Oia pronounced as Eeyah is the prettiest and the most sophisticated village in the island of Santorini. Situated on an impressive cliff about 150 metres above sea-level, it offers a spectacular view of the sea and a glimpse of the caldera. It was an affluent mariner’s town which was part of the trade route between Russia and Alexandria during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The economy of the town de

So you decided to visit the most beautiful place in the world (according to myself) for your holiday but you’re wondering if Santorini is really as expensive as they say it is?

Santorini together with its equally popular Cyclades island sister Mykonos are the two most expensive places you can go to in Greece, that’s why most of the Gree

Santorini, You’re Still As Breathtaking As You Were Five Years Ago.

July 19, 2016
As we were planning my first holiday to Greece five years ago, I begged The Greek Mister (who was then the boyfriend) to include Santorini in our itinerary. Most Greeks who I’ve met aren’t big fans of this very famous island because it’s too commercialized, too expensive, it doesn’t represent the real Greece and the beaches are crap compared to the other islands. I think they hate the fact t

Things To Do in Santorini: Witness The Much-Awaited Sunset

April 6, 2014
Oia, Santorini
Oia, Santorini Before I went to Santorini, I have encountered “watch the sunset” numerous times as one of the things that I really really must do while there. People have their own different approach to it and some do take it rather seriously. One blogger even had to climb on one of those white houses, over its roof an hour before the sun sets to have the most spectacular view. Passionate bloggers will

Things To Do in Santorini: Be Amazed By The Beauty of Oia

Oia Santorini
When the boyfriend and I started planning our very first Greek vacation 3 years ago, I have made it a point to go to Santorini which is at the very top of my bucket list. The boyfriend didn’t want to go there because according to him,  a true-blooded Greek, Santorini is just a tourist trap put there in the map of Greece to fool the tourists. I of course told him that I don’t think it’s the case a
