After spending a long & tiring (but amazing) weekend in Mykonos, we got on this tiny ferry-boat thing that sped us straight to Santorini in about three hours. We hardly saw it go by as we were all fast asleep. Before I knew it, we were getting off on an island that has been a dream vacation spot for me for the last 8 years or so. It’s just one of those places right?
I’ll hold my stories for another post, but for now I want to share the beauty of this place with you. Well, I’d like to try. You really just need to go- it’s one of those places EVERYONE needs to visit. You’ll be standing in the city center and you take one turn and you’ll be staring down into the Caldera- middle of the island where the volcanic island sits.
The ridiculousness of the 600 stairs that leads to the dock to get to the boats for the excursions. Imagine hundreds of donkeys running up and down and hundreds of people either walking or on their backs. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE.
So I climbed a volcano, you might remember I mentioned that a few times? I’ll write more about it in another post, but this is the view of some of the hills we had to climb to get to the very top (the less steep ones, let me tell you). It was AWESOME.
Santorini is just as beautiful as you see on the internet, but there are also a lot of things that you never see. I’m excited to WRITE more about my trip, but I had to get the first round of pictures out so you all have an idea how I spent my time there. Going back through my albums every day is making me so sad, you can’t even imagine. It’s crazy when you stay in a place for just 6 days and you feel like you’re leaving a new home.
Have a great weekend!
