A Greek Paradise

We had planned in advance to make our way south to Santorini in September to discover for ourselves if this island truly lives up to its hype. We were sold.

In short, Santorini is an island for lovers, posers and sun revellers. Honeymooners, newlyweds (literally, as some choose to say ‘I do’ on this island), couples both young and old flock to this magical island to bask in the glow of love and sunshine.  The blue domed churches which I’ve seen countless of times in pictures appear even more enchanting when seen right before my eyes that a million photos were in order. Everyone had the same idea, so popular picture spots often had a queue to get your turn for a picture.

And the caldera was truly breathtaking. That was the icing on the cake that we did not see happen. I knew about the charming buildings and churches, but oh my, the caldera catapulted Santorini into the top spot of the most naturally beautiful places we’ve seen.
