Things I Love Thursday: Santorini, Baby!

Things I Love Thursday

We have only been in Santorini for two nights and already we feel irrevocably changed. It’s all about whitewashed everything, cobblestone streets, eternal staircases and the bluest oceans we’ve ever seen. I have wanted to come to the Greek Islands for such a long time and it is absolutely everything I thought it’d be… And then some. Photos can’t even come close to capturing the intense beauty of this island. It is absolutely incredible.

Of course, it helps to be visiting with two of my best friends ever. This trip has already been unbelievably different to our usual pitstops: with extremely spotty internet access, we’ve been forced to let go of the reins of social media and actually exist. God, it is so great.

Mostly, we’ve been spending a lot of time on our terrace, lurking under umbrellas and stopping for gelato at every possible moment. Bottled water has become a hot commodity, we’ve been wearing white every day and making plans to go on boat trips. We’ve eaten our weight in feta cheese, and my legs are practically made of cucumber and tomato at this point. What could be better than that?

In a couple of days, we head to Mykonos for a change of pace. We can’t wait to splash in turquoise pools, lounge on beaches and rock sequin kaftans!
