I left my heart in Santorini, literally. I have been blessed to travel to many places in my life but nothing captured my heart more than Santorini.
The white buildings resting on the rocks had this immense sense of calmness and relaxation. The sky was a crystal clear blue and the sun shined from 6am to 9pm; it was magical.
One of my missions on the trip was I knew I had to see donkeys, and when I did I think I might have been too excited. So on one of our days we went on the other side Oia by the dock and my mission was complete, I literally got to see 10 of them but decided not to ride them because I felt bad; needless to say after walking the 1000 foot trail I was quickly regretting my decision. But my husbands mission was complete because he got to jump off a rock 100+ feet into the water.
Some of the cutest parts about Santorini was that there are dogs roaming or sleeping everywhere, all the time, and I am a huge dog lover so it was hard to resist playing with each of them.
I told my husband that when we retire we have to do it in Santorini…it is absolutely to perfect not too.
If I could suggest anyone to go anywhere it would be Santorini. Not only for its pure beauty, but also for the feeling you have each day that you are there. It feels like home and I can say that I have never felt like that in any other place but in Oia.
