A trip to Greece is incomplete without a visit to the Greek Islands of the Cyclades.
I'm typically a city-sort of person. I love walking in bustling areas, taking in the energy of the people, the buildings, and (of course!) the food. I enjoyed Athens a lot. It was rich with history, full of culture, and had great food.
Having said that, I can see why most people flock to the islands when they visit Greece. The scenery alone is absolutely phenomenal. Furthermore, after a few days in Athens (which can start to feel crowded, polluted, and overwhelming), the Greek isles are a much needed oasis from the craziness of it all.
For this trip, due to limited time, I only visited one island - Santorini.
Despite the short duration of my trip, I absolute will never forget this magical place.
