Turned out to be the exact opposite of my Athens experience.. which again, was more about the people I met, not the location..
During my stay on Santorini, I didn’t have much to do with people at all.. it was all about the location!
I have heard about Santorini as being one of the best islands to visit in Greece for many many years.. and it also seems that every bit of publicity and marketing for Greece shows the famous white houses on the cliffs here. They really are everywhere! And so good looking with the ocean blue.. and spring flowers.
I agree with the reasons the people love it so much here.. I have been to many islands in my life, and this one is very unique and extraordinary! However, I really don’t have much to say (in writing) about the island. I can simply show you around with plenty of photos. So this will be a lazy blog post.. but I hope you enjoy the pictures!
Another donkey looking quite sad (the one the man is on..) But the other is quite spunky!! Get outta the way!! It’s certainly a way of life on the island, I pass many men on donkeys as part of their work day.
The island is only 90 km2 all up.. so I covered it enough times in 3 days.. I learned that I couldn’t last long on a small island. I loved Santorini, very beautiful as you can see..defintely the right choice! But I felt a bit trapped by space and was ready to move on.
