YES! You read that right. Both Newark & JFK airports are gearing up to offer Non Stop flights to Athens, Greece starting in just a few months. Now – I’m not one to really care about a connecting flight, especially if my final destination leads me to floating in the Aegean Sea. For my Honeymoon back in 2015 I connected in Berlin before arriving into Athens and with a total travel time of about 12 hours… I thought that was pretty great.

Let’s be honest though, nothing beats a Non-Stop flight so I’m super excited for this new route direct from my local airport which will land you in Athens in less than 10 hours. If you live in the Tri-State area, this is definitely the time to start planning for an island hopping adventure in beautiful Greece.

Here are some of the lowest non-stop fares per month I was able to find via Google Flights:

April – $665 RT from JFK

May – $729 RT from JFK

June – $868 RT from EWR / $880 RT from JFK

July – $1168 RT from EWR / $1030 from JFK

August – $919 RT from EWR / $979 from JFK

September – $669 RT from EWR / $732 RT from JFK

Still think the prices above are a little bit too high? No worries – Emirates has you guys covered. They announced yesterday that they will now be offering Non-Stop service from Newark to Athens for as low as $595 starting March 12th! Go check out their site to price out dates.

Greetings from good ol’ New Jersey 🙂

I am back from the most incredible Honeymoon in Greece. The last month or so my blog really took a back seat since the workload between my 2 jobs was pretty overwhelming especially with all the planning from the wedding.

Now that I have returned I plan to kick Pearls & Paris up a notch. I will be updating a lot more frequently and will be posting more travel & wedding inspirations. I am so excited to share with you guys how I planned my wedding, photos from the big day as well as tips and photos from our Honeymoon in Greece.

While I was away – New York Fashion Week was taking place. Therefore, stay tuned for a little catch up on NYFW!
