Don't we all wish we could spend more time in Europe? Although we've both visited many European countries, most of it was before this vlog! So now we're working our

way back to capture it all on camera for you!

The Greek Vlogs: Magical Meteora - Monasteries on the Clifftops

For many years Ryan had dreamed of visiting Meteora, Greece, a unique landscape of towering rock pillars topped with Greek Orthodox monasteries. On our first trip to Greece we made it happen! Explore this breathtaking place with us as we visit St. Nikolaos Anapafsas, Varlaam, and Roussanou.

The Greek Vlogs: Touring the Acropolis of Athens

We had one day in Athens so we spent the afternoon touring the historic Acropolis! We booked the "Skip the Line: Acropolis of Athens Afternoon Walking Tour" through Viator which was brilliant and we highly recommend it!

The Greek Vlogs: Exploring Mykonos Town

We sailed the Greek isles with Azamara Cruises and spent one day each on the incredible islands of Cyprus, Rhodes, Crete, Santorini, and Mykonos.

On Mykonos, our planned excursion was canceled due to high winds and we only had a few hours to walk the winding stone pathways of Mykonos Town. We run into Petros, one of the famous pelicans of the town, and venture to Paralia Megali Ammos beach before grabbing snacks at a local bakery.

The Greek Vlogs: Walking Oia and Fira in Santorini

We sailed the Greek isles with Azamara Cruises and spent one day each on the incredible islands of Cyprus, Rhodes, Crete, Santorini, and Mykonos.

On Santorini, we briefly visit the idyllic town of Oia before enjoying a wine tasting at Venetsanos Winery. Finally, we walk the streets of Fira, the capital of Santorini.

The Greek Vlogs: Knossos Palace & Heraklion

We sailed the Greek isles with Azamara Cruises and spent one day each on the incredible islands of Cyprus, Rhodes, Crete, Santorini, and Mykonos.

 

On Crete, we walk the grounds of Knossos Palace, believed to be the site of the mythological labyrinth designed for King Minos. The labyrinth's function was to hold the Minotaur, the monster eventually killed by the hero Theseus. Go back in time to learn about the history of the Palace and imagine how the ancient Minoan civilization lived and thrived here.

 

Then we stroll the streets of Heraklion, Crete's capital city, to visit the markets and Agios Titos, an impressive Orthodox church.

The Greek Vlogs: One Day on the Island of Rhodes

We sailed the Greek isles with Azamara Cruises and spent one day each on the incredible islands of Cyprus, Rhodes, Crete, Santorini, and Mykonos.

 

In Rhodes we walk the winding streets of Old Town, lounge at Elli Beach, and enjoy dinner at Yiannis, a traditional Greek taverna.

The Greek Vlogs: One Day in Paphos, Cyprus

We sailed the Greek isles with Azamara Cruises and spent one day each on the incredible islands of Cyprus, Rhodes, Crete, Santorini, and Mykonos.

 

Our day on Cyprus brought us to the city of Paphos, where we visited the birthplace of Aphrodite, walked within the Tombs of the Kings, and visited the House of Dionysus, where we gazed upon gorgeous ancient mosaics.
