Hollywood actress and popular celebrity Kate Hudson has told worldwide leading fashion publication Harpers Bazaar that Greece is her favourite place in the world.
“Greece is my favorite vacation spot; I feel really at home there. I love the culture, the people are wonderful, and the water is just so incredibly appealing,” she said in her interview.
The star of Bride Wars, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Fool’s Gold is a huge fan of the Aegean, along with her mother Goldie Hawn and step father Kurt Russell, who spend every summer in Skiathos.
Kate is currently pregnant with her third child and says there is nothing better than being in Greece with her family and although she loves all the islands and visits many, she can’t go passed spending time with her loved ones in Skiathos.
The A list celeb described her perfect day to Harpers Bazaar-
7:30 a.m. My perfect day is a vacation day, so I wake up on an island in Greece to the sound of my kids running around. I’m an early riser. The door is open, and it’s already warm. I get a double espresso and walk down to the sea for a swim. My sons run on the beach.
8:30 a.m. We head back to the house, one of those adorable Greek houses with whitewashed walls and blue shutters, and I make myself two soft-boiled eggs and waffles. Then I read the papers. I skim The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Post to get their different points of view.
11:00 a.m. I go for a hike with my partner. After that I do a little Pilates work, followed by light weights. I wear shorts and a bralette from my Girl Up capsule, which benefits SchoolCycle. It’s a really great initiative of the United Nations Foundation that provides bikes to girls in Guatemala and Malawi to help them access education and stay in school.
12:30 p.m. I shower and get dressed. My vacation wardrobe consists of bikinis, high-waisted shorts, scarves you can tie in a million different ways, and flip-flops. Today’s plan is to board a little dinghy-type boat and go to another island for a lunch of fried zucchini and moussaka at a seaside taverna. After lunch the kids play on the beach, while I’m being naughty and just soaking up the sun, though I do have sunblock on. I love seeing them enjoy such freedom.
“On a perfect day, I never look at my phone, answer e-mails, text anyone, or check Instagram.”
2:30 p.m. We get back on the boat and hit a couple of different islands. Greece is my favorite vacation spot; I feel really at home there. I love the culture, the people are wonderful, and the water is just so incredibly appealing.
4:00 p.m. Back at the house, I spend the rest of the afternoon lying around reading and drinking a little rosé. On a perfect day, I never look at my phone, answer e-mails, text anyone, or check Instagram. It’s very easy for me to disconnect. When I turn everything off, that’s when I dream and create, and the good stuff happens. My favorite things to read are biographies and historical fiction. I love Anne Boleyn and all the kings and queens. I’m fascinated by different aristocracies, the czars, and presidents. Right now I’m reading A Gentleman in Moscow. And I’m obsessed with The Crown, but TV is not part of my perfect day.
6:00 p.m. A handful of my closest friends and my entire family gather to watch the magical Greek sunset and have a little cocktail before heading into town for a feast. Happiness to me is good conversation, connection, and lots of laughter. If I could invite anyone to dinner, it would be Bob Marley. I would have loved to meet him and see him in concert.
9:30 p.m. Bed. Up early; early to bed—perfect!
