Just as soon as our wedding date was set early in 2017, we set out to plan the perfect honeymoon. Nothing was outside consideration. Within the first few discussions, we were able to successfully narrow down our focus to beach locations. We share an uncanny love for the sea and swiftly ruled out the hills.
The first location that popped into our minds was the Maldives. After a quick research on flight fares, hotels, and activities, however, we felt the need to keep looking. To be honest, Maldives is one of the most expensive tourist destinations. You’ll have no trouble finding hotels in every range, but after some light reading, I found that these hotels can be risky/shady. Also, they’re located away from the sea and further inland. I mean, what’s the point of going to the Maldives, if you’re not going to stay in the luxurious water villas every Maldives-tourist seems to be bragging about!
On a different note, I’d always been fascinated by Greek culture and mythology. I was a travel noob, however, and completely unaware of Greece‘s breathtaking islands. Around the same time, one of our cousins had just come back from a Greece trip. The pictures were, of course, mesmerizing and we knew we just HAD to go here!
I’m a Research Analyst by profession, and I took to researching about Greece like a moth to a flame. It became my favorite pastime; by the time we were ready to leave for Greece, I felt I knew our destinations – Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini – inside out!
My blog posts will talk in (a lot) more detail about our trip – where we went, how we decided on these places, how we commuted from one place to the other, where we ate, WHAT we ate, and of course, how much it all cost us!
Stay tuned 🙂
