I left my heart in Santorini

 EightSixty Top from Violet Hill Boutique, Zara shorts, Marc Jacobs bag

After visiting the beautiful island of Santorini, I can honestly imagine packing up my life and moving into a little white-washed house nested on top of the cliffs. There really is nothing quite like it. We arrived at the old harbour and took an exhilarating donkey ride up 587 steps to the principal town of Fira. The boy and I loved every moment of it! After a 20 minute ride on windy roads, we finally arrived at the magical village of Oia. To no surprise, the stunning cliff-perched town and the aegean sea took my breath away! We walked up and down and up and down the zigzag pathways and found one amazing view after another. For that panoramic 'money shot', the boy went a little too close to the edge of the cliff than I'm comfortable with. The photos were well worth it in the end and they now have a permanent spot as my desktop wallpaper. I'll be gazing into them and daydreaming about our next visit, real soon I hope!

Ugh, these pictures are just too beautiful for words. Santorini is one of the places I want to visit, so this post made me think that vacation fund needs to be more of a priority.

Thanks for sharing and glad to hear that you loved it!

I'm so glad you liked my country! I have visited Santorini in the past and it's indeed one of the most beautiful islands. I really hope I can visit it again in the future.

These photos! All I can think about looking at them is how soon I can possibly get to Santorini - because travelling there is definitely no longer an option :) The colours are absolutely stunning. You must have had the most amazing time while you were there. So glad to have discovered your blog through my friend Alex from To Vogue of Bust. I love meeting new Vancouver bloggers - I'll definitely be sifting through your archives tonight. And visiting your etsy shop!

These pictures are just WOW! My boyfriend and I might have to rethink our holiday destination this year because thanks to these gorgeous images, I've got nothing but white buildings, blue seas and donkey rides on my mind! I'm stopping by from Alex's blog after seeing her feature your beautiful LOVE COCO bracelet. I'm a sucker for pearls and am looking forward to checking out your Etsy shop and entering the giveaway above. Wishing you a wonderful weekend! XO
