Day 5 of our OPD Holiday Giveaway of $50. There’s still time to enter...it ends on Sunday at 4pm EST. See story highlights for details! . Here’s a different view of the iconic Cavo Tagoo pool from above. 💦 The sun beds in the pool were our go-to. And when it got too hot, you could just slip into the water to cool down! The sun beds out of the water do have shade, which was nice when you’ve had too much sun. Which option would you choose? . . . . . #ourpassportdiary#travelalways#travelcouples#travelust#cavotagoomykonos#droneheroes#mykonostown#luxuryhotels#prettylittleiiinspo#wetravel#beautifulmatters#droneofficial#luxuryhotels#speechlessplaces#greekislands#mykonosgreece#visitgreece#beautifulplaces#acolorstory#mykonosisland#cntraveler#travelandleisure#greecestagram#greecetravel#exploregreece#djiglobal#djimavicpro#mykonosisland#beachesnresorts

Day 4 of our OPD Holiday Giveaway of $50. See story highlights for details! . Sarakiniko beach takes you to the moon with its unworldly landscape! We came once during the day when it was crowded and we just laid out a bit and enjoyed the beach with everyone else. People were jumping off the rocks into the water and having so much fun! We came back a second time to see it at sunrise. There were only a few other people here at sunrise with us, so it was much easier to explore all the nooks and crannies of this place. . Is Milos on your list? It it isn’t, please add it, as it truly has the best beaches and landscapes in the Greek islands! . . . . . #ourpassportdiary#santorinigreece#iamtb#topgreecephoto#awaywego#topsantoriniphoto#prettylittleiiinspo#wetravel#sheisnotlost#beautifulmatters#speechlessplaces#travelwithme#beautifulplaces#acolorstory#sidewalkerdaily#femmetravel#girlsthatwander#girlslovetravel#greekisland#womentravel#cntraveler#travelandleisure#visitgreece#discovergreece#luxtravel#milosgreece#greekislands#greecestagram#passporttravel#coupleslovetravel

Day 3 of our OPD Holiday Giveaway of $50. It’s not too late to enter, see story highlights for details! . We stayed in Mykonos for three nights; one night we stayed in town and the other two nights we stayed at Cavo Tagoo. We explored town the first day and planned to see some beaches and the rest of the island the last two days. . But all that changed as soon as we stepped into Cavo Tagoo. The atmosphere at the pool is so fun and inviting that you don’t want to leave! Plus we were a bit jet lagged, so it was nice to relax by the pool with delicious food, drinks, great music and a killer sunset. Next time, we will see more of the island. . As travelers, we’ve got to be flexible and willing to make decisions between what we want to do, as things don’t always go the way as planned. It’s nice when they do, but a lot of times they don’t. We can’t control the weather, and sometimes we are more jet lagged than we thought we’d be and we just need rest. Scott and I constantly reevaluate our plans when we travel. When was the last time you changed your plans while traveling? . . . . . @cavotagoomykonos#ourpassportdiary#iamtb#awaywego#topgreecephoto#prettylittleiiinspo#wetravel#sheisnotlost#beautifulmatters#speechlessplaces#sunsetporn#sidewalkerdaily#travelwithme#beautifulplaces#acolorstory#femmetravel#cavotagoo#mykonosisland#mykonostown#mykonosgreece#greekisland#cntraveler#travelandleisure#visitgreece#discovergreece#luxuryhotels#bestsunset#travelandleisure#luxtravel#sunsetmagic

