Who wouldn’t want to take a girl’s trip to Hawaii? These islands have it all – beautiful beaches, clear-blue waters, and all-around relaxing vibes. With such a long journey from the east coast (best coast) of the US, we wanted to make a longer trip out of it. Of course, as always, we plan our trips with our somewhat limited finances in mind, but we had to have a couple of splurges while in the Aloha State! Keep reading to see where we saved and where we splurged (and what SHOULD NOT be missed).
In the summer of 2012, I traveled with 3 of my best girlfriends to the amazing country of Greece! When planning our vacation to Greece, it seemed like a monumental task. There are over 6,000 islands and 227 of them are inhabited! Should we rent a car? Should we book a cruise? Which islands should we go to? We had a lot to figure out. After some extensive research, we decided to enlist the help of ATB Holidays to assist us in planning the trip of a lifetime!
Cinque Terre, or five towns, is the name given to the collective group of fishing villages located along the coast of the Italian Riviera. Although there isn’t a lot here in terms of “famous sights to see”, Cinque Terre itself is the main attraction! The area is meant to be enjoyed leisurely, while hopping from one village to the next. It’s famous for the hiking trails that connect the villages with each other, or you can take the ferry or train that connects the towns. Savor the pasta, pesto, focaccia, and gelato or spend your day basking in the sun next to the crystal clear, blue sea.
Ever wonder what it was like to travel to one of the most sought-after honeymoon destinations? Well, we did, and it was not on either one of our honeymoons. If you love adventure and relaxation, this is the trip for you! Keep in mind that this is a honeymoon destination, so coming across solo travelers is…rare!
