Our Honeymoon in the {Greek Islands}

I have been staggering the photo's from our honeymoon {new readers: we got married 3 weeks on my hubby's family dairy farm! Click here to see some of the professional pic's and click here to see the preparation!}, so as not to bore people with them (and to give me enough time to sort through all 3000 images!) and I am finally done!

 For our trip, we flew from Durban > Joburg, Joburg > Istanbul (piccies here!) Istabul >Athens (piccies here!) and finally Athens > Santorini where we spent 7 nights in an incredible old winery converted into a villa. The last part of our trip was a ferry ride to the island of Naxos where we spent our last few days before making the 40 hour trip back to Durban.

Here are a few highlights...enjoy! xxx

Very early flight to Santorini
After landing at Santorini Airport, we were given a quick tour of the Island by our wonderful host John Call 
Drinks on the beach!
Some Island scenery 
Wandering around the streets of our little town of Emporio
Greece is covered in cats, thought these ones were very cute!  


We spent the day in Fira, mainly to get a good view of the cliffs!



The joys of married life, washing!

Road trip around the second Island of our stay, Naxos. 



lovely evening swims before sundowners on the deck

And we {shared} the backpack responsibilities! That blue backpack is all we took for 2 weeks! I am mightily impressed with myself for being able to pack to light :)
If you want to see more photo's, you can pop over to the Facebook Page where more piccies will be going up of the trip :)

Greece, we loved every second of you!
