Dream holiday part 2: Paros

After three wonderful days in Athens Sebastiaan and I boarded the ferry and headed off to the beautiful island of Paros. I’ll admit I was somewhat dreading the 5 hour journey ahead but as soon as we made our way through the crowds of travelers, found a cozy (and sunny) spot on the deck and settled in with my book, the ride just flew by.

Once we pulled into the port at Paros I immediately fell in love with the island. The hills filled with little white cottages, crystal clear water and picture perfect blue sky were unlike anything I’d ever seen.

We caught a taxi to our amazinggg hotel and were immediately welcomed with drinks on the balcony– not a bad start! Our time in Paros was that perfect ย balance between doing everything and nothing at all. Although we’re devastated a bit sad to be back in cloudy Amsterdam, I have to say it was one of the most relaxing and romantic holidays we’ve ever had. ๐Ÿ™‚