Day 2 of our OPD Holiday Giveaway of $50. See story highlights for details, it’s easy to enter! . We didn’t have a car in Santorini, so we hired a driver to take us from Oia town in the north, down to Akrotiri in the South, as we were switching hotels. Our driver took us to two different vineyards and a couple of view points, including The Three Bells of Fira (pictured here) where you can see the beautiful blue dome, the bells and the blue water all at once! The weather was perfect, as is tends to be in Greece. It was our favorite day in Santorini! . . . . . . #ourpassportdiary#santorinigreece#iamtb#topgreecephoto#awaywego#topsantoriniphoto#prettylittleiiinspo#wetravel#sheisnotlost#beautifulmatters#speechlessplaces#sidewalkerdaily#travelwithme#beautifulplaces#acolorstory#sidewalkerdaily#femmetravel#girlsthatwander#girlslovetravel#oiasantorini#santoriniisland#santorinisunset#greekisland#womentravel#cntraveler#travelandleisure#visitgreece#discovergreece#fira

See our stories (saved to highlights) on how to enter and don’t forget to use the Secret Emoji in your comments, so we can track who is entering! . This iconic view of Santorini was a bit hard to find. We shared how to get to this spot in a post a while back, but I’m including it again down below, so you don’t have to scroll! . HOW TO GET HERE: For anyone else looking for it, when you’re on the main pedestrian street and you’re walking east, you’ll pass the cutest bookshop on your left, Atlantis Books. Shortly after that, the path will split. Stay towards the left and eventually you’ll see part of the Oia Castle walls, which is where this is! . . . . . #ourpassportdiary#santorinigreece#dailyplanet#topeuropephoto#vacationgoals#holidaygiveaway#topgreecephoto#awaywego#topsantoriniphoto#prettylittleiiinspo#wetravel#sheisnotlost#beautifulmatters#speechlessplaces#cntraveler#sidewalkerdaily#travelwithme#beautifulplaces#acolorstory#girlslovetravel#oiasantorini#santoriniisland#santorinisunset#greekisland#travelandleisure#visitgreece#discovergreece#seasidetown#discovergreece#greekisland

Switching things back over to Greece for a bit, as we still have some more to share. Plus, now that the cold air has come and it truly feels like winter here, we are getting restless for another trip! Where’s your next trip? . *stands on soapbox* I generally try not to talk about my frustrations with Instagram with you all because I don’t want to come off as complaining. This platform has inspired us to get out more and explore places that we would’ve otherwise missed. It’s allowed us to meet other content creators and work with some great hotels and brands that we trust and recommend. . But as Instagram continues to tweak their algorithm, they are showing our photos and our stories to fewer of you each day, in an effort to get us to pay to promote our posts. Which is quite frustrating as we spend a lot of time capturing content that hopefully inspires you all to get out and explore and travel! . So here’s where we need your help! 🙏 For all of the content creators that you enjoy following and supporting, in any niche, make sure to double tap their photos as you come across it in your feed, or go back and like a few of their last photos if you haven’t in a while, leave a comment (we always see your comments!), watch their stories, share their account, save their photos. We always see the extra engagement and it allows us to be able to continue to create content that hopefully inspires you! Let us know if you’re able to help, down below. ⬇️ You know what to do! 👊 *steps off soapbox* . . . . . . #ourpassportdiary#awaywego#prettylittleiiinspo#wetravel#travelwithme#cntraveler#couplestravel#traveltagged#madewell#speechlessplaces#the_daily_traveller#wonderful_places#tlpicks#letsflyawayto#doyoutravel#iamtb#travelcouple#speechlessplaces#beautifulmatters#creativetravelcouples#travelust#travellust#visitgreece#travelandleisure#sunsetlove#goldenhourlight#gant#santorinigreece#greekisland#santorini

