What to Pack for a Trip to Greece – What to Wear in The Greek Islands

Planning on spending some time island hopping in Greece this summer? You’re in for a trip of a lifetime! With white-washed villages set amongst the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean sea, a laid-back lifestyle, delicious food, and a fascinating history, a trip to Greece is hard to beat! Whether you’re there for the ultimate island-hopping adult spring break or a glamorous island honeymoon in Santorini, packing for Greece is almost as exciting as the trip itself! One thing that you should know is that summers in Greece can get HOT, so get ready for lightweight fabrics, flowy dresses and chic swimsuits galor! Not to mention a few items that will really POP against that dreamy white background of the Greek Isles…

First things first, don’t forget:

A travel adapter/converter that works with hair tools!

Now onto the fun stuff:
