Showers

It’s hard for me to describe in words just how lucky we are to live in America where showers function the way they do. Showers are no doubt my favorite part of the day. Some days I take two or three and they all last at least 15 minutes. It’s time to chill out, sing, dance, think, whatever. In Europe it is totally the opposite.

When planning for any trip, the absolute last thing that you want to think about is what if something happens to your loved ones while you are gone. Unfortunately however, life doesn’t always work out the way that we hope so the best thing to do is be prepared (mentally & physically) for every possible situation and hope for the best.

When trying to decide which Greek islands that we wanted to visit, we originally planned to go to Mykonos after Naxos. Unfortunately, Mykonos isn’t exactly “budget friendly” and we couldn’t find a single Airbnb on the island under $50 a night (most were well above $100!). So, we needed a backup plan.

Leaving Santorini was hard. I legitimately almost cried. The only thing that held me together was knowing that we had another week of Greek Islands to look forward to. (Tough life, I know).

The majority of this post is going to be pictures, because explaining Santorini (and all of Greece for that matter), is best done through visuals rather than words, but I’m going to start this post by just saying, Holy. Shit.

First off, apologies for the recent lack of postings. The last month we have been having a lot of fun traveling and as a result, the blog has been a little neglected. A lot of content is coming your way soon!

Four days in Malta

To be honest, we didn’t know what to expect when we visited Malta. Hell, we barely even knew where it was on the map. (It’s a very tiny island below Sicily and above Africa, in case you’re wondering). But I am SO happy that we made the spontaneous decision to go there. It will go down as one of my favorite cities on the trip and it was the first time that I actually felt like we were on vacation.

5. Metro –

Now we’re getting into the list of modes of transportation that don’t necessarily suck. I’d put city metro systems right in the middle of the pack. To clarify: I’m defining ‘metro systems’ as inner-city public transportation systems (subway, buses, trams, etc.) They are typically convenient enough to get you around the city, but schedules have been confusing and the payment systems are nuts. For instance, in Sicily you have to go find a tobacco store to buy your bus ticket from and then go find the bus station. Whacky.

So far we have taken planes, trains, metro, buses, car rentals, taxis, ferries, four wheelers, bikes and walked around the cities we have visited. One thing that most people tend to agree with is that the act of traveling generally sucks and is the worst part of doing a long term trip like this. Going into this trip, Meghan and I really didn’t know what to expect in terms of transportation (which would be the most expensive, the most convenient,etc), so in this series I’m going to break it down by which modes of transportation suck the most and which ones sucked the least. Ranked 10 (suckiest) to 1 (least suckiest).