Let’s talk about how to get to Nantucket. You can either fly or take the ferry. We chose the ferry both times we’ve been, and all the ferries allow dogs. . The first time, we took the high-speed passenger ferry, which only took an hour. We didn’t have the car with us, but it was a weekend trip, the town is super walkable and Uber is on the island to get you anywhere else. . The most recent trip, we took the car ferry, which took 2 hours, but since we stayed a bit longer, we thought it would be nice having the car. Our return ferry got cancelled due to high winds, and we were rescheduled on a later ferry (about 6 hours later 😤). The car ferries don’t run as often as the passenger ferries, so it is a bit of a pain to get rescheduled on those. Something to keep in mind. It’s a nuisance when ferries/busses/trains/planes get cancelled, but that’s the real possibility when traveling. When was the last time this happened to you? . . . . . . #ourpassportdiary#awaywego#nantucketisland#mentravel#prettylittleiiinspo#visitma#wetravel#travelwithme#cntraveler#couplestravel#traveltagged#newenglandfall#speechlessplaces#the_daily_traveller#travelandleisure#wonderful_places#tlpicks#letsflyawayto#doyoutravel#iamtb#travelcouple#creativetravelcouples#sidewalkerdaily#longwalksonthebeach#nantucket#massachusetts_igers#newenglandlife#nantucketisland#massachusetts#beautifulmatters

There are three lighthouses on the island: Brant Point, Sankaty and Great Point. This one is Brant Point, but I’m going to tell you guys some tips about getting to Great Point, as it’s the most difficult to get to, and in the end, we had to turn around early (gotta save some stuff for next time 😉). ❈ It’s on a sandy point, and you have to drive a 4x4 approximately 6 miles on sandy dunes. Fortunately, we do have a 4x4! Unfortunately, we weren’t prepared and we’ve never used it to off-road in the sand, so we freaked out half a mile into our drive when we saw signs that we needed to deflate our tires to 15 psi or below (ours were at 42 psi 😬). We didn’t have cell service to look this up, and while we knew we could just deflate the tires, we were worried about the return and how we’d have to drive on the highway back to town with deflated tires, so we turned around. Next time, we will be prepared! And if any of you guys go, keep this in mind! When was the last time you traveled to something and weren’t sufficiently prepared for it? . . . . . . #ourpassportdiary#awaywego#nantucketisland#lighthouses#prettylittleiiinspo#visitma#wetravel#travelwithme#cntraveler#couplestravel#traveltagged#newenglandfall#the_daily_traveller#travelandleisure#wonderful_places#tlpicks#letsflyawayto#doyoutravel#travelcouple#speechlessplaces#creativetravelcouples#sidewalkerdaily#nantucket#massachusetts_igers#newenglandlife#nantucketisland#massachusetts#beautifulmatters#acolorstory

We spent a full day driving around the island of Nantucket, visiting different beaches and lighthouses. This beach is Steps Beach, and while I was excited we had the whole beach to ourselves when we went, it was definitely too cold to hang out for long. I’d love to come back in the summer and see this beach alive! There are beautiful homes built on the higher ground, and you walk down to the beach from a series of stairs. In the summer, there’s some greenery that covers a lot of the dunes, so you’ve got this beautiful contrast between the light sand, the greenery and the blue water. Where is a place you want to revisit in another season? . . . . . . #ourpassportdiary#awaywego#nantucketisland#prettylittleiiinspo#visitma#wetravel#travelwithme#cntraveler#couplestravel#traveltagged#newenglandfall#speechlessplaces#the_daily_traveller#wonderful_places#tlpicks#letsflyawayto#doyoutravel#iamtb#travelcouple#speechlessplaces#creativetravelcouples#sidewalkerdaily#sheisnotlost#darlingescapes#nantucket#massachusetts_igers#newenglandlife#nantucketisland#massachusetts#beautifulmatters

Three years and three months ago today, Scott and I began the adventure of a lifetime!

