Shweta Doshi and Raj Govani – Greece
Shweta and Raj’s postcards from their 9 day Greek honeymoon
Boston-based, Shweta and Raj met at university in the U.S. They recently tied the knot in Mumbai and jetted off to Greece soon after. “Greece is one of the most dreamy and romantic honeymoon destinations,” Shweta says, citing the film ‘Bang Bang’, (which featured Greek locations in the song ‘Meherbaan Hua’) as a big influence in their decision to honeymoon there.
We travelled through Santorini, Mykonos and Athens. In Santorini, we stayed at Caldera Villas and the Galaxy Suites. In Mykonos, we stayed at Kivotos.
Our best meal was at Skala restaurant in Santorini. It had a great Greek dish ‘moussaka’ and awesome, fresh Greek ‘cottage cheese’ and salad.
Most romantic moment
A walk we took, gazing at the beautiful white and blue domes in Oia village in Santorini.
The infinity pools of Santorini island make you feel like you’re actually in heaven! Also, don’t miss the windmills and ‘Little Venice’ in Mykonos.
Don’t spend too many days in Athens; a night and two days are adequate. Make the most of your time in Santorini and Mykonos which are dream honeymoon destinations!
