THE SIGHTS AND SOUNDS OF GREECE!!

I unconsciously saved the best destination for the last of my trips in 2016. I knew I wanted to get away to considerably warmer temperatures for Christmas but I couldn’t decide where. Santorini, Greece was top of my list for summer 2017 but random searches looking for holiday destinations lead me on to blogs which drew my attention to the Island being quiet and calm during the winter months. Searching for serenity and relaxation, I knew this was a great choice!. I took the opportunity to spend one night in Athens as my connecting flight to Santorini was from there…all the monuments I had read about whilst in school came alive…the Acropolis, the temple of the Olympian Zeus, the Parthenon just to name a few. In Santorini, I discovered 3 beautiful towns and a volcano. Check out all the highlights below!x
