JOURNEY TO THE HOT SUN: GREECE

Quite a while ago my brother sat me down to discuss the places to which we want to travel to this summer! He told me about all of his already-decided plans, including his graduation trip to Greece! And, considering Greece has been on my traveling wish-list for what seems like forever, I asked him if I could go with! He responded by saying that he would be with all his friends but that I could come with as we don’t see each other enough! So, fast-forward a couple of months, and there I was, waking up super early to catch a 6:15 fight with my brother and his friends! After taking a flight to Mykonos and a three-hour ferry, we finally arrived on the magical, beautiful and utterly compelling island of Ios which is situated in the Aegean Sea!
.
Although the majority of my brother’s classmates were staying at hotels, my brother, his girlfriend and his closest friends rented a house instead! It was practically a gigantic villa that stood on a hill with a beautiful overflowing swimming pool, amazing right? The trip lasted six days and was incredibly fun! From eating gyros at fancy restaurants to taking Harry Potter shots, we had a great time!
.
During the day I simply stayed at the pool and tanned until my skin went brown! Other than that, I cooked meals for the five other people staying in the house and played board games! A couple of us also went diving one day and for some reason, we also decided to buy a 3kg pot of Nutella which we surprisingly almost finished! By the way, you would already know this if you followed me on Snapchat @tiffanyzimmy!!

Considering the island of Ios was extremely hot, my fashion looks were very casual and minimalistic while I stayed there! When I wasn’t in a swimsuit, I was almost definitely wearing jean shorts, Adidas sneakers and a basic Tee.
.

On the last day of our trip, the owners of the villa gave us a very kind, Greek goodbye by preparing a warm meal for us which was, as you can imagine, delicious! They made pasta lasagna and a fresh Greek salad! Although I have mentioned to you a couple of times that I am in fact a vegetarian, I do eat meat on the rare event… After the amazing meal, we took a 40-minute ferry to Santorini and then flew back to my hometown, Geneva!
.
Overall, Greece was fantastic and I loved staying there! It lived up to and exceeded all my expectations and was truly welcoming to foreigners like myself! Although I wish we would have spent more time in Mykonos, Ios was still so much fun!
Stay tuned and check my website frequently for upcoming posts – there should be one about the best restaurants in Ios very, very soon!
LOVE,
