After leaving Israel very early this morning for a flight to Athens then to Santorini, we started the last leg of our three and a half week journey. It is a little insane to think that as of this time next week, we will be back in Boston and getting ready to head to the Cape. The trip went by so fast and I honestly don’t know where the time went. I want to say I wish it went slower but I am so happy to finally be in Greece.
I have been dying to come to Greece for a while. I don’t know if it was the scenes in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants or pictures I saw on the internet that got me hooked on it but I have been asking to visit here for years. Now, the time has finally come and we are here in Santorini! As usual, the accommodations were not quite what we were expecting. Take note: suggestions from a family friend can be a tricky move, even if they are pickier than your family.
It’s been a bad pattern so far this trip and I don’t know if we are even going to entertain looking elsewhere since we are only here for four days. My feeling about the room: make it work and enjoy relaxing. This was supposed to be our low-key part of the vacation and I’ll keep that way. It suddenly seems like so little time. When we arrived in London it seemed like we would be in Santorini forever. There is so much to see on the island, at least according to TripAdvisor, so we will probably spend a lot of time exploring but also relaxing. The mood in Santorini is much more chill and laid back than it has been in London or Israel.
The views are totally unreal here. It blows my mind how far we can see from our room. That is one major plus for the hotel. The sky is so blue and the water is equally as bright and it goes on for miles. You don’t see these views every day. That is for sure. I am excited to get out and explore after we catch up on some much needed rest from our very long day of travelling today.
