Adventure 4: Greece

Woohoo! It's been a busy summer. But I have another adventure that I've recently taken from my 'bucket list' of 40 adventures for my 40's in 1940s style! See my list of planned adventures at this link.

Greece has always been high on my list and it's so close to where I live in the UK (comparatively to all the longhaul international travel I do for work). When my dear kitty passed away this year, I thought it was time to treat myself to a bit of self-care. So I signed up to an SJE trip --which is basically a holiday plus photoshoots.  What better way to meet new people but also get some great shots from my adventure and document my me-made and vintage outfits? Sign me up!

We stayed at an amazing self-catering villa. Everything we needed (view, comfort, pools, gym, etc) was there! It was so amazing and relaxing!

And I met a fabulous bunch of people!  Lots of different models from fitness folks to alternative models to fantasy and pin-up/vintage. It was so much fun meeting everyone! And the photographers were great as well (Simon Morton, Sally Sparrow, Brett Seeley, and Jody Wright).

There were several highlights from the trip! One was going on a catamaran out in the Mediterranean at sunset. I even wore my 1940s sailor dress (yay!):

Another huge highlight was going into the Mykonos town. It is classically Greek with white buildings and flashes of blue colour. So pretty and picturesque. The streets were small and winding. Here I'm wearing another me-made dress from a 1950s pattern:

Another great trip was hanging out at the Mykonos beach. While it was busy, we had our own beds and umbrellas and there were cafes that dotted the boardwalk.  Was so relaxing and I got to wear my 1940 me-made swimsuit:

Lastly, the views were just phenomenal and the owners of the villa also owned a vintage Rolls Royce that I got to take some photos with and imagine that I lived there and rocked the island lifestyle! hahaha. I love it so much!

Now that I've tasted Greece, I definitely want to explore more of the islands! Have you ever been? Is it on your bucket list?
