Get ready to set sail with Nicola Easterby, travel photographer and blogger from Polkadot Passport, as we find what she wore on her island-hopping holiday in Greece. From soaking up the sunshine on the yacht to strolling around the most Insta-worthy towns, here’s how this mega-babe styled out her stay in the Mediterranean.
Setting sail to Perdika
The adventure began in Athens, where we hopped on-board the yacht that would be our home for the next week. It was time to set sail to the Saronic Islands! A few hours in, we made our first swim stop for the trip. I jumped into the sparkling Mediterranean ocean in my colourful Hawaiian-print swimsuit which seemed to perfectly mirror the vibrant color of the water! After a little more sailing, we arrived on the quaint little island of Perdika. We went for another swim on a secluded local beach, where we stayed and watched the water turned golden as we witnessed our first sunset of the trip.
Wandering around Ermioni
After a long day of sailing, we made it to the town of Ermioni. We spent the afternoon time winding through the streets of a picturesque neighbourhood perched up on a hill. As we wandered around, I wore this floral-print maxi dress which was nice and light for the hot weather, paired with my handy little leather bag. At every corner, we would stumble upon an alleyway bursting with fuchsia flowers or a patch of turquoise ocean peeking out on the horizon. We eventually reached the very top of the hill, where we stumbled upon a postcard-worthy view over the town and the ocean below.
Quad bike exploration in Spetses
Next up, we set sail to the island of Spetses. Although the weather was rather grim on arrival, we braved the over-passing storm and hired quad bikes to explore the island. We followed the ring road past lush hills and secluded aqua-marine coves and ended up at a magical hidden cave that we swam in. After our quad bike adventures, we explored the main town of Spetses by foot, encountering the most charming streets filled with flower-lined doorways. During our explorations, I wore this embellished maxi dress which was an ideal holiday staple – it was casual enough to wear during the day but classy enough to keep on in the evening.
Water sports in Poros
Our next stop was the action-packed island of Poros. After a few hours of sunbathing on-board the boat, it was time to take part in some water sports! I was glad that I had worn this scalloped swimsuit that day, as it offered the perfect level of support and coverage during the activities. After getting our adrenaline fix, we headed up to the bell tower in the centre of the town and had the most spectacular panoramic views during sunset. We finished the day with a scrumptious feast of halloumi, Greek salad and stuffed aubergine for dinner, paired with some lovely Greek wine.
Heading back to Athens
After an action-packed week of sailing around the Saronic Islands, we finally landed back in Athens! Not wanting the Greek adventures to come to end quite yet, we took the opportunity to explore Greece’s capital city before heading home. The temperature in Athens was soaring, so I was thankful to have a lightweight kaftan which I paired with a comfy pair of strappy sandals to wander around in. We rented an Airbnb with an epic rooftop overlooking the Acropolis, where we sat and watched the sun set over the specular ancient monument. I couldn’t think of a better way to end our epic time in Greece!
