the lazy girls’ guide to navigating a new city in a time crunch

When it comes to travel, we consider ourselves to have many varied areas of expertise. Need to know what cultural stuff you can skip in favor of eating your way through any given European capital city? We’re your girls. Wondering what IS the right amount of red wine to drink on an overnight flight so you don’t arrive looking like a zombie straight out of the depths of hell? You call us. Maximizing your time in a new city, cramming in as much wonder as you possibly can in 18 hours or less? Ehhhh…. that is just not our style. In news that will shock no one, we don’t really like to feel pressure to…

#LTgreekweek // mykonos is for insta-lovers

If you followed along on our trip to Mykonos with My Greek Villa, then you already know we had an amazing week filled with stunning views and insanely delicious food. It’s no question that Mykonos is a dream destination for foodies, honeymooners & girls’ getaways, but one thing you might not have guessed is that it’s the PERFECT place for anyone obsessed with Instagram. * raises hands * Guilty as charged. Though we’ve had our account for quite awhile, and have posted on it pretty religiously, this year took us to destinations that really helped us up our insta-game. HEART EYE EMOJIS FOR THESE COLORS. (you should follow us @lazytravelers) We figured not all our blog readers are on Instagram, so we wanted…

#LTgreekweek // the lazy girls’ guide to off-season dining in mykonos

As you may know, we’re long-time fans of traveling during the off-season. The pace is slower, the locals are friendlier, and best of all, the prices are lower. Now that one of us is traveling with a baby, shoulder season travel is more appealing than ever — especially when you’re visiting a destination that’s also known as one of Greece’s top party islands. While Mykonos and its club scene go hand-in-hand, visiting in October meant that most places were starting to close down for the year. Fortunately, friends and readers who know the island well knew just where to send us (admittedly not club goers, even in our younger years), and we spent our week…

#LTgreekweek // one week in mykonos with @mygreekvilla

Somehow, the end of 2016 escaped us. Maybe we were just as ready for it to be over as everyone else, but somehow, the last four months of the year flew by faster than we could say, “Is it 2017 yet?!?!” JK, we said that sentence a LOT. Even so, we can’t hate on 2016 that much — there was a lot of good, too, and we’ve decided that that’s what we want to focus on. So, without further ado, let’s talk about one of our very best trips of last year… A girls’ week away at My Greek-Villa‘s beautiful Villa Ellis in Mykonos! We had a great time with our husbands during our week-long…

style spotter // #LTgreekweek: mykonos edition

WELL, hello, October! Fancy meeting you here! We must admit… we’ve been not-so-patiently waiting for this month to arrive since our planes’ wheels met the pavement post-Portugal. That’s because in just a few weeks (days, practically), we’re off on another grand adventure: MYKONOS Yes, correct, our trip with MyGreek-Villa is just around the corner, and naturally, we’re starting to figure out what the heck we’re going to wear! As we’re going a little after peak season, we’re hoping for perfect pool weather… but nothing’s a guarantee, so we must be prepared. Unfortunately, we’re terrible at being prepared! What we’re not terrible at, however, is scrolling through the endless pieces on Polyvore and wishing our own…
