Sunsets and Santorini

Yesterday, after an 8 hour boat ride, we finally arrived in Santorini. Santorini is the most southern island that we will visit during this trip, and is also probably the most famous. It is an island that many flock to to get married or spend their honeymoon, or simply to experience the famous sunset. Santorini is also the epitome of a Greek postcard, with its white and blue buildings and abundance of bougainvillea.

We checked into our hotel and then spent the rest of the afternoon in the pool, to refresh ourselves and relax after the long journey. Later in the evening we explored Fira, the main town on the island and the one that we are staying in. We then had a Greek meze dinner whilst watching the sunset. Apparently the Greeks clap when the Santorini sun sets, so we all had to clap too, which I think other tourists found slightly odd!

I'm loving Greece so far, and one of the best parts is definitely the food. The feta cheese is incredible and the gyros that we ate last night was delicious.
