Our first stop in Greece was the lovely island of Santorini.
“Santorini is a volcanic island in the Cyclades group of the Greek islands. It is located between Ios and Anafi islands. It is famous for dramatic views, stunning sunsets from Oia town, the strange white aubergine (eggplant), the town of Thira and naturally its very own active volcano. There are naturally fantastic beaches such as the beach of Perissa, maybe the best beach in Santorini, the black pebble beach of Kamari, white beach and red beach.” -WikiTravel.com
This beautiful island is a jewel in the Mediterranean and is one of the most picturesque isles that we visited. This lovely island sits atop a hill over looking the Greek Isles. The history of this island is rich having origins in ancient Greek mythology.
We had a very limited stay here- but it is defiantly one of the places that I would eagerly go back to and visit to experience more. The food was delicious, the views were epic, the locals were friendly, the weather was warm and to celebrate the end of the day people gather to at the west end of the island to applaud set of the Sun. A perfect combination.
One of the most memorable things for me was having real Greek Frozen Yogurt for the first time. It possibly was one of my favorite food experiences on the trip. It was amazingly delicious and, just, well perfect. It was one of my favorite food experiences on the trip. When the weather gets warmer I am looking forward to making it from scratch. 🙂
As a general rule my favorite places to go are places that throw a party as the Sun sets and Santorini was no expectation. About an hour and a half before the Sun sets everyone runs to the West side of the island to watch the last rays of the Sun caress its beautiful shores. And the sun lowers its lovely face for the day among applause and appreciation for a job well done.
I look forward to going back to Santorini, as its lovely shores have a lot to discover and play in.
