Greece

 Greece has been on my travel bucket list after watching movies like Mamma Mia! and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. It’s crystal clear waters and the beauty of its architecture makes it too hard to resist! The cute little houses and of course Greek food adds to the beauty of the place. I’ve also always been interested in Greek mythology and to visit its birthplace would be a dream come true! Here are 5 of the destinations I’d like to visit when I get to Greece!
