If you have followed along the Hitched by Heather and Simply Hitched Instagram account for a while, you would have noticed that every member of our team has a very large travel bug! Collectively, we have toured the world and have taken some fabulous photos and must have tips for each location. We are sharing all of those with you now if you are in search for the perfect honeymoon, anniversary or just a much needed get away!
Today, we are starting off with our newest Hitched member, Christen!! She went island hopped around Greece for her honeymoon and we are so happy she did! Greece is very high on my bucket list and she takes you to all the hot spots!
I’m Christen Supplee and I’m an assistant planner for Hitched by Heather’s Simply Hitched team. My husband and I traveled to Greece for 2 weeks on our honeymoon and it was a trip of a LIFETIME!
Where you traveled: Greece! Athens->Santorini->Paros->Mykonos
When: late September-early October 2018
Attire: Summer/beach wear. Bright colors. Lots of blue so you can blend in 😊
Honeymoon Rating (From 1-10):
Where you stayed:
Athens = Airbnb apartment walking distance to Acropolis
Santorini = Airbnb in Ammoudi Bay and hotel in Messaria near Fira (capital) – Altera Pars Suites
Paros = Airbnb in Naoussa, steps from the beach and town
Mykonos = hotel – Ostraco Suites
Favorite Part: If I have to pick one, island hoping was our favorite part. Getting to see so many beautiful places on one trip and super easy to take a ferry from island to island. That, or the endless amounts of tzatziki 😍
Best Food: I’ll give two places ….
Santorini = simple & cheap but the best gyros in the world are at Pito’s in Santorini!
Mykonos = Kiki’s Tavern. It’s off the beaten path and there’s usually a 2 hour wait for a table but they give you free rose and water while you wait. Plus, the food is unreal.
What you wish you knew before you went: People talk about how much you’ll be walking and climb in Santorini, but they TRULY mean it. There should be no heels packed for that island/part of your trip let alone the whole time you’re in Greece.
