Spring Break European Style: Greece!

Greece was the last stop on my three week trip. And I have to admit as excited as I was to see Greece I was also glad it was the last stop, I was getting pretty traveled out!

I managed to spend the night before I left in Milan eating at my favorite place (Oskars in Milan. DELICIOUS food- some of the best pasta I have ever had!) After spending the night in Milan I met up with my friends Whitney and Zoe and Zoe's friend from home Brittany. We hopped on the plane and before we knew it we had arrived in Rhodes!

Rhodes was GREAT. not only were we able to enjoy a beach vacation but we explored a lot of the Island and even managed a day trip to Symi- a beautiful island about an hour ferry's ride from Rhodes.  We went swimming in the Aegean Sea, walked through some caves, and ate lots of delicious Greek food! Check it out!

Taking in the view!

I could dedicate a whole post to the amount of jumping pictures we took. Alas, I will leave you with just one. But check out the air I got on that jump!
