Greece was everything I had imagined. It was as beautiful as every picture I saw on Pinterest when doing my research on these wonderful islands. I have to admit that Greece is now my most favorite place to be in the world! I honestly became very aware of who I am as a woman and Santorini took me to a mind altering state which only underscored what it is I REALLY want in my life.
The islands of Greece are a rugged type of beauty, full of rocky cliffs, breath-taking sights, and winding roads and paths. The people are friendly, the food is delicious, and the lifestyle on the islands is different than anything I have yet experienced. As a brown girl, I was made to feel very welcome as I suspect they know the plight of brown girls here in the USA. We are special there. We get stares admiring our beauty, our exoticness. The moment you smile back, like opening your arms, the Greeks become your best friend!
Santorini and Mykonos
So I traveled with my younger beautiful cousin to these beautiful islands to both Santorini and Mykonos, and I will state right off the cuff that the islands are distinct in many ways but equally as beautiful. They are both very different in their vibes, culture, and lifestyle.
