Summer is finally here in Greece and our house is full of visitors getting away from Athens for their vacation, so we are getting away from home to have our own vacation too!
Photos from our spending time in home in the lockdown.
Aside from the long list of things you can do inside the airport, they also offer Free Singapore Tours: Jewel, City sights and Heritage tours. With these, they are able to showcase the country and show what it has to offer. This is a very good teaser and maybe this can also entice transiting passengers that maybe next time, they come not only for a layover but for more days of exploration as well.
Most of our road trips and adventures are in Greece because this is where we live and there are just lots of places we haven't visited and explored yet. But this time, we are going to try and get a glimpse of Kyrie's country, the Philippines!
Arachova is a mountain village that is located in the foot of Mt. Parnassos. This is a favorite winter destination for celebrities, ski and snow board lovers in Greece or if you just want to have a dreamy "traditional" village atmosphere with amazing restaurants and bars to pair it with.
We are so stoked to have already started our adventures this year, hooray!
It was rainy right before and after the new year so we patiently waited and once the weather cleared up, we were ready to be on the road again. The photos above is what we were seeing throughout the trip, it's our "movie" for hours of driving to the snowy mountains.
Looking back on our experiences in 2019. Closing the past decade full of experiences, and we are looking forward to more adventures and more of life.
Since we're already in northern Greece at the end of August, (click to read our adventure in Tzoumerka ), and just about 3 hours to cross to Albania, we decided to visit Ksamil and Sarande!
Sarande and Ksamil were very beautiful! There are tourists from all over Europe! I think this is a good summer destination option. Unfortunately, the only airport in Albania is in Tirana. Crossing the border with the car was simply the best way for us. The road infrastructure is not the best but the beautiful beaches and the clear water pays off the long drive.
Tzoumerka is a lesser known destination even for locals. This might just be the Greeks' best kept secret! Stone mansions, cobblestone streets, scenic vistas and quaint squares with Greeks drinking their fave coffee! Every corner of this place is instagrammable. This place is also a paradise for outdoor activities : trekking, hiking, canyoning, rafting and even just by looking what is around you.
The Lake below is called "Limni Kremaston" and it was in our way to Tzoumerka
Cheap tickets is one of the key parts of how we travel, finding them requires patience and a lot of flexibility. --At the time that we are writing this blog, there was another 1€ ticket sale!!-- Keep up to date with this promotions and sign up in our newsletter.
Most of our flights (Rhodes, Santorini, Mykonos, etc..) are the same price!
Summer is here so we packed all our camping gear and got ready for the road!
This is the first time that we are bringing anyone with us for such a long trip. This is also Ntak’s first time in a road trip and camping trip: Challenge accepted!
Crete is a destination worth a visit. From amazing beaches of Matala and Hersonissos, to Cretan cuisine and to ancient Faistos civilization , you can see and experience all of these and more when you visit Crete! We explore the highlights in 12 days. Here is a short summary of our Crete trip:
We're back in Santorini for 2019! We spent 2 days last December 2018, this time around we spent 7 whole days just exploring the island.
There are still not a lot of tourists in the island but there is already a lot of traffic from locals working/will work in Santorini. We saw a lot of people building and renovating villas, businesses are hiring staff, there is a job opportunity everywhere you see. It's very nice to see that Santorini, being the ultimate summer destination, is not only good for the tourists but it's also beneficial to the locals.
This is also a great opportunity of combining work and travel ;)
We had a lot of sunny days - more time for activities - and a surprise Catamaran tour of Santorini!
(Fun Fact: Santorini is the first destination we went twice to!)
Travel smart and cheap
Traveling the world smart and cheap is not as hard as you might think. We listed our favorite ways to travel smart and cheap so you can do it too!
Most of the hard work come from Kyrie's hand, Giorgos is the face on the photos, it's his "creative" shots and he's the master of the ceremony :) Live Your Myth
