I just got back from the most awesome-est of holidays!
My boyfriend and I went to the small Greek Island of Skopelos, which I found out after arriving there that this was the island where they filmed most of the film: Mama Mia.
We spent a night in Athens on the way there, and on the way back, so I got to tick off another lifetime dream of visiting the Acropolis - Parthenon. It was unbelievable to be standing next to this majestic building with so much history! It felt completely unreal. I would definitely recommend going if you ever get the chance.
Skopelos is beautiful! Such a quant little island. We spent most of our time on the gorgeous beaches, our favorite being Kastani Beach (ironically, its the beach that they did a lot of filming on for the movie). The weather was hot! An average of 35 degrees celcius everyday, with nothing but stairs to climb! Because the town is build on hills, and the roads aren't wide enough for cars, the town is basically a maze of narrow, stone paved streets with thousands of stairs. And although the island is pretty small, it has 365 churches!
I had the most amazing time, sad that's its over, but so grateful that I got to experience it! Nothing like a holiday to make you feel like a new person!
