Santorini is the most beautiful place on earth. There I said it!
I have spent the whole week deliberating whether it could possibly contend with the picturesque snow peaked mountains of Iceland and the vast landscape of the Grand Canyon and then I got caught in an unexpected downpour in Oia and I knew it was the one.
It was one of those moments that could have been sealed with a kiss, in fact I half expected Ryan Gosling to swan round the corner saying “Hey Girl, wanna re-enact scenes from the Notebook?”, “Um do you even need to ask?!”– I’m sorry, but I would pick that famous rainy scene over the Dirty Dancing lift any day.
Ahem – moving swiftly on! Oia is such a beautiful village and the crisp white buildings with pops of blue and pink are an Instagrammer’s dream. In fact, I went a little nuts trying to capture everything in sight.
I can’t really put into words how magnificent Oia really is, so I thought that I would create a little photo diary to give you a taster. After all pictures are worth a thousand words.
It’s fair to say that Santorini has rightfully claimed a piece of my heart. Have you ever been somewhere so breathtakingly beautiful?
