Crete honeymoon, take 1.

A few of my favorite things…

… finding sweet Avli amongst a maze of multiple century-old row houses after an adventurous boat ride… our first meal there of pork & plums in front of the cave-like wine cellar… exploring the neighboring castle on the windiest day… having our own car, we lovingly nicknamed “the shiat”… winding through the shops by day… discovering bakeries, gelato, gyros, and cretan olive oil…

Santorini honeymoon, take 2.

More favorites from Santorini…

… renting a 4 wheeler on a whim and discovering the city of Fira… finding the black rock beaches… lounging poolside… the clip clop of my sandals on the pebble pavement… eating sesame peanuts purchased from a local grocery… wearing bright sundresses… discovering delicious saganaki… and finally, leaving on a catamaran in the afternoon to begin our next adventure…

A few of my favorite things…

… arriving at nightfall, waking at noon to find the bright caldera just below our massive balcony… a kitty to greet me at one of our many doors… the sweet stray dogs of santorini, taken care of by the locals with bowls of food and water left by entrances to their shops… local wine, olives and cheese lunches… hiking the rim of the caldera as far as we could go, carefully watching our steps and exploring found monasteries… pastel doors and bright pink succulents… the bright white of the houses bouncing off sunlight, cooling off only upon sunset… and dipping my toes into the indescribable blue of the sea.
