After 15 days of incredible holiday in Greece, getting back to everyday life was no easy. There was extreme fun,laughter and friendship. But I also realized every time I return from a holiday, it always made me so dynamic,cheerful and positive. I guess travelling opens you to various forms and attitude towards life.
Santorini was on my wish list for many years. I am sure on everybody’s as well and why not. It is in deed such a breathtaking place.
This island is all about beauty. Known for its royal blue sea, white washed buildings with blue domes,mountains, stunning views and romance. When I write this, my heart is till beating with the rhythm of excitement and euphoria. I had heard about it and seeing it in person was something spectacular and dream come true. I can recollect, when I told a friend of mine about my travel to santorini ,she at once showed me her mobile phone screen saver. And I see a perfect picture of santorini.
Santorini was the last destination on our travel itinerary. After experiencing a week of crazy parties and beach life, this island was more relaxing which we were looking forward to. We stayed at the sunrise studios on the beach of kamari which is beyond wonderful if you are looking for a studio with luxury. From there we would walk right into the beach,restaurants and shopping streets.
To watch the eminent sunset in Santorini we had to drive to Oia, another scenic town. Weather being warm and humid I slipped into this black off shoulder dress from FOREVER21 and I guess I made a good choice as it was perfect for exploring around Oia. Also inaugurated this new black sunnies which I picked up in Athens. So this cute little town is built on the slope of the caldera, bustling with people,cliff side cafes and restaurants with spectacular view of the sea and street shops. You can easily spend a day straying around the streets.If you are looking for souvenirs and gifts to take back home, you can do it here and a twilight zone for amazing pictures.
The delicate whites and burst of blue will always remain in your mind wanting you to go back again and again.
