Next up are the photos from our trip to Santorini. Neither of us had been to Greece, so this was a major bucket list destination for us both. We decided to stay in the town of Fira versus the more touristy town of Oia, which ended up being a great choice. We were walking distance to Fira but still pretty secluded from the crowds.
We stayed at the Aigialos, the most beautiful hotel nestled on the cliffs of Santorini. We spent much of the week relaxing and enjoying the views from our balcony, so we were very happy that we decided to stay at the Aigialos.Sigalas white wine on our first night, and it was delicious and refreshing. We ended up bringing a few bottles home, but it's never warm enough in SF to enjoy it. :)
Alas, we decided to venture out. :) We put our PADI skills to use and went on a dive excursion one day. We went on a ship wreck dive and then on a shore dive.catamaran tour we took around the island. It was us plus five other couples on a full-day boat tour. We lounged in the sun, snorkeled in the chilly water, drank cool white wine, and ate a feast for lunch. It was one of the best meals from our entire time in Europe.
We took countless photos of the sunsets...
...And of course we took a lot of photos of each other too! :)
This was hands down the most beautiful, magical place either of us has ever been. We can't wait to go back!
