Santorini

I don't have much to say about Santorini besides the fact that it is the most idyllic place I have ever been to.  This was my second time coming here and it was just as beautiful as I remember it.   Everywhere we walked and every corner we turned, the view was just gorgeous..... and looking at these pictures again makes me want to watch The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2

When we arrived in Santorini in the morning, this was our view!  You can see the different layers of volcanic rock on the island with the different colors.


I miss waking up to the fresh ocean air and room service.  My normal day-to-day isn't nearly as interesting....not in the slightest.


This is a viewpoint on the island.




Most of these pictures are going to look really similar but like I said, it was gorgeous.


These are shots from Oia which is the northern most tip of the island and the most beautiful.  It's where you see the white churches with the blue domes. 



I didn't know you could sell capers in water bottles!  The rocks in the basket is pumice just in case you are curious.  Looking at my feet, I should have bought one to scrub them with the pumice.



We tried traditional Greek snacks.... tomato fritters, fish paste, tzatziki, sausages, crackers, pita, etc.


 

I wish I were laying out right there right now.  This is the perfect place to go to relax and enjoy life.
