Kimberly will be heading to Greece this May on a tour with Black Girl Travel. She’ll be visiting Athens, Mykonos and Santorini. Kimberly, I’m soooo jealous! I was planning a trip to Greece, but I never got a chance to go in the end.
Here’s what Kimberly writes about her upcoming travels:
“I always wanted to travel internationally, but it’s been slow since I’ve always tried to travel with others and the trips never happened. Well I’m looking to be more free so I’m traveling with a travel group for the first time (blackgirltravel.com) to Greece. I feel liberated and think it will give me the exposure to eventually feel comfortable doing solo international trips.“
Since Kimberly is still going over her itinerary, I thought I would think of ways for her to enjoy the Greek Islands.
I like wandering, and I think Mykonos’ main town, Chora, would be a good place to get lost.

Although I’m not a fan of mechanized anything :), it would be fun to see the island on a scooter.
Did you know that the Mediterranean diet was added to the UN World Heritage list? While it’s not just the cuisine of Greece (it includes Italy and Turkey), Greek food is still considered rather healthy. I’d try new Greek dishes as well as see if I could find authentic versions of old standbys.
I’ve never had this, but it looks GOOD.
Has anyone been to Greece? Do you have any advice for Kimberly for places to see in Athens, Mykonos and Santorini, especially off the beaten path ones? I would love to hear them. We’ll definitely be following up with Kimberly after her trip.
