For a September getaway as a couple, Santorini Island in Greece was our chosen destination… we wanted a destination which was peaceful and beautiful with some sunshine in September and Santorini being just a couple of hours away from London made it easier for it to be our chosen location.
Santorini, the prized jewel of the Aegean, consists of a group of islands but one exceptional thing to note is that the whole complex of Santorini islands is still an active volcano! This was one of the trip highlights for me, while the walk up was physically challenging it was well worth it as the best views of the island can be seen from the top.
I would recommend taking the volcano tour, which was absolutely spectacular!
Watching the sunset from Thira was another remarkable moment… yes the sun sets everyday but having a drink or two, with some amazing music playing in the background while viewing the sun set is one of the most beautiful experiences ever.
One item I could not survive without in Santorini was my phone as I needed to capture these moments! I don’t have a personal camera (yet), so my phone was the best accessory for taking pictures. It was also very useful on researching places to go, as this wasn’t done before hand!
Greece was amazing and I would certainly be going back as one thing we really wanted to do but couldn’t due to timing was to get the ferry to Mykonos which is famously known as one of Greeks best party Islands so this will be next on our list! Some Island food
