We spent the last five days of our honeymoon in Santorini, which is every bit as beautiful as you imagine it will be.
We started off in Thira, which was the most bustling town of everywhere we stayed on the island – it felt touristy, but not completely overrun yet. It was here that Adam discovered gyros, and afterwards we ate them every day until the end of our honeymoon. Because we’re fancy, we spent some of our wedding dollas and got an amazing, in-room couples massage (without a doubt the most “honeymoon” thing we did all trip).
We moved from Thira to Imerovigli (which I still cannot pronounce) – one of the highest points on the island with sweeping views of the caldera. We stayed in an Airbnb that had an unbelievable balcony overlooking the sea (though definitely had the least glamorous interior of all our rentals). We didn’t get great weather on our trip, and it rained off and on for the most of our stay in Imerovigli. We even got red rain, which happens only a few times a year and literally covers all the whitewashed homes in a red chalk.
Prior to our dirty-day-drinking experience in Paros, we had signed up for a wine tour and cooking class (one of my favorite things to do when traveling). We didn’t do too much wine tasting (our stomachs were still refusing alcohol), but we did get our money’s worth on the eating part (obviously).
Before we moved to Oia- the last stop on our honeymoon- we visited the ancient town of Akrotiri then took public transportation (because we’re so glam) to our little villa. We spent the next 2 days exploring, swimming in Amoudi Bay, hiding from the flash rain storms, eating gyros and ice cream cones, and enjoying newlywed bliss.
