Ah, Greece!

In September, one of my dreams became a reality when Brent and I left for a fantasy vacation to the Greek Isles. I remember my mom gave me a book about Greece ten years ago for a Christmas present and ever since then, I knew I had to go there one day! Well, on September 6th we left for a nine day trip to Mykonos, Santorini and a day in Athens. Although getting to the islands took about thirty hours, all the jet lag in the world was worth the scenery that awaited us. Cobblestone streets, white-washed buildings and blue-domed roofs dotted the landscape of the Greek Isles. But Santorini, ah beautiful Santorini was like living in a postcard. Perched high above soaring cliffs and overlooking a deep blue caldera, the island of Santorini has moved to the top of my list of the most beautiful places in the world (almost tied with Bora Bora). There is a reason why almost everyone we met was either on their honeymoon or getting married there. I have never seen such amazing pink and red sunsets that contrasted with jagged brown cliffs that overlooked the deep, blue water or infinity pools that made it seem like that blue water went on forever. After nine days, I was not ready to say goodbye to sleeping in, yummy gyros, breathtaking views, but above all fun in paradise with my boo. I hope some of the pictures capture the beauty of what we experienced.
