GREECE BUDGET TRAVEL TIPS
1. GO DURING SHOULDER SEASON
July and August are Greece’s peak tourist months, but they are also when prices for hotels, tours and ferries are inflated.
2. GO OFF THE BEATEN PATH
Skip Mykonos, Santorini, Athens and other tourist-heavy spots within Greece, because they are pricey and overcrowded. Instead, hit the country’s lesser known and more affordable gems such as the islands of Paros and Naxos or a city like Thessaloniki.
3. PICK YOUR ACCOMMODATIONS WISELY AND BOOK AHEAD by 6 to 8 Months
4. LIMIT YOUR DESTINATIONS
Minimizing how many places you visit could save you several hundred dollars a person.

Have you ever taken a mud bath inside a volcano? This girl just did! At about 2,300 meters deep , it was like being inside of quick sand but no chance of sinking at all. To top it off, the locals have you sit on a lake beside the volcano and wash you off. What an awesome experience !
Tonight, we kicked off the holiday season by watching the lighting of the Christmas lights on the Champs-Élysées. Afterwards, we walked down to the Ferris wheel located near the entrance to Jardin des Tuileries. What a lovely night along this world-famous boulevard. What are you doing to kick off the holiday festivities in your area?
Don't mind me, I'm just contemplating 💭
The best thing about this sign is that it marks the beginning of the "Los Enamorados" (The Lovers) trail. I wonder how many troubled lovers have pondered their compatibility here?
🇲🇨 I thought the Monkey Forest would be too touristy and *whatever,* but it was actually worth it. 👍🏼 It's a large area so it doesn't feel overly crowded and there are things to explore - a temple, swing, senior monkeys, and more. You can also feed the monkeys! 🐒🐒🐒💡💡💡Tip: You can buy bananas at the entrance of Monkey Forest. 🍌This will lead to monkeys surrounding you and joining you for special photos. 🐵As you explore the forest, there may be local workers that provide feed so you have a monkey eating out of your hand, and then they lure the monkey off afterwards. 🐒 I found this helpful (especially if you're afraid) and you can always thank the locals with a donation. ☺️ #nofilterneeded#animalculture#cutemonkey#animalfun#balitime#baliindonesia#balianimals#balitraveler
I had a stuffed lamb as a kid and since then, it’s always been one of my favorite animals. So when we went to Iceland, I was excited to learn that there are more sheep than people on the island and you can find them EVERYwhere! We were driving around a curve and found this huge family of sheep right by a big beautiful cliff. I spent probably 45 minutes snapping photos and watching their cuteness. ♥
Native animals are one of the things I look forward to seeing most in other countries. Thailand, I’m coming for you one day!
My third time in London finally took me inside the Houses of Parliament. I'd only ever toured American government buildings before this, so I was fascinated by how things worked in the UK. I felt like taking notes on the tour because there's so much we can learn from how they do things over there. The architecture was also a dream -- I kept looking for Harry Potter. I didn't find him 😟 ••TELL ME: have you ever visited a government building?
It’s my birthday today & it’s the first time in my life (!!) that I won’t be seeing my mum on 22nd November! We have spoken on the phone today though & I’ll see her soon enough ☺️ Can’t feel too sad though as last week we finally went on a dream holiday we have talked about for years (which I’ll stop posting about some point... Maybe), and this time last week we were en route to see the Northern Lights ✨ Pretty special birthday celebrations really, very lucky to have shared it with my lovely mum 💗 here we are enjoying some bubbles at @bluelagoonis 🥂
