On a group trip to Greece in 2015, I experienced the true “Mama Mia” and “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” experience. We traveled the islands of Greece in the Mediterranean on a cruise and spent a few days in Athens.

A view from our rooftop in Athens, shows the beauty and business in the city of Athens, Greece.

On a trek to the Acropolis, we saw many ancient Greek monuments. Despite the Parthenon being under construction, we were still able to experience the grandness of the giant structure.

Beginning our trip through the islands, we visited Santorini. Here the buildings are all white and make the views unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.

On another excursion off the cruise, we visited Turkey. Here we visited an authentic Turkish Rug Workshop and saw the different varieties and how they were hand-made and dyed.
