I could have sworn I posted the link to our honeymoon pictures in Greece earlier, but apparently I did not. Sorry about the gaping oversight on that one.
As mentioned before, we registered for our honeymoon through AAA (I can’t recommend this idea enough, especially if you don’t really need much in the way of wedding gifts.)
Also as mentioned before, we went Greek island hopping, which is a specific type of tour offered through Contiki. Again, we highly, highly recommend Contiki tours and will be using them again when we do our next trip abroad.
Our honeymoon was a perfect blend of relaxation, culture, history, and nightlife. Our tour guide, Ed, was the best. Want a recommendation on the best place to grab pizza? Ask Ed. Want to know more about the different invasions of Greece? Ask Ed. Want to see someone bong a beer through a snorkel? Ask Ed. (Sadly, we didn’t get a picture of this!) He also has some stellar jokes.
Even better were all the people we met on our honeymoon. Aussies, Canadians and Kiwis, oh my! Everyone was really friendly and fun. Contiki specializes in tours for people 18 to 35, so everyone was around our age. (However, we were the only couple, which could have been awkward but wasn’t the least bit at all.)
Trip highlights include riding donkeys up a mountain, boarding a pirate ship and sailing to a deserted beach, and, of course, seeing the ancient ruins in Greece. The hotel we stayed at in Athens, The Plaka, had a roof-top bar that looked directly at the Parthenon. At night, it’s light up and is one of the most beautiful constructions I’ve ever seen. That and all of the adventures we had along the trip made going on this incredible honeymoon one of the best goals I’ve ever achieved.
