Why do I live in Italy?

I think I get asked this question about 10 times a week. First comes the typical question of "Where do you come from?". And then almost instantly after I say Australia, the next question is always "You come from Australia? Wow, why do you live in Italy then?".


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.
