Santorini, Greece 2016

Continuing our adventure through the Greek Islands, Santorini was our last island. Following our four days in Ios, we finally arrived after dealing with ferry cancelations for 24 hours due to bad weather. We definitely didn't let a now shorter stay stop us from exploring this amazing place.

What I didn't realise until we arrived was that Santorini is made up of different towns which are quite far away from eachother. Thira is the main town which is the busiest and has everything from food, boutiques, views, and nightlife. Thira is where we stayed, and I couldn't have been more happy with that decision as it is more lively during the day, and throughout the night. Thira is where we explored the back streets and found ourselves walking past donkeys, watching sunsets over the volcano and tasting all types of Greek foods.

Oia, is the most pictured town in Santorini. This is the place to be when you want to catch an amazing sunset and surround yourself with incredible views. We spent one afternoon here and did exactly that. You can find everything from book stores, small family businesses and cafes.

On our final day, we spent the day exploring Santorini beaches. This is made up of red beach, white beach and black beach. We took a public boat service at the beginning of the day to get ourselves on black beach, the first of the three. This beach is made up of black sand. We spent a few hours there and moved along to the next beaches throughout the day. We decided to visit red beach last which gave us the option to walk back to the bus stop along the hills, giving us amazing views of the beach behind us.
