European Honeymoon [6 of 9]: Santorini, Greece (Part 2)

Photography by Miguel Marino

Part 1 showed photos of our villa in Oia and the town. I recommend staying in Oia if you want to be more removed from the bustle, and plus, the sun sets over Oia and it's the most stunning nightly show. Part 2 is about the the Santorini Caldera, a large volcanic crater that is mostly submerged, which I'll describe below:
  1. Our villa was located by stairs built into a cliff that led down to the Caldera, so we hiked down to be near the bluest of waters.
  2. Birds-eye view from the Castle that overlooked our villa, which is the one on the side of the cliff with the aqua blue swimming pool in the front.
  3. Within the town of Oia; full outfit post here.
  4. On our deck overlooking the incredible view - can never get tired of waking up to that!
  5. We hiked all the way down to the water.
  6. Lunch of freshly caught fish grilled to order, right next to the clear blue waters.
  7. The Aegean Sea is the perfect blue ombre.
  8. Instead of hiking back up, we rode donkeys! It was a jolty ride up the side of a cliff, and Husband was super nervous haha but it was a good experience.
  9. View of the sunset from our deck.
  10. We love you, Santorini!
Destinations before: Paris, Barcelona, Venice, Milan, and Athens. Next destination: Cinque Terre, Italy!

  2. Carolyn, I'm so curious as to how you planned a trip and orchestrated the time in Europe. Your honeymoon must have been amazing!

    I've always longed to travel, but have only ever gone as far as Massachusetts & Texas from Georgia. Any tips or suggestions? How do you plan for packing for something like that?

    1. Hi Carolyn! Thank you for your questions! It's inspired me to write a post about what I've learned from planning this trip - both things we did well and plans that didn't go as anticipated. I'll have it posted in a few weeks and send you the link!

    I've always loved your beautiful travel posts. You have beautiful posts all around- but you always inspire me to get out in the world and start LIVING it. Greece has been at the top of my list for places I want to travel, and I think your post has given me the extra push to start considering it more seriously :) Thank you for sharing your experience with us!
