When most people think of Italy, one of the first cities that comes to mind is Venice. And, rightly so. Venice is every bit as beautiful, magical and unique as you imagine it to be and it's definitely one for the bucket list.


An overview of Santorini

IMG_4366 So I’m going to start this post off by being totally up front with you. Since living in Europe, I’ve actually put off visiting Santorini. Always opting to spend our summers exploring countries that had a little more action and sight seeing like Croatia. Shocking, I know! But I genuinely thought that despite the caldera views, Santorini didn't have much to offer aside from overpriced food and overcrowded sunsets.Unlike most first timers in Santorini, I opted to stay in Imerovigli as opposed to Oia. Mainly because I found a decent deal on what looked like a great hotel and secondly, given that we were going in June I was hoping to stay away from the Oia crowds.
