Destination of Choice: Athens, Crete, Santorini
The trip was great, our favourite island is Santorini, we loved the food , the people, the architecture, the scenery of Santorini and vow to return to this beautiful Greek island someday!
Overall, the trip was great and a large part of that was due to Santorini. If you go by the number of pictures we took, we took 2000+ pictures and close to 2000 pictures were taken on Santorini so you can get a good sense that there is a lot to see on Santorini and because we like it so much, we took a lot of pictures. Although quite a bit of the Santorini pictures were repeated shots of caldera sunset scene but that’s because the sunset scene was simply magnificent.
We loved the Acroplis in Athens, the transit lounge at the airport, the scenery and monastries at Meteora, our hotel in Crete, lunch with a harbour view of the old Venetian Port in Heraklion.
In Santorini, the food, Oia, Pygros village, ceramic souvenirs of traditional santorini houses, churches and windmills (candle holders), fava beans that go very well with grilled seafood, Megalochori village, driving in santorini, dinner at Captain Dimitris at Ammoudi in Oia, catamaran cruise, private black sun beach that belongs to Mystique, Oia village, caldera sunset were all memorable.
