„I hope that you realize that every day is a fresh start for you. That every sunrise is a new chapter in your life waiting to be written.“ ~ Juansen Dizon
While I was staying on Santorini, the most magical Greek island you can imagine, I literally woke up early in the morning every day because I didn’t want to miss a single sunrise. The light was soft and orange, while the wind was mildly blowing. In these moments I felt so related to the island and contentment filled my mind.
The white houses with blue doors and red flowers along the streets create an atmosphere that is so peaceful and innocent – seems to be like a place where you can truly leave all your sorrows behind and refocus on yourself.
Visiting the Red Beach was fascinating because of the precipitous cliff. As you can see many visitors were attracted by this place and so the tiny bay was slightly overfilled. But the clear turquoise water compensated that and swimming here was an unbelievable experience. Just seeing all the colours of the ocean had a refreshing effect on me.
The village Oia, which is located in the North of Santorini, provides a wonderful panorama over the coast. It is unbelievable breathtaking how far you can see. The buildings are constructed very close to the crater’s edge and that makes the view even more overwhelming.
„Sunsets, like childhood, are viewed with wonder, not just because they are beautiful, but because they are fleeting.“ ~ Richard Paul Evans
The highlight of a trip to Oia definitely is watching the sunset from a spot that allows you to observe the full panorama. I can promise, after experiencing such an amazing sunset, you will feel completely revitalized.
„At night, when the sky is full of stars and the sea is still you get the wonderful sensation that you are floating in space.“ ~ Natalie Wood
Fira is the main village of Santorini and convinces visitors with an old harbour, museums and the event of mules walking the trail which is composed of 588 stairs.
I really hope that my blogpost inspired you to think about arranging a trip to Santorini. I can affirm that you will not regret your decision.
