Santorini (aka paradise)

Our trip to the island of Santorini was in a word, heavenly.  This was the most beautiful, unusual island I have ever been on, and was so worth the 8 hour boat ride from Athens.  Santorini was actually where Mama Mia and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants were filmed (holla!!), so if you’re a fan of those movies, you’ll love these pictures 😉

Fira, the capital city

The view right outside our door

Kalimera beach, aka the "Red Beach"

the looooong hike up to the red beach

church in the town of Oia

Mirrored surfaces are just begging to be photographed 🙂

Breathtaking sunsets every night

They really use donkeys for transportation here!

yes, please, I like this view.

The volcanic part of the island!

The island's mandate is that buildings can only be painted white, blue, pink and yellow. but mostly blue and white 🙂

I kinda loved this door 🙂

oh heyy, ANTM

The ferry ready to take us back to Athens...

We'll be back, Santorini. We'll be back.
