Greece, Santorini, Travel

Anchors away

I don’t know if I’ve been watching too much Bachelorette, but our last day on Santorini, now that I look back, was the perfect “Bachelorette” date. We took a sunset cruise, full of mini excursions and romantic moments.

We boarded our Pirates of the Caribbean ship and took sail for Santorini’s volcanic crater {center}. In case I haven’t mentioned it, I LOVE volcanoes. So much that I toyed with the idea of studying them {for a very brief moment}.

The boys!

This is Mandy, my girlfriend on the boat:

Next stop – swimming in the hot springs.

Wine and snackies:  

And then the sunset:
We kissed and snuggled as the sun went down. It was the perfect ending to an amazing trip. Now tell me that doesn’t sound like The Bachelorette? {I’m watching it as I write this}

This marks the end of our Greece vacation! About time, right? I can’t wait to go back to Europe. All I can think about is where to go next. Thinking London and Ireland! Planning for Spring 2013!

Black sand

The beaches here in Cali are pretty fabulous – but nothing compares to the black beach on Santorini. Here are a few pics from our morning on Perivolos in Santorini. And yes, I did take some of the volcanic sand home ;)







Hottest sand I’ve ever walked on! What’s the most bizarre beach you’ve been to? My last post on Greece is coming next! Tear** {’bout time, right?}

Donkey ride in Oia

I have a few posts left on Greece still to get up but wanted to share this first. Our 2nd day on Santorini was spent in Oia and before I get you all the details, here are some pics from our donkey ride. It was definitely on my list of things to do on the island and laughed the entire way up. It was so much fun!




These girls were hilarious.


And now for the video…
