[Santorini] Oia

with one comment

The Greek islands, and Santorini in particular, are on many people’s bucket list of must-visits. After spending a few days there myself, I can see what the fuss is about: with the magnificent Aegean Sea as backdrop, rows of white houses cascade down the coast, their pure white punctuated only by blue-domed churches and bouganville flowers in full bloom. All this is made even more dreamy by the “most beautiful sunset in the world”…

Keeping Santorini white since 1989.

An hour or even two before sunset, people star settling down along the steps for the view. The castle is supposed to be the best sunset-viewing spot, but there are plenty of other nice places along Oia, so don’t break you head trying to squeeze in to that tiny surface.

The sunset aftermath: everyone tries to get out of the town, resulting in major traffic jam.

Worth it? Once in a life time, why not :)
