Gabrielle Union & Dwyane Wade Prove That Greece Should Be Your Next Baecation Destination

Gabrielle Union

Longer days and shorter nights mean that baecation season is among us ladies and gentlemen, and thanks to Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade, I have the perfect destination for your summer-loving escapades. After retiring from a 16-year basketball career, NBA legend Dwyane Wade and his black queen are taking a trip around the world that will make you jealous AF. The couple recently kicked off their #WadeWorldTour and served us real-life travel goals via the 'gram.

The first stop on their worldwide adventure was Greece, where Gabrielle rocked an itty bitty bikini and Dwyane let it all hang out. The island-hopping couple has kept us posted on all of their baecation loving via Gabrielle's Instagram stories, and if you're like me, you were ready to buy a flight to the land of sunshine and gyros like... yesterday.

Known for its ancient ruins and beautiful beaches, this is the perfect place for romance. Not to mention, you still have a few weeks before summer starts... so what are you waiting on, sis? Get your favorite budget airline search engine revved up and get to booking!

If you're considering following in Gabrielle and Dwyane's footsteps and jet-setting to Greece but I haven't quite convinced you that Aristotle's hometown is the ideal place to get it on with your special someone, these spots might just get your inspiration flowing:

Disconnect on Hydra Island

Imagine a place with no pollution from noisy cars and motorcycles, surrounded by white sand beaches and amazing sunsets. Now open your eyes. Boom, you're on Hydra Island.

On this quaint body of land in Greece, no cars are allowed and you have to take a water taxi to get from one side of the island to the other. If you and your boo are in need some quiet time and dope scenery, Hydra Island is the perfect destination.

Drink Wine In Santorini

Known for having some of the best sunsets and wines in Greece, Santorini is the touristy romance destination of your dreams. Along with red sand beaches, hot springs, and mineral mud baths, you and bae can take a tour of the Santorini volcano at sunset to really get the flames going.

Go Nude In Mykonos

Whether you and your man are looking for a turn-up or a wind-down, Mykonos is the way to go. From private beaches where you and your partner can go all natural (and yes, it's legal) to summer disco parties that are known to be lit AF, this city has a little bit of something for everybody. This bohemian Mecca has some of the world's best beaches and native Greek seafood galore.

Eat Your Way To His Heart In Thessaloniki

We all need a therapeutic dip in salt and mineral-filled waters every now and then, and one of the best places to do that is in Thessaloniki. As the second largest city in Greece, the metropolis is Greece's food capital and is known as the "city of love". Relish in the modern art of the city and make some beautiful music with your boo later while watching the sunset at the Macedonia, or one their many other luxurious hotels.

Simone Biles is a decorated U.S. gymnast who captured the hearts of many with her ambitious, yet graceful moves. However, over the past year, fans got to witness another side of Simone after the gymnast began expressing the issues she's faced regarding her mental health. The Olympic gold medalist shocked everyone when she pulled out of some of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games, citing "twisties" as the reason. The twisties is a gymnastics term that is described as losing control of your body while spinning in the air.

The relationship we have and nurture with self lays the foundation for how we relate to and connect with others in our lives. Assessing the issues that discourage self-love from prospering are key in order to repair and reignite the freedom that comes when we finally believe the words "you are enough." I chatted with self-love advocate and lifestyle entrepreneur Shelah Marie – who you may remember from when her 2017 photo of doing yoga with boyfriend, rapper Ace Hood, went viral. Shelah's mission is to create a movement of total self-love and liberation for women of color through her platform Curvy, Curly, Conscious – a place where "self-help" meets "real talk" through virtual and offline events and retreats.

The first time I really learned about the five love languages was a year after a big heartbreak in my early twenties, and since then I've found myself exploring the love languages of each of my subsequent partners in an effort to be a better lover to them. At the click of a simple quiz, you'll know whether words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, or physical touch is the primary way you prefer to experience love.

At the start of each season, I browse the net to get an idea of the latest styles and trends to look out for when adding to my closet. When shopping, not only do I love items that are hot for the moment but mainly those that I can keep in rotation year after year. I especially look for styles that are both modern and classic, giving off an effortlessly timeless vibe.

Kissing is such a fascinating thing — to me. The reason why I say that is because, if the person you are exchanging a kiss with is someone who is good at it, it can be the sexiest, most special and most exhilarating thing ever. On the other hand, if they aren't so good — it's just gross. I don't know about y'all, but kissing is such a big deal in my world that I once broke up with someone, in part, because they totally sucked at doing it. It was like, no matter how hard I tried to explain to them what I needed in order to feel like we were in "kissing sync", they would continue to go off and do their own thing. All over my face (yuck).
