41 Bucket List Things to Do in Greece in Summer || Girl vs Greece

I'm nearing the completion of my first week in Greece. Its been so incredibly lovely to be back to a place that is so familiar and yet so unknown. 

I've decided to show my Greece adventures in a weekly series. Each week, I'll post all my photos in the categories of 'people', 'places' and yet to be decided categories that I think are appropriate.
This past week of settling in has left me time for my thoughts to wander to things that I'm excited for and things that make me nervous. I'd like to overcome the things that make me nervous and make a contentious effort to seize all that Greece has to offer. What better way to do this than by creating a bucket list. Think of it as a shorter version of my 'Kicking the Bucket' page above.
This is the first post in the series that I'm calling 'Girl Vs Greece'. Here's also a sneak peak at some pictures I've taken from this trip already.
1. Go to the beach at least 5 days in a row
4. Watch a Greek movie
5. Document every summer outfit I wear
7. Get a serious tan
8. Feel like my Greek improved
10. Spend the whole day at the beach
11.  Get confident enough to speak Greek to strangers
12. Eat as many gyros at possible
13. Visit the acropolis (...again)
14. Go for a night walk on the beach
15. Be bikini-body confident
16. Make friends with a stranger
17. Say 'yes' to everything for a day
18. Bake summery cupcakes
19. Try out every nail polish colour in my collection
21. Sit on a roof
22. Pull an all-nighter
23. Go to a Greek church for a service
24. Take a walking tour of Athens
25. Eat watermelon
26. Drive a car
27. Visit at least 10 new places I've never been to
30. Eat corn from a street stall
31. Take a photo by a harbour, at night
32. Rock a summer Instagram theme
33. Try ouzo
34. Have my fortune read from a Greek coffee
35. Have a meal right by the ocean
36. Try Greek foods I've never tried before
37. Find a starfish
38. Go beach hopping
39. Speak Greek the whole day. No English allowed
41. Eat calamari and octopus

    1. I need to pick a good day to go without English. It needs to be a day when I'm out and about.

      I'll let you know how it goes!

  13. It's funny how I just read your flight-essentials post, before you aeroplane-d to Greece and there you are, in Greece for a week now? Whenever I create my own bucket-list for the Summer Holidays, I only ever complete five tasks out of the forty I've listed. I hope you have better success at achieving your targets and enjoy you time in Greece!

  16. Oh for sure eat as many gyros as you can, when I was in Athens I tried to stay away from Souvlaki Row and I ended up finding a really good more traditional gyros place not too far from there. A walking tour of Athens is a really good idea too, and trying some traditional loukoumades :)

    1. I haven't heard of Souvlaki Row...so I'm taking that as a good sign!
      YES! I forgot to put loukoumades on the list and i'm yet to eat some but that's a really good one!
      A walking tour of Athens also sounds like a lot of fun!

      Thanks Julia!
