Santorini

I could rack my brain for hours and hours and would still find it difficult to come up with a place more beautiful than Santorini.

The magnificence of the white buildings, surrounded by blue skies and blue seas is absolutely breathtaking! You will not see one tourist without a camera in their hand ready to capture the next available piece of beauty. I use the word ‘available’ because there are literally queues of people lining up to get a shot of the next gorgeous view.

We disembarked the ship and got on our coach to get up to the town. The views were spectacular along the way which had us excited but unfortunately, our tour guide spent more time talking about the different varieties of food growing there, and their multiple stages of ‘ripeness’ instead of actually sharing any decent information.

If anyone does have any questions, though, on the ripening stages of fava beans or cherry tomatoes, please do let me know.

Mykonos.

A few photos from the first stop of our amazing 4 day cruise around the Greek Islands.

I always knew how beautiful the Greek Islands were supposed to be and always had the dream to visit them one day.
Finally, last week, our time came to see some of the most beautiful places we have ever been to.

Mykonos. Our first stop of the cruise and one of our favourites.

We got there late afternoon and even though we would be having dinner on the ship later that night, we headed straight to try some of the local cuisine.
A big part of travelling for me, especially to new places, is trying the local food. It was a good way to immerse ourselves in the culture given the little time we had.

We stopped off at a little outdoor cafe/restaurant, ordered our hummus and pita, chicken souvlaki and baklava and watched travellers from all over the world pass us by, each with a camera swinging on their necks. Who would not want to capture every moment of a place so beautiful?

I kid you not when I say, this little roadside cafe served the BEST hummus, souvlaki and baklava I have ever tasted!!! Incredible! My mouth is actually watering at the thought of it.

Feeling full and extremely satisfied, we walked around the small cobbled streets, lined with white buildings and blue doors. Each little turn revealed new and exciting hidden treasures. Shops full of beautiful art work, jewellery, clothes, souvenirs and pottery lined the streets.

We were already wishing we had brought more than just hand luggage.
