Greece has been on the top of my traveling bucket list ever since I can remember and this year I got to check that destination off of my list. But here’s the catch, going on this trip was actually extremely hard for me to do. I’m sure most of you are thinking, ‘You got the chance to go to Greece, why in the world would it be hard for you to go on such an incredible trip?’
See I’m a very sentimental person and this trip was one that I always imagined going on with a significant other, someone that meant the world to me. I wanted to save experiencing the trip of my dreams so that I could share it with that person. I even have a separate savings account started that’ll be used for trips with that lucky guy. The sap in me was wishing that I’d start dating someone special before I left on the trip and I could bring them along, but who am I kidding right?
There are so many moments that I have held myself back from experiencing something simply because I don’t have ‘that person’ to share those moments with. And this trip was almost one of them. I almost cancelled the whole thing just a few days before because I couldn’t envision going without a significant other. I couldn’t let go of the idea of sharing those memories together in a dream destination.
But then a thought hit me. Why in the world would I hold myself back from experiencing the trip of a lifetime just because I don’t have a special someone to share it with? That is the dumbest thing ever because guess what….when that person comes into my life, I can bring them back and experience it with them. And it will be just as good if not better because with the knowledge of having been there before it will mean there will be less stress and more time to enjoy experiencing the beautiful country of Greece together.
So if you’re single and have thought, ‘I’m holding out on this trip until I have a boyfriend or fiancé to experience it with.’ I’m telling you DON’T DO IT. It’s not worth it. Be independent. Go travel the world. When the timing is right you’ll have the opportunity to do those things with a significant other, but until then get yourself out there!
Going to Greece while being single made me that much more excited to bring someone special back to the same places and new places within the country. Now I have even higher hopes for the trip that I’ll experience with that man because I know just how magical it really can be.
Not only did I get to go on a trip of a lifetime, but I gained knowledge for when I go back, I had a blast and created memories with friends.
Most importantly, I now know that I don’t need to ‘save’ certain destinations. I can experience them whenever I want with whoever I want and simply use my significant other as an excuse to go back. 😉
I’m headed to my next destination, but the second I get back home I will send you all the dirty deets you need to know about where I adventured in Greece (including the deets on this suit & villa). Stay Tuned.