The tools free and super easy-to-use at every stage of yhe wedding planning process! ❈ Check out our stories to see a peek at our page on Zola and our registry (yes, it’s still up because we still order things off Zola, since it’s so easy!) and a few photos from our wedding in Maui! @zola#zolapartner#anythingforlove

I was surprised how many of you hadn’t heard of Nantucket, so figured I’d share some things about it! ❈ It’s an island off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Historically, the island was heavily involved in the whaling industry. But now it’s a summer destination, bringing in many visitors who come for a beach getaway, including Boston elite and Hollywood celebrities. It’s known for its beautiful beaches and picturesque shingle-style homes and buildings that populate the island. ❈ We liked that we got to experience Nantucket in the off-season, as we were able to explore without tons of people and traffic. But we certainly are curious about what it’s like in the summer! Nantucket summer 2019! Who’s in?! 🙋‍♀️ 🙋‍♂️ . . . . . . #ourpassportdiary#awaywego#nantucketisland#prettylittleiiinspo#visitma#wetravel#travelwithme#cntraveler#couplestravel#traveltagged#newenglandfall#speechlessplaces#the_daily_traveller#wonderful_places#tlpicks#letsflyawayto#doyoutravel#iamtb#travelcouple#speechlessplaces#creativetravelcouples#sidewalkerdaily#sheisnotlost#darlingescapes#nantucket#massachusetts_igers#newenglandlife#nantucketisland#massachusetts#beautifulmatters

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the US and we are thankful for the exceptionally beautiful autumn we’ve had in the northeast 🍁 all the traveling we’ve been able to do this year ✈️ and all of YOU in the #ourpassportdiary community who have helped to make our travels possible! ❈ Thinking back to this beautiful autumn day when Lady and I went for a walk through the park and heard the sound of wind blowing through the trees, leaves crinkling below our feet, and the river running. But sadly, all the leaves have fallen near us, and in just a couple days, we will start the countdown to the Holidays! And the sounds will he replaced by the Michael Bublé Christmas album on repeat (my fav), and christmas bells ringing. To me, this photo represents the changing of seasons and the calm before the storm. And I’ll think back to it when I’m feeling overwhelmed before the Holidays. How do you cope with feeling overwhelmed or stress during the Holidays? And what are you thankful for? . . . . . . #awaywego#fallfoliage#visitconnecticut#prettylittleiiinspo#wetravel#travelwithme#cntraveler#visitct#couplestravel#traveltagged#newenglandfall#speechlessplaces#the_daily_traveller#wonderful_places#tlpicks#letsflyawayto#doyoutravel#iamtb#travelcouple#creativetravelcouples#sidewalkerdaily#sheisnotlost#darlingescapes#newenglandlife#beautifulmatters#connecticutlife#connecticutgram#connecticut_igers

We had our first snow on Thursday, which came down exceptionally hard for about 5 hours and caused quite a nightmare during the evening commute. But most of it melted away by Friday afternoon. ❈ Since we had our first taste of winter on Thursday, we decided to head up to Vermont on Friday for Stowe Mountain’s opening day weekend!

New England fall really is something else. But apparently we are getting snow today! Our first snow of the season. ❄️ ❈ I’m not sure how I feel about that to be honest. The first snow is always so magical and I prefer it to happen during the time after thanksgiving but before Christmas, as it makes holiday shopping and decorating that much more inspiring! ✨ But snow before thanksgiving seems a bit early! I guess the weather gods don’t really care about my preference for timing of snow. 😂 When’s your favorite time for snow? . . . . . . #ourpassportdiary#savilledam#fall#awaywego#fallfoliage#visitconnecticut#prettylittleiiinspo#wetravel#travelwithme#cntraveler#visitct#couplestravel#traveltagged#the_daily_traveller#wonderful_places#tlpicks#letsflyawayto#doyoutravel#iamtb#travelcouple#creativetravelcouples#sidewalkerdaily#sheisnotlost#darlingescapes#beautifulmatters#connecticutlife#connecticutgram#connecticut_igers

There’s something fascinating and magical about covered bridges. Whenever we go up to Vermont, we like to find the ones nearby. ❈ They aren’t used as frequently anymore as they once were. And many of them have stories attached to them, like a romantic meeting spot, or haunting a from a past murder. There’s one near Stowe, Vermont that’s called Emily’s bridge that’s supposedly haunted and people experience actual sightings and feelings. I was too scared to visit that one, but maybe next we will give it a try.
