We had sooooooo much fun in Zakynthos and I got to check a few things off my bucket list that I have been dying to do/see. Both of my sisters were with us with their husband and fiance. It’s always fun to travel in a big group, especially when it’s family. We went to so many beaches, this is just a few of them. The water was surreal. I’ve been to some very amazing beaches in Hawaii and in the Caribbean, but these take the cake. Not for the sand, but for water color. It honestly looked like someone dumped blue food coloring in the sea. It was the prettiest water I’ve ever seen in my life! It was impossible to keep Atticus out of the water too, even though it was a little chilly. He would crawl right up to the edge and if I wasn’t watching him like a hawk he’d probably just dive head first. He definitely doesn’t get that from me, he must get it from his Dad:) We did a boat tour through caves and David of course was doing back flips off the boat in to the caves – he’s cray I tell ya.

Hope you all have a great day! Xox

THIS TIME LAST YEAR

  1. Hi Amber, I am planning to go to Zakynthos next year. I have been planning to go for so long now. I was wondering what month you were there? was it busy or quiet? Your photos from Navagio beach look amazing! but how was it so empty? I always see photos of it crowded with people & would love to avoid this. I was reading your travel tips & that you went on a water taxi & were able to spend 3 hours there instead of the usual 1 hour. What time of the day did you arrive to the beach? This would help me greatly. Thank so much 🙂 Jess

  2. This beautiful place is on my bucket list. Your pictures so the beauty of this stunning place.
    Hopefully one day I will make it there. Favorite post so far!

  3. Hi Amber, we are so excited to be visiting Zakynthos this July, thanks for your inspiring posts! Xx

  4. Hi Amber,
    I love seeing all of your adventures. We are headed to Zakynthos in Sept, and I’m wondering what boat tour company you used to get to shipwreck beach and the blue caves? And did you book ahead or just when you got there?
    Thank you,
    Michelle:)

    1. Hi Michelle!! How fun!! I am so excited for you!! You will love it 🙂 And I honestly don’t remember the company name but there are a few of them, and you can purchase tickets on the spot, I believe it was 20 euros/person. They all pretty much do the same thing! Sorry I can’t be much help!!

  5. Hi Amber! I love following along on your travel adventures, especially since I have a son just a couple weeks older than Atticus and we are Americans currently living in Germany and travel all over with him 🙂 I’m wondering, if you had to choose one, would you go to Santorini or Zakynthos? How much time did you spend in each place? We want to do your similar itinerary but don’t think we have enough time to do both. Congrats on sweet little Rosie btw, she’s so adorable!

    1. Hi Mollie!! Thank you so much for following along, that makes me so happy to hear!! 🙂 And I think I would choose Santorini! We loved it there! We spent around 4 days in Santorini and then about 3 in Zakynthos. You could definitely do less and still see “everything”. Have a blast!! xo

  6. hi I am going to santorini in September and I was wondering how you go to this beach from there?

    1. She flew to Zakynthos, i think because Santorini is to far away
      🙂

  7. WOW! Amazing photographs! Feel the positive energy!

  8. Gorgeous photos! (as always) So jealous of your trip! I have wanted to go to Santorini forever, it looks breathtaking 🙂

    xo kristen

    1. Thank you Kristen!! Greece is such a beautiful country, I would definitely suggest going 🙂 xo

  9. Do you have a hair tutorial for the hairstyle you are wearing on the pictures where you’re on the cliff? If not, could you pleasedo one?

    I also want to say I have been following your blog for a while and I think it is one of the most inspiring ones out there. The travelling, the pictures,your style… everything! You have a lovely family, I hope one day I have one as great as yours 🙂

    Greetings from Spain!

  10. following your blog and insta account for a while and never leave a comment, but now i couldn’t resist! photos are awesome and i hope you and your family more & more happiness every day! thanks for sharing your best moments with us … xoxo

    1. Aww thanks so much for your sweet comment!! Thank you Helia!! You are too kind!! xo

  11. Hii amy,
    I saw the post now, oh i love greece so much you need to see Chaldikidi too i was there last year nice sand beaches and clear water!! You had luck that the beach was so empty when we were gone. When we come it was so many people but the clear water made everything fine!
    And you need to visit spain, Mallorca has a great water and nice beaches away from the party places.

