honeymoon – santorini.

There are a lot of popular destinations that are over-rated and can’t possibly live up to expectations, but Santorini is not one of them. It delivers. It was more charming and more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I’ve seen hundreds of photos and yet it still felt new and unexpected. Trying to get anywhere with Derek was a challenge because EVERY corner presents the perfect photo opp.

I’m positive that one of the reasons we had such a wonderful experience was because of our accommodations. We stayed in the most charming cave house EVER. The inside was nothing too exciting afterall, it was a house carved into the side of a rock) but the location was unbelievable. We were right in the heart of Oia. And best of all, we had our own private balcony with stunning views. If you ever go to Santorini, I highly recommend staying in Oia rather than Fira. In my opinion, Oia outshines Fira tenfold. This is an island I will never forget. PLEASE GO and see for yourself!

Here are those iconic blue domes of Oia.

If you look at the very bottom/center of this photo, you’ll see me standing on our balcony.

Enjoying our private balcony! Isn’t it beautiful?!?

My husband and I enjoying one of the many restaurants in Oia. If you look to the right of the pole, you’ll see a red/brown cave house. That’s ours! Great location!

This is the little fishing village of Amoudi.  TONS of fresh delicious seafood. I highly recommend taking the stairs down to Amoudi.

Not sure why I look so irritated here. Well, actually I do know why. The stairs from Amoudi are annoying and take forever. And to make matters worse, Derek was drunk and stopped every other step to crack a joke or take a picture. Rough…I know. 🙂
