Even in the beginning of April in Greece, which happened to be a very raining and less touristy time to be in Greece, the country is just a stunning as ever. The wildflowers were blooming like crazy, the streets weren't as busy in Athens, and there wasn't a soul to be seen on the islands (which turned out to be both a good a not so good thing). Greece is one of those countries that is beyond picturesque everywhere you go - with the ancient architecture, wildlife, food, and bright colors you will not be disappointed with what you discover on this beautiful Mediterranean country by the sea.
Fun Tip: If you walk across the street from the Acropolis into Filopappou Park and hike to the top, you have the most incredible view of the Parthenon and Athens below it (bonus, the park is free).
Milos is a smaller and less popular of the Greek Islands (not as well known as Santorini or Mykonos) but just as beautiful. Since I went in the beginning of April and tourist season really begins in May, most shops were closed on the island. It was a bummer in the beginning - but a few main restaurants were open and it just persuaded me to rent a car for a day to explore the tiny island.
