My Greek Trip Highlights || Girl vs Greece

This isn't going to be your regular travel post. As I mentioned in this post I hate travel posts. So, I'm going to find my own unique spin on them. I've done quite a bit since I first landed in Greece. I won't go into too much detail here, but I've got some highlights from an island I visited, called Crete, as well as some pictures taken from a village, which means I get to strike more things off my summer bucket list.
You know that saying 'A picture is worth a thousand words'? Well, I agree with it, just not right now. I've captioned some of the pictures to provide you with more insight into the story behind the shot.
The view to the right of this light bulb was absolutely incredible. I was right beside the sea. Albeit the sunset was an incredible shot, I thought this was pretty cool, too!

This sunset was one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Every surface, from glasses on the table to  reflections in windows glistened orange.

I am all for a good posing once in a while. As you can probably tell, that's what's happening here. 

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate the 'on point' co-ordination that's happening in this shot? The bag is from River Island.

I went out to a sea-side cafe a few weeks back. I saw this serendipitous set-up at a table next to me. Hoping that my neighbouring coffee drinkers wouldn't think I'm a creep, I snapped up these two shots  (excuse the pun).

This restaurant not only has the cutest interiors, but it just so happens to make the perfect 'interiors' for my stomach- food! They make the best gyros in town.

Exhibit A: Gyro from Zahoulis

Carpe Diem means "Seize the day" in Latin!

Waffle anyone?
Lucky for me, this delicious chocolate conception was accompanied by a view to die for. 

This may be my favourite photo yet! There's something about it that makes me fall involve with it each time i see it.

More posing... because why not?

The Three MusCATeers

I got this apricot coloured piece from River Island and I adore wearing it. It makes me feel confident and ready to take on the world.

This traditional bag was given to me by my Aunt in Greece. It's a piece made with love, in Crete.

This was definitely a different post for me. But, I feel that you're more caught up with my 'galavanting around Greece'.

Till next time-

  6. Aww no, gal, don't hate travel posts because this one you put together was fab :) I LOVE travel posts and could scroll through them for hours. But I do need some substance and advice too. I wouldn't say no to a cheeky little getaway to Greece. It's such a beautiful country and every island is unique in its own way.

    1. Thanks for the confidence booster, Nadia!
      Every island is definitely very much it's own. I love that there's SO much to see and do in Greece.- between the mainland and the islands.

  7. All of these pictures are absolutely gorgeous and have me itching for a beach vacation! Also, orange is DEFINITELY your color - you look amazing!

    1. I would have never considered orange to be my colour, but maybe it's something I should consider!
      A beach vacation sounds like a good idea to me...

      The jump suit was quite an impulsive buy- but one that I'm most definitely not regretting!

  12. That photo of the light-bulb is so cool and Crete looked amazing! Did you only holiday in Crete or did you visit other Greek cities as well? This look astounding! It makes me reflect back to my last holiday abroad...😥

    Ps: Apologies if the commentary is later on-I am beginning to slide back into my blogging habits as I only begun re-blogging last week.
