Over the last year or two I have been to some amazing places. All of them I loved way too much to not talk about on my blog, so let's start off with one of my favourite places in the world, Santorini.
Santorini has always been somewhere I have been desperate to visit, the white cliff side buildings and beautiful sunsets are so well known and so commonly photographed that I felt I just needed to see it for myself and see if it lived up to the beautiful images all over Google image search, and boy it did not disappoint!
I went twice last year, the first time in May and the second time in September. I didn't plan to go twice, but as soon as we got home after the first time, we went straight online and re-booked for another week later in the year because we loved it so much! I went with two friends and both times we went we stayed in the area of Kamari. It has a long black sand beach, which by the way, is SO painful to walk on. Imagine walking on millions of broken shells and that exactly what it felt like! It's that bad they actually sell special shoes that look like crocs for people to wear when they walked along it! I wasn't wearing crocs tho so I just put up with the pain, no pain no gain as they say!
Albatros and Ethnic Bar where definitely our favourites! We were there every night making the most of the cocktails! And if your looking to have the nicest strawberry Daiquiri you will ever taste then look no further than Prince Bar and Restaurant, you will not be disappointed!
Greek food is a firm favourite of mine anyway but the food in Santorini was some of the best food I have ever tasted! If you eat in Oia it can be quite pricey but I had one of the nicest meals I've ever had there in a restaurant we visited called Sunset Restaurant. We just stumbled on this because we were looking for somewhere to sit down to watch the sunset and when we sat down they told us to keep our table we would have to order food as the demand for tables is so high. We ate while we watched the sunset which was just like a dream (and when I cried haha) and I can honestly say it was one of the best meals I've ever eaten. The food in Kamari is much more reasonably priced and every meal I had was delicious and cooked to perfection. The people in Santorini are some of the nicest people you could ever meet as well. We met some amazing people over there who were so welcoming, kind and made us feel like we were celebrities!
I think about going back to Santorini and the amazing time I had there every single day and I can't wait until the day I set foot on my Island in the Sun again! Until we meet again Santorini...
