We arranged for the private tour full day tour of Athens. Our guide was also our driver. He was punctual, knowledgeable and worked with us on what we wanted to see. This trip covers the main tourist spots in Athens. The driver also has front of the line passes that we bought from him for ( 30 euros per person) so we could bypass the lines at all major attractions
Our last and final stop- the Plaka. It’s the bustling city center- the heart of Athens. Lots of alleys and byways you can get lost in. Cobbled streets, coffee shops, souvenirs…
Santorini-50 shades of blue
Santorini has been on our bucket list for as long as I can remember . We were there for 3 days and each day is bringing a different hue of blue.
We took a flight out of Athens, a really short one and there are multiple flights a day.
Santorini has a number of small towns- the most popular one being Oia- the home of the big blue dome
When in Oia, do as Oians do.
We booked our Cycladic home through Air BNB. These homes are mostly studios of different sizes. The architecture is called-Cycladic- it’s really a harmonious mix of white cubic houses, cobblestone streets, pristine windmills, and ubiquitous blue-domed churches.

I am always a fan of your writings ( you amazed me with your beautiful pictures as well!) and I must say you have a nice sense of humor. Keep writing and next time plan for traveling together!

Chumki enjoyed reading your travel musings… took me back to our family trip to Santorini years ago. Loved your observation to details and your artistic vision captured by your absolutely beautiful pics.
Keep traveling and keep writing💕
