Hurrah, it’s summertime again! We finally get to go on a vacation without pretending we like skiing and snow! I mean, I’m pretty fond of mulled wine, but that’s pretty much where that story ends. And if you’re looking for a cheap place to go on a relaxing holiday, look no further than Greece. The country went bankrupt a few years back, so it’s been a pretty cheap holiday destination ever since. And it actually is a truly wonderful country, so there’s no reason not to go there.
Let’s take a look at some amazing Greek islands you could visit sometime in the next year. Well, they’ll be there longer than a year, but why wait longer? “Yolo”, as the kids say.
If you know middle-aged people that go on those sunbathing holidays, you’ve heard of this one. Luckily, there’s a lot more to do in Mykonos than just get a tan and/or sunburn, depending on your complexion. It’s actually a pretty charming island! Also, it’s here that Zeus fought the Titans.
Rhodes is pretty much what you expect when people say “Greek island”. It has a buzzing nightlife, amazing beaches, amazing nature, a near-lethal amount of sunlight, and relics of ancient Greece.
This is the third largest island in the Ionian Sea. It’s such a wonderfully colorful island, which explains why it was the home of many poets. So inspiring.
It sounds Italian, but it’s not! The official Greek name is Thira, but for some reason it’s called Santorini. This island is definitely one of the most romantic destinations in the world.
