Gorgeous Must-see photos from Santorini, Greece

After scanning thousands (yes, that much) photos, I proudly present to you the pictures from a gorgeous Greek island called Santorini. It has always been the sort of places I want to visit some point in my life, yes it was on my ''100 things to do before dying'' list. Santorini is 5 hours away from Athens by a ferry, and look at the sea, it's so blue!!!!!!! Doesn't it get you excited??

This is a picture of the many villa(s) on the island. I have been warned that as long as you stepped out of the ferry, literally thousand people will flock at you with their signs telling you to stay in their villa, hostel, hotel, whatever. To avoid the surcharge associated with walk-ins, we chose to book our villa through hostelworld.com. It costs us only 10 Euros per night per person, in a private double room!

Another villa near ours, which has a swimming pool, the mountains in the background will make you feel like you're in a desert under a boiling sun. In fact, Santorini came from a volcanic eruption, hence the whole island is a bit steep in terms of landscape, and mountains are quite barren.
Here we arrived at the first and the largest town on Santorini, THIRA (also called FIRA):
This is what Santorini is about: vacation, white and blue houses, sea, and lots of sunshine.
Below are pictures from another town - Oia (pronounced as EEE-AAA).
Basically the white houses with blue domed tops are churches.
I asked myself: how can one feel depressed, anxious and stressful when one lives here?
Watching sunset on a castle in Oia is a must-do.
Some 3-week old kitties in our villa, aren't they cute ?

It's definitely one of the places I will revisit again :D
