Help with Itinerary - 14 days (2 travel)

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone - thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide. I am a 33 year old male who will be travelling from Australia in June/July next year. I have about 16-17 days in total to be away and have always wanted to visit the Greek Islands. In conversations with a friend recently I discussed how I would be on my own, therefore, would lounging around the islands for a few weeks only become too boring. So I have looked at other options also such as: Amalfi Coast, Croatia and Spain. I thought I could try and combine the two - all advice points to not doing this due to travel time packing / unpacking etc. Greece and the islands are a must do. My original plans were:

Athens - 1 or 2 nights
Flight or Ferry to Mykonos 5 nights
Ferry to Santorini 4 nights
Athens 2 nights fly home.

However subsequent to my chats with friends I thought maybe I could shorten the time in the islands and combine 5 nights or so somewhere else (flying out of Santorini?).

So - I guess what i want to know is, in your opinion:

a) Would it be better to just 'do' Greece and the islands mentioned
b) If i were to cut them short and fly somewhere else before heading home, where?
c) are there any alternate suggestions - assuming you don't suggest to throw in another country to the planned Greece one listed above, its some very rough initial thoughts.

I enjoy: beaches, nightlife, eating, seeing sights (love to 'tick things off the list')....

Thanks in advance.
