Europe Greece Honeymoon

I’m Getting Married and We’re Honeymooning In Greece!

By on August 1, 2016

As you would have discovered from my most recent post on my incredibly romantic Sydney proposal, you would know that I will be getting married on the 28th August 2016! How exciting!

Leading up to our wedding, my fiancee and I have been asked a multitude of questions such as, “when’s the wedding?”, “where are you having the reception?” and “where are you going to live?”, but the bubbling question everyone wants to ask the bride and groom is…

Where are you going on your honeymoon?

We are happy to announce that we will be going to Greece for our honeymoon for three weeks! Unfortunately it will only be the one country and for a short time. We would have loved to plan a honeymoon for a little while longer and explore more of Europe, but alas there is real life to get back to here in Sydney!

Sydney is pretty gorgeous hey?

I am pretty excited to share with you where we will be travelling to in Greece. For me this will be my third trip to Greece in three years, and with Greece being my number one country that I love apart from Australia, I am ecstatic to be returning yet again, and this time with my new husband!

Athens

We will be travelling from Sydney, via Dubai to Athens, where we will be spending two days exploring! This will be my third visit to Athens and a first for Jonathan. I am very excited to be showing him around a city that I really love, which has great historical significance and has some of the best Greek food on offer!

Here are some photos from my most recent trip to Athens:

Santorini

We are also very excited to be travelling to Santorini from Athens, and we have booked the most BEAUTIFUL, SPECTACULAR and BREATHTAKING airbnb apartment in the town of Oia (you know, the one with the picture perfect postcard cliff views and the famous sunset?). We will be staying in Oia for five full days to explore, relax and eat way too much Greek food as we unwind from our wedding day! Be sure to check out my Instagram account @theworldasbecseesit for photos of what our Airbnb apartment looks like!

Here are some stunning photos from Oia, Santorini from my most recent trip!

Zakynthos

For the first time, Jonathan and I are too excited to be exploring some of the Ionian Greek Islands on the other side of the mainland! We are flying from Santorini via Athens into Zante, and spending a four full days exploring all around the island with our rental car!

We are planning to visit the famous Navagio beach (also known as Shipwreck beach) and the blue caves in Zakynthos and we could not be more thrilled! Just looking at these photos by thewelltravelledman.com has me all inspired!

Kefalonia

Another Ionian island a short ferry ride away from Zakynthos is the island of Kefalonia! We will be staying in the main city of Argostoli in an airbnb apartment where we will be exploring the island for four full days by car.

We are planning to visit the famous Myrtos beach and will definitely be relaxing on many other beautiful beaches around the island during our stay.

We will be flying back to Athens to explore a little more and to also unwind and relax before our long flight back to Sydney via Dubai.