    Hope see you next Time in Germany,
    Much love to you! (Okay i need to do something with my english:D)

    But one question i forget where was the another beach?:o

  12. Amber, these photos are stunning! Such beautiful water! Just curious, with what lens did you or David shoot these photos? I have a Canon and am looking for a new primary lens. Thanks!

  13. Girl! This looks absolutely like a DREAM! I am not usually a one piece wearer but that VS suit might change my mind on that J That beach with the shipwreck is so beautiful! Was this a tour that took you to all the different islands?

    1. Thanks so much Angela!! You are too sweet!! I love this style of swim suit!! I think it is so flattering on most everyone!! And we actually just took a boat from a dock nearby where they sell tickets to go to Shipwreck beach. On the way back, the boat takes you through blue caves, I believe it was 15 euros a person. We loved it 🙂

  14. Amber! I am loving all your travel pics. As beautiful as all your pictures are, the travel pictures are my favorite. I love living vicariously through your beautiful family’s adventures! I’ll be heading to Greece in a couple of weeks starting with Santorini before heading to Italy (I’ve been referring to your Italy posts for recommendations) and now I want to add Shipwreck Beach to the list!

    1. Aww thanks so much Gigi!! I will pass that nice compliment along 🙂 Wow!! Did you and your husband love it?! What a great place to honeymoon!! 🙂

  17. Ugh, your hair is goals! I’ve tried so hard to recreate your braids but I guess my hair is too thick…I have a lot of hair so whenever I do braid either hair goes flying everywhere after 5 minutes or it looks like a giant bun of hair!

  18. Okay, I don’t wanna brag, but I think I live in the most beautiful country! I was going to say the sea looks like someone dyed it food-coloring blue, but then I saw you had already written it. Hm, I think I could get used to this, too!

  19. Your Greece posts make me so excited! My boyfriend and I are traveling there in late July and will be stopping in Zakinthos for a few nights. Do you have any recommendations on places to stay or on tours that you did? Would love your input! Glad you had a great trip!

    xx Kristina

  29. Hi Amber! Every photo from your trip to Greece should be made into a post card- so beautiful!

    My question for you is, what camera do you/David use? Is there any particular flash attachment/lens or setting you use? I’m a young photographer looking to start my own blog, and your photos serve as a very big inspiration for what I hope to one day achieve.

    1. They were like nothing I have seen before!! It was so beautiful!! I hope you can visit someday 🙂 xo

  38. Gorgeous! Love following your adventures. Question: Are the Steve Madden ‘Rillie’ Two Strap Sandal comfortable for walking/travel? I’m heading to Germany for two weeks in July and on the hunt for a somewhat comfortable sandal to pack. Just need something not too stiff that doesn’t require a ton of breaking in and straps that won’t rub my feet raw.

    1. Thanks so much Dani!! And YES!! I wore them all around in Greece!! They have a thick sole too, so I found them to be super comfy!! I would definitely recommend them! How fun you’re going to Germany!! Have a blast! Thanks for reading!! xo

  39. These pictures are stunning! Looks like a great trip, thanks so much for sharing. I’m also obsessed with that leaf print bathing suit, I’ll definitely be checking it out!

    1. Thanks so much Kari!! We had such a great time!! I am so glad you like the suit 🙂

    1. It was so beautiful!! We loved it 🙂 I hope you can visit someday too!! Thanks for reading!! xo

  40. Holy guacamole! Seriously. I was thinking, “That water color looks fake!” It is so incredibly beautiful and that shot from the top of the cliff looking down at the water…to. die. for. I was in Mykonos a few years ago and these shots just make me want to be there right now!!! The water color was really similar and even when you’re there, the whole experience is just unreal. It looks like you guys had so much fun & that is like the perfect vacation when you’re pregnant because you get to be with family, relaxing, and seeing beautiful sites around Europe.

    The photos are beautiful, you look stunning, and I am sufficiently jealous 🙂

    xoxo,

    1. Seriously!! It was so beautiful!! It did not look real, it was crazy!! I heard Mykonos is amazing! Did you love it?! Greece is definitely somewhere I would visit again, we loved it!! I agree, it was so relaxing! Thanks so much for your sweet comment!! xoxo

  41. The colors there are unbelievable! And your photos are just amazing!! Cute swimsuits!!
