From Mykonos I continued to Santorini with a ferry.
On my first day I took a walk from my hotel to Firá, a city of white-washed houses built on the edge of the 400 metres high caldera on the western edge of the island of Thera. When the sun set, I had a lovely Greek salad, fried zucchinis (love, love) and a glass of white wine. This was actually the first time I was solo traveling – and learned a lot about myself to be honest.
Cause I was on the island on my own, I decided to take a buss tour. I know what you think, so lame, but hear me out. It was actually a really, really good way to experience the island. I would have not had the time to see all the things I saw during one day, if I had done it on my own. The best part of the tour was definitely visiting the city of Oia at the end of the day.
The beauty of Oia is just… it is almost impossible to describe in words. Small white houses tier the hillside, interspersed by splashes of rich okra, deep fuchsia, cobalt blue, oyster pink and earthy red. Little paths interconnect, interrupted now and then by a small church, and at every corner there is something new to discover. Oia is one of the most photographed places in Greece, if not the world and is best known for breathtaking sunsets.
Hope you will have a chance to visit Santorini once in your life, it really is a breathtaking place!
