Greece via Instagram

I just got back from a whirlwind 11 days in Greece, and I think it's safe to say that I'm obsessed with this beautiful country. It hasn't even been 48 hours and I'm already dying to go back! Between exploring gritty but charismatic Athens, watching the Mediterranean glisten in Crete, and witnessing the breathtaking magic of Santorini - it was impossible not to fall in love with Greece. And as it just so happens, these three places happen to be ridiculously photogenic. Hence, I may have gone a little Instagram crazy...

Words cannot even begin to describe my obsession with Greek food. I already miss the heavenly salads, eggplant, yogurt with honey, and fresh tzatziki sauce!
The Venetian Harbor in Chania, Crete
One of my favorite parts of Greece was making friends with cats everywhere we went
I couldn't have asked for a better travel buddy. Love ya Jen!
Elafonisi Beach in Crete. Can you believe those turquoise waters?!
Lounging poolside in Oía, Santorini
What kind of blogger would I be if I didn't color-coordinate with the buildings...?
Exploring Fira, Santorini
We enjoyed a delicious sunset dinner thanks to Canaves Oia Hotel & Suites
Selfies fo' dayz.
Okay, you can take me back to Santorini now.

I hope these will suffice for now, seeing as it's going to take me a while to edit all of the pictures I took (2,019 to be exact... I have a problem). And feel free to follow along on Instagram @courtneylikkel!

    1. The waters were UNREAL! Especially since I've been living in landlocked Madrid all year and was having some serious ocean withdrawals :)
