Santorini & Mykonos Travel Diaries

travel, santorini, mykonos, greece, vacation, travel blogger, holiday

I’ve traveled a reasonable amount this year and it’s mostly been quite last minute / down to chance. I started the year in the mountains in the Val Thorens ski resort in France, detoured down to Sweden for a quick work trip, then found myself in Vienna as Levi was doing a speech there. In March, I headed to Madrid for a birthday trip and then when May rolled around, I found myself in Turin, Italy for a last minute family event. However – whilst most of my trips have been spontaneous, my trip to Greece most definitely wasn’t. I’ve wanted to go to Mykonos for a while now (as the Kardashians went there), but Levi has wanted to go to Santorini (since Rick Ross did a song about it) – so we met in the middle and decided we would Greek Island hop this summer. Ladies & gentlemen – the annual summer “baecation”.

Birthday Trip to Madrid: a 3 Day Itinerary

I’m not really a big birthday person – unless it’s a quite “monumental” year such as 18, 21, 25, I rarely even have the energy to plan up a big celebration (although always feel the pressure to celebrate from my friends!) This year, for the first time, I decided to spend my birthday abroad after Levi suggested we hit Madrid during Christmas time. Well – kind of… I spent my actual birthday in the office (something I’ll probably refrain from doing again – although my team were lovely enough to buy me a birthday cake, working through your birthday is not ideal). However, the weekend following my birthday, Levi and I packed our suitcases to jet to Madrid for a city break.
