This is what you can do on a quick trip to Greece and Turkey

Unless you have been living under a big fat rock, you probably already know that Greece is a magical haven for every lusty wanderer. Ever. Years ago when devastation and elegance fell in love afloat the Aegean coasts, Greece and Turkey happened. Spectacular islands, understood. Even ruins are magnificent? Much fair to say these destinations ace the art of falling gracefully.

If you think this post is just about hopping the flawless islands and falling head over heel over the ancient ruins that Greece and Turkey hold dear, stay tuned. Let’s get to a small-talk on how you can go about these two destinations when you plan last minute.
