Santorini, the magical blue and white Island

Hi peeps!

How is your summer going? 
This post is referring back to my holidays in Greece. Do you remember my trip to the Greek Islands? I spoke to you about Crete (link HERE ) which is the largest Greek Island but Santorini is the most touristy one.  The population of Santorini numbers  11,000 people but every year more than 500,000 tourists visit the island.



We arrived to Santorini by ferry. Santorini is approximately 70 nautical miles from Crete.
I recommend to visit the two main villages, Fira and Oía. Both are really  beautiful.




Santorini is a volcanic island, the entire centre of the circular island sank into the sea during the tremendous volcanic explosion 3.500 years ago, this was one of the most violent known eruptions of its type, causing the centre of the island to collapse into the now-empty caldera. The sea rushed in to fill it, leaving only the present, crescent-shaped island above water
























Tourism is the main occupation in Santorini today.  In the summer, thousands of visitors come to the island, life takes place in the open air, and the locals work non-stop. When winter comes, everything goes quiet and nearly empty. In the spring, before the tourists start to arrive again, the island is a hive of activity as nearly the entire island is repainted and freshened up.
                                 

Wedding celebrations while a local is re painting the surfaces















Here one more but very different striped dress, this was from Zara (old), the second dress is from American Eagle and the hat from a Greek market.


Being so touristy, I guess many of you have already visited the pretty island of Santorini, if you have not, I hope my post helps you to know better this fantastic place.

Thanks again for your lovely comments! xxx

Santorini is so picture perfect, it's impossible not to love that place and not to want to go there.

Santorini is a beautiful island, indeed!
But actually all the islands that belong to the Cyclades complex (of islands) are amazing.
You fell in love immediately with that blue (sky, sea) & white (house's architecture) combination that exist in every Cycladic island ;)

That is amazing. I've never looked at Santorini being such a tourist hub, that it kind of shuts down in winter when everyone leaves.

hi friends thanks for this blog

I travel to Morocco as last year
Amazing experience, our group got picked up from the bus station and we were taken to the hotel/camel area. We had a room and left our stuff there before heading out to the desert on camels. Said and his friends took us to different hut areas in the desert, it was amazing. Life changing experience to see the sunset and stars, ride camels, and spend about 24 hours in the desert.
