Anyone can travel and take photos to preserve their memories, especially in this day of digital cameras, iPhone cameras and Photoshop, So it is always lovely to see travel through the eyes of a professional such as Wesley Villarica, commercial photographer, director and a brand ambassador for Canon EOS cameras, who went to Greece on his Easter break. “I like to travel, eat and take photos in my spare time, which is exactly what I did during this trip to Greece,” says Wesley, who is currently putting up a fun viral video site, SevenVIP.com.

Wesley first visited Athens for two days before flying to Crete. “I stayed at Village Heights Golf Resort in Crete and decided to rent a car to drive to Heraklion, Hersonissos, Agios Nikolaos and Chania for the four days I was there. Driving was the best decision I made because it allowed me to explore the towns at my own pace without being rushed by any tour groups,” he says.

From Crete, Wesley took a high speed ferry to Santorini but unfortunately ran into terrible weather so decided to head to Mykonos for a night. “This trip was an 10 amazing days of scenery, food and culture,” says Wesley.

Here are Wesley’s top three favorite things about his trip to Greece:

1.  Food. Greek seafood is amazing.  It’s also not expensive to eat out.

2.  Culture.  The archeological digs and museums are a must-do!

3.  Sightseeing.  Everything is picturesque.  EVERYTHING.
