Planning An International Bachelorette Trip? Santorini, Greece Inspiration Here

Every time I visit a new country there is usually a different reason behind that particular place. Sometimes I am sent on a press trip, other times I chose it for its affordable flights and beautiful views, and sometimes I visit places because of happy events. My recent trip to Santorini, Greece was to celebrate the upcoming wedding of a dear friend in a fabulous European bachelorette weekend.

With Santorini providing the most magnificent backdrop, we decided to create photos and memories that we would never forget. For the actual bachelorette night, all of us bridesmaids donned white dresses and flower crowns, a la Tatiana Santo Domingo’s celebration, while the bride to be stood out in pink. Then, to capture the moment in editorial worthy images we brought along a photographer to help our many iPhones get a rest from the postcard views and memories being made.

Spice and Spirit at the Aarti Ceremony on the Ganges River

jJ-2RAT1yOLngzyQk6PeEtqvHDXioW5lRPDo1iTNQ64My last night in Varanasi was spent at the highly anticipated Aarti ceremony, along the banks of the Ganges River. The ceremony is held each night at dusk, with many people renting a boat to watch from the water. A mixture of prayer, incense, fire, and sound, the ceremony is a treat for the senses. I could not understand what was being chanted, but the energy along the river was one of peace and clarity.
