Europe - Santorini, Greece


Well happy Wednesday y'all! Tonight, I bring to you... Santorini. By far, without a doubt my favourite place in all of Europe! Yes, I know that sets the bar high, but here is why: The people, and, the food!
From the minute I stepped foot on this island, I didn't want to leave, and it was because of the people, and that is number one in my books! The food was number two - always having fresh seafood, greek salads, gyros, dolmades and a total greek favourite - stuffed peppers and tomatoes! Hubba hubba! I feel like I was searching Europe for extra healthy food with a variety of vegetables, and Greece was the place for it! I can't speak more highly of this country, and Santorini just does it every time I visit. Here are some things you CANNOT miss doing in Santorini:

1. Renting and 4-wheeler and driving from side to side. Anywhere you want to go on the island will average you about 20-30 minutes via 4-wheeler, and filling up your tank is affordable and easy!

2. Check out the famous Red Sand Beach, but spend most of your time at Black Sand Beach aka. Perissa Beach. Visit here for more beach spots.

3. Use your 4-wheeler and head north to Oia, the famous spot to watch the sunset. But you have to arrive early, especially in the high season as it will be very packed with tourists. If you want something more intimate with the sunset, and want to skip the crowd, eat at the famous Mexican Restaurant Senor Zorba just outside of Fira. Cannot miss it!

4. The donkey ride in Fira. Here you will climb up the steep streets on a donkey's back. If you don't want to ride up, you need to at least walk up it with the donkeys :)

I recently visited the most helpful website ever and wish I had seen this before my visit to Santorini. It provides so much information!!
