here are more photos from my first day at fira. it was so exciting to finally see those white walled buildings in person. against these white walls, are the aegean blue, pops of primary colors, and the vibrant bougainvilleas. touristy or not, santorini really does have its own unique aesthetic. i will let the photos do the talking.
i’ve been gathering, logging, summarizing all the little details and photos from my santorini trip in april, 2017. here i’ve linked to each page, all in one post so you can come back here to check out the details in order (or out)! it’s really a lot of information, so i’ve tried to keep it as organized as possible. i recommend reading in the order listed, but if you need specific information please skip the nitty gritty and enjoy as you wish =)
P.S. there are many similar names of cities that might get confusing. santorini is the entire collection of islands in the caldera, which was originally one island of santorini. over the years, after multiple eruptions and earthquakes, parts of the island had sunken to create separate islands. THIRA is the biggest crescent shaped island of santorini. FIRA, located on THIRA is the capital of santorini. ANCIENT THERA are ruins located on the mountain in between kamari and perissa.
