In September 2019, me and J will embark on our first Round The World trip together. Yes, it’s a long way away, but it means we are able to save up more as J is in his last year of uni and only working part time, and I don’t have the best wage, but I don’t mind as I love my job! We also wanted to take longer to save so we could be a little more comfortable as we travel. We are by no means going to splash out much, we are still wanting to travel on a budget, but it gives us a little more freedom to go with a the flow! So, here is our Greece itinerary!
Travel Plans for Greece
A little bit of an odd one, but our flights that we have booked through STA Travel start from Greece. We haven’t booked any from the U.K. yet, as we are wanting to see if we have any extra pennies to do a little bit of Eurpoe first. I figured starting with our flight from Athens to Sri Lanka gives us more flexibility first! There are no particularly solid plans for Greece as of yet, other than we are flying in and out from Athens. We might be there 3 nights we might be there 3 weeks, in terms of itinerary for this country, it is super flexible. So if you have any ideas or recommendations let me know in the comments or by contacting me here!
I’d love to start in Santorini, I have been to one island in Greece before, Zakynthos, but my dream has always been to see the white and blue buildings and beautiful beaches of the island. I can’t wait to head to this island, I’ve got pretty high hopes from all the pictures and posts I’ve seen, I imagine some gram-worthy beaches and insta-pretty buildings.
After helping teach all about the Ancient Greeks at work, I am obsessed with going to see the Parthenon and the Acropolis. I am not normally one to go to touristy places, I try and avoid them usually (not that there is ANYTHING wrong with going to see the tourist hot-spots, I just really struggle with big crowds, especially big crowds in hot weather!). But I feel like I can’t go to Athens without seeing these amazing sites! Also, J is really into his history and archaeology, so I will definitely try my best to cope because I know he’ll want to see it!
That’s about it..
We don’t have hugely elaborate plans in Greece, and I’m sure my future Round the World Trip Itinerary posts for our other destinations will be more exciting! Please, if you have any recommendations for Greece what we can do and see (on a budget!) please let me know!
