Trips to the Greek Isles!

The past two weekends have been fun-filled outings to different islands in Greece. For our 4th of July holiday, a group of girls and I went to Mykonos. Just a little over six hours away, we took a ferry for 35 euros. IMG_7795 IMG_7798

After dropping  off our stuff at our beautiful Paradise View Hotel, we took a 2 minute walk to Paradise Beach, where we spent all day enjoying the warm, sunny weather and beautiful blue waters!

This weekend, our entire Summer Session 2 group went to Hydra Island. The waters were unbelievable, ombréd from a beautiful shallow ocean green to turquoise into deep royal blue.

Soaking in the beauty of Greece during walks along the beach by myself has truly been what I have loved the most about this trip. I have so much time for self discovery and a better sense of the world we live in. No matter where you decide to go abroad, make sure you take some alone time, and enjoy the world and your own thoughts!
