I finally had the chance to come along on a trip on our sailboat in Greece this summer. The last few summers have been busy – and they’ve been super short due to the Australian uni system. But now that I’m done with my Bachelor’s, I don’t think I’ve ever had this much time on my hands to both work and travel during the summer.
We didn’t visit heaps of different places this year, but we were lucky to find a spot on Hydra, an island with a tiny harbour south of Athens. It’s a popular place with a lovely atmosphere, and we decided to stay here a few nights as they were having a festival on the weekend with lots of fireworks. There’s even just one car on this island – the garbage truck.
We visited Poros and Aegina as well, and stopped for a swim and some lunch in different beautiful bays. My sister and I explored the Greek architecture and beautiful views, and also met a bunch of cats. It was absolutely lovely being back, but when the temperature hits 40 degrees celsius you’re kind of ready to go home to Norway after the 11 days we spent down south.
Photos are shot on both my Nikon D810 and iPhone 6s. I don’t update my blog as much as I’d hoped, but you can follow me on Instagram for more frequent updates.
