Our last leg of our European adventure was Santorini (a small island of the coast of Greece). I’ve wanted to visit Santorini for a long time but knew for sure I had to go after watching Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
So in true Cale and Megan fashion we decided to go for it without giving it much of a second thought. After purchasing the tickets (and second thinking things) we realized lounging on the beach for 4 days would probably be what we were craving after scrambling around to catch all of the sights in Rome and Athens.
We stayed at a hotel right on Perissa beach, which is the black sand beach of Santorini (compared to the red or white sand beaches that exist elsewhere). The most famous city, Oia, is where the iconic blue domed buildings are usually photographed although they also exist in other cities across the island.
This was also the only stop where we booked an activity before we left the states. On the last day we took a catamaran tour around the island. So much fun! Although it was the most expensive part of the entire trip we would take the exact same catamaran tour again if we ever go back.
The weather was warm but not hot and the water was cold. The surf on days 1-3 was quite high but it made for a beautiful couple of days of walking around and laying on the beach. Of our entire trip to Europe this would be one stop that we would go back to just to relax.
And eat Greek food.
I’m telling you people, we couldn’t get enough.
That, in short, wraps up our dream vacation to Europe. I told Cale I feel old now since that has been my dream vacation since… I don’t even know when, and now it’s over. And I’m old.
Time to start dreaming our our next grand adventure….
