece Has The Best Sunsets 

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! Stunning sunset views, whether you are in Athens or in Santorini, the views are simply unbelievable. When you experience something so simple, yet so mesmerizing it allow us to reflect on the things we take for granted. Think about it: for locals in Santorini, they watch the same spectacular sunset every day. Do you think they appreciate it? or simply ignore it? – Mariella Athens Mykonos Santorini About The Author Mariella Molestina Noboa The art of saying “Yes!” can take you far away. Many people pass on opportunities for many reasons, one of them being fear.

If you are constantly waiting for the right time to finally do something, like fulfill your life dream, you …

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 …

The Wonderful Beaches of Mykonos

From East to West and South to North, Mykonos has multiple beautiful beaches surrounding the island. We had an extra free day in Mykonos so we decided to to rent a car and explore all the wonderful beaches of Mykonos. Mykonos is the Ibiza of Greece. People go to party, especially during summertime! During this time of the year all the beaches are fully crowded with party people drinking day and night. This island is definitely a party animal magnet! The party stops in mid-September as we wave summer goodbye. The rest of the year involves sunny clear days and frozen cocktails while catching some rays in a cabana… Take a look at the most beautiful beaches in Mykonos: Kalafatis Beach Agios Stefanos Beach Ftelia Beach Agrari Beach Paradise Beach Super Paradise Beach Armenistis Lighthouse in Fanari

What To Eat In Greece: Cooking Class!

Enhance your culinary experience by ordering the most delicious and traditional Greek dishes. During my visit, I made sure I ordered a menu items from the traditional Greek cuisine menu section. Nothing quite like a happy belly after a long day of sightseeing! I learned that Greeks always welcome you to their home with something sweet accompanied with a drink and a big smile! This delicious treat pictured here is called Greek Delight. I am a horrible cook, I barely know how to pour cereal in my bowl without messing it up haha but recently I developed an interest for learning how to cook my own meals.  I was really excited to take a traditional Greek cuisine class! Cooking classes are great to learn in-depth about the Greek culture and their unique customs at home. If you have the opportunity to take a cooking session wherever you are in the world, do it! My experience at Teta’s home was amazing. What an amazing host! Every day Teta opens her lovely home to travelers around the …

Your trip to Greece is finally booked. Great! Now you need to figure it out where to stay. If you’re looking for great hotel accommodations in Greece, look no further than my recommendations below. Athens The Electra Palace Hotel is by far the best hotel in Athens, in my opinion. I liked this hotel because it was located in the center of the city, just a five minute walk from Plaka. There are several chain hotels such as Marriott and Hilton, but I chose to stay at the Electra Palace because it radiates Greek authenticity. 1 2 Pros: Breakfast Included Free Wi-Fi Laundry Service Fitness Center 24-hour in-room service dining   Contact Information:  epconcierge@electrahotels.gr  Cons: The staff was not very friendly.
