For the first time in my 22 years of travel, I went to a country where I know absolutely NONE of the language. Not even the alphabet. Thankfully, it was Santorini, Greece which is quite touristy with many English speakers; a good way to ease into even more exotic lands in the future. We traveled the whole island on four wheelers, eating some of the most delicious food in the world (literally). Oh what I would do for a garlic-y gyro with a side of Greek yogurt right now. Unanimously, the best day of the trip was spent on a boat hopping islands. Santorini is interesting because the actual land is a bit of an eye sore. It is basically just desert.. desert surrounded by crystal clear bodies of water. What makes it so beautiful is the architecture of  white buildings against blue doors & roofs. From the cliff you can see almost every blue door bouncing around the islands blending with the turquoise swimming pools and deep seas. For 4 euros each, we got a bottle of coke and a day at one of the hotel’s swimming pool. Best 4 euros ever spent! What can be better than the most beautiful sights with good friends and obsession-worthy food? Grecian sunsets. Holy. cow. The rest of Greece is on the top of our list of to-go’s.. I wonder why? 🙂

  1. One of my dearest friends long ago was a greek woman who was an artist. I often posed for her lifesize sculpture and I was fed the most wonderful Greek food. She passed away shortly after she came back from living in Santorini.So on my 1st trip after retiring I went there to toss a wreath on her behalf. I also loved the island and so enjoyed your description of your visit there.
