Hey guysss, hope you all are staying safe and healthy. Whether we like it or not, we know that there won’t be any travelling for everyone over the next few months.
Thanks to the internet along with tourist reviews, that even without travelling to these places myself, I have attempted to give you a virtual travel experience of some of the most beautiful, aesthetic places on Earth and will continue to do the same during the next few weeks. Enjoy!
Καλώς ήλθατε στη Σαντορίνη(Welcome to Santorini), the most insanely beautiful island of the Cyclades(a group of islands in the Aegean Sea), crafted naturally and built above an underwater caldera(crater) as a result of the 16th century B.C. volcanic eruption.
Fira is the capital of Santorini. A tourist-filled village, best for nightlife enthusiasts who enjoy shopping, hanging out, eating, or drinking. Most of the restaurants here are specially made for tourists with over 200 hotels and a beautiful view of the caldera. The village’s specialty also involves a peaceful boat ride which takes the tourists through the refreshing waters of the Aegean Sea to the volcano and active craters. Take a walk throughout Fira, capture memories and you are good to go.
Moving on to Oia, the aesthetically pleasing village awaits you. It always makes you wanna have your camera out and snap a picture as you glide through the curvy streets and vintage staircases of Oia. Famous for its eye-catching white houses, white-washed walls and, majestic blue domes, this village is an epitome of iconic Greek architecture. Explore the hidden, unexplored stairways and paths of Oia and while you’re at it don’t forget to get a few pictures for your social handles.
Experience architectural beauty while grabbing a smoothie or coffee or their staple food on the way. Go to Passaggio cafe to have the best coffee and the most aesthetic pictures ever, Lolita’s Gelato for the best ice-cream, PyraGyros for the best Kebabs, and numerous bakeries for the syrupy, sweet specialty i.e. Baklava.
Don’t miss out on the donkey ride which takes you around the winding alleys, crafty windmills of Oia village, and Amoudi Bay which gives you a view of unique volcanic landscapes and islets. To peacefully end a pleasingly-eventful day in this village, go hike up to the Oia castle or get aboard a sailing cruise to witness an unforgettable golden sunset.
A few minutes drive from Oia lies the village of Perissa which is home to two naturally created, attractive beaches, the Red Rock Beach and the Black Sand Beach. Their names do pull you in like gravity.
Last but definitely not the least, do spend the last night of your trip on top of a cliff and catch a view of the after-sunset, blue hour Santorini.
Στην υγειά σας !! ( Cheers!!)
Stay home, stay safe((:
