Total bliss Santorini, Greece
I’m so so so excited to share our dreamy 4 blissful days in Santorini, Greece with you! Let’s just say I went photo crazy! Yes. It’s still possible for photographers to totally freak out over images even if it’s their full time job!
This is my how and my why.
As a creative myself, photography lives and breathes in my everyday life. I get a complete rush traveling with my cam in my handbag, oh yes, it fits! I’m a simple gal who likes simple things. Easy things! My fav lens to travel with is my 50 mm 1.4 , it’s light and gets all those detailed wow shots! BUT. My 24-70 was the bomb for Santorini. How can you not capture each and every building at its entire size?
Greece has always been my baby. Close to my heart but far from my sight as destinations like California and Asia/Turkey had me. It was time to live the dream that I kept to close to my heart for the perfect time in my life and just GO FOR IT. We got amazing deals for April as it’s out of season, AKA photographer’s dreams without too many tourists hanging about. We stayed at the cutest hotel Aghios Artemios that’s remote to all things busy, the way we like it! Traditional Greek houses covered in white and blue paint with the most welcoming presence like in all of Santorini.
5 Tips to make your holiday to Santorini as smooth as possible.
-Travel in September for the best vibe suggested by locals as this is when high season ends but still warm enough!
-Hike up Skaros rock for an epic view of Imerovigli town and to work off those feta cheese calories!
-Hire a quad to get around easily for as little as €20 a day and gas is soooo cheap.
-Stay at least for 3 days to experience the town of Oia, Fira and Pyrgos and a whole day just soaking it all in at your hotel.
-Eat calamari, Greek yogurt and the Santorini greek salad till your hearts content!
That’s it for now, until my next mini adventure.

Beautiful shots! When it comes to great photo opportunities, there’s nowhere better than Santorini. And off-season is a great time to visit. Less crowds but still amazing 🙂
Thank you Nick! We will be returning to Santorini this August to explore even more!
