OH HI THERE!!
Missed me?! Well I am officially back home in Kocani after a long two weeks of traveling! Obviously, a lot has happened in my two week vacation, but instead of writing down everything I did, everyone I met, and everything I ate, I suppose I'll just show you a few of my favorite highlights of the trip through photos. Ready??
Well, our first stop was Thessaloniki, Greece. We couch surfed with an AMAZING host, who really showed us the best food and nightlife!
Thessaloniki has a million hidden streets and alleyways that are full of great unique bars with excellent happy hours!
Chad and I enjoying our SECOND meal at this place, because the food was just soooooo good!!
After leaving Thessaloniki, we caught an early morning flight to Zakynthos, Greece. The island was beautiful and full of activites!!
We spent three days exploring the island, and we found a dozen hidden beaches just like this one! The water was often pretty cold, but we were troopers and took advantage of every opportunity!
This was the shipwreck cove. Photos won't do this place justice.
Yes, this is a boat bar, and yes we spent our day here.
Our next destination was Athens, Greece. We were only there for a day, and I'd have to say it was our least favorite place to visit. We did see the typical touristy stuff, which was excellent, but we found the city to be too overwhelming and dirty. Regardless, we still had a great time!!
Me in Athens!!
Athens is HUGE!!!!!
From there, we went to my favorite place: CORFU!! Corfu is another little island off the coast of Greece. It is mountainous with a million little beaches....it is the postcard of paradise.

The evenings were perfect
What we did every morning.
Compliments from our favorite place to eat, complete with the best staff!!
One of our new local friends owns this place, which is located in a village near where we were. We went there on our last night and had an EPIC meal!!
The next places we visited were Milan and Como, in Italy. Both were day trips, but we had an excellent host, Geri, who helped show us everything!!
This is Geri, our host!!
Third largest church in Europe.
Milan was gorgeous at night!!
Lake Como!! (George Clooney owns a villa here)
Another beautiful sight!!
Our final destination was Venice, Italy. I LOVED Venice!!
How can you not love Venice?!
Yes, this mask came home with me. It was hand-made. Did you know all the masks for the movie, Eyes Wide Shut were made here??
That's that....in PHOTOS!! I may give more of an update later, but for now, I am tired. I hope you all enjoyed the photos. : )
Not all those who wander are lost...
