The most romantic sunset in the world @ OIA, Santorini

Hi people :) finally I’m gearing up with my laptop and decided to write my travel’s journey again. Hahaha…..it’s been a while and I’m kinda of miss it. Anyway I’m going to write down my holiday journey to the land of Zeus, the magnificent country with beautiful and rich culture and history…..Greece. This year we’re planning to come here coz we really want to get up close and personal with the jewel of Greece, Santorini.

We came from Singapore and we arrived at Athens int’l Airport around 7.30 am and continued our journey to Santorini by Aegean Air. It was tiring journey thru out the flight (after almost 18 hour travelling time plus transit time) before we finally reached this amazing place. Santorini is one of the most popular destinations for honey-mooners. It’s known all over the world for its unique natural beauty. The caldera with the white villages on top donned with blue rooftop, the sunken volcano and the amazing sunset make it a popular place to be.

After touching down…..we rested for a while in our amazing hotel at Perivolous….which slightly located at the southern part of the island. The hotel has an amazing view of the beach and u will wake up every morning facing this great view. Well…..yesterday we started off our journey from the village of Oia. We had our fabulous dinner at the Rocca. NY times and trip advisor recommend the restaurant. It served Greek homemade cuisine and we tried mushroom with sweet visanto….and it was super duper yummy!!!! The prawn cooked with ouzo is really finger-licking good too. The taste of the beef with red wine sauce is fantastic too. The dinner was serenaded with the view to die for. It was really an amazing experience for both of us.

After dinner we headed up to Oia….for its sunset. Oia has the most romantic sunset in the world. Because it’s summer here…the sun only set after 7.45pm-8pm, so we had time to stroll around the village before witnessing the most beautiful sunset in the whole world. After the sunset we strolled around the Caldera. Oia seduces visitors with her picturesque yposkafa where residences carved onto the rock, narrow paths and imposing Caldera. We ended our day by hanging around eating gelato ice cream in one of the small café near the Caldera.

It was one of the most beautiful day we had in our lives and we really celebrate it. In my heart, I'm really grateful for all His blessings upon us. Well…..i’ll continue our journey in a bit….Today we’re planning to go the Fira the central city of Santorini, so stay tuned guyzzz !!! :)

We are driving cute smart car :)
