DREAMING OF PARADISE: TAKE ME TO THE GREEK ISLAND OF SANTORINI

There are sooo many magical places all over the world and some, once you’ve visited, may leave you wanting. There is one place that I can almost guarantee that will not disappoint. Not that I’ve ever been there but judging on all of my friends’ travel experiences and everything I read in books and online – Santorini is exactly how you picture it to be. Lush blue waters against the striking white dome that’s been very much the visual identity of the Greek Island.

What more can a girl ask for? Okay, maybe shopping.

STAY IN YOUR OWN PRIVATE VILLA IN OIA, SANTORINI

Seriously though, how gorgeous and awe-inspiring is Greece? Big Hollywood movies like Mama Mia, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life makes me forget about the plot lines as the stunning island scenery is enough to take your breath away. While it’s not currently in the cards for us to travel to Greece, which will coincidentally include Turkey (when the time comes, I’m still hoping to fly VIP with Turkish Airlines. A girl can dream, non?) as we are scheduled to fly to Germany and France this week, I just want to out it out there in the universe – I want to travel to Greece please.SANTORINI 7

STAY IN YOUR OWN PRIVATE VILLA IN OIA, SANTORINI

Imagine waking up to this – God’s gift to mankind. With the bluest of blue waters, the warm Mediterranean sun, the fresh seafood everyday and just that feeling of time standing still. No pressing e-mails to answer to, no tweets or Instagram to posts and Facebook to update (I didn’t say this was a true story… that’s why the blog title was DREAMING…) in your own private villa. There’s this villa renting agency called Home Away, much like AirBnB, which rents out magnificent private villas, mansions, all sorts of various accommodations for holiday rentals. There’s this one private villa in particular that is so captivating, it would be a dream to stay there. Aside from the fabulously Greek-perfect interiors, the panoramic views of the volcano, the neighboring volcanic islets and the legendary sunsets form an experience beyond your imaginations.

IF YOU CAN GO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD YOU GO?

One day, someday, which I hope means soon… I will pack my bags and I’ll be ready to go. I’ll be leaving on a jet plane on my way to Greece and ride a donkey up and down the cobble stone streets of Santorini, watch the sunset go down the Mediterranean Sea (that is the sea that surrounds the island, is it not? I haven’t googled!).

Plus I always wanted to try authentic Greek Yoghourt, in Greece. And I don’t even like Yoghourt.

What about you, where is your dream vacation? If you can go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
