Postcards from Santorini

Summer is over and I get to wear my new APC wool coat, yippi yey! I got the cat back from our friends and Sammy is a cutie, as always, so life is good. I try to enjoy my afternoons, when I´m not working out with my Personal Trainer (for now, because I dread it so much I´ll be making him a voodoo doll soon enough!), cooking curries and soups and trying to stay away from sweets. 😉 Otherwise I´m getting back to reading, it seems I need to be in the right state of mind to be able to enjoy it and what better than  a comfy blanket, a cup of tea and a scented candle to set the mood right. We´re already planning our next year´s trips, so stay tuned! Meanwhile I walk down on memory lane now and then and today it was Santorini. 😉 Enjoy!

Santorini

I couldn´t wait to share my travel adventures with you! I would have already done it from Santorini (although it might have come across as a bit pathetic!), but the internet connection was rather slow. 😉 First and foremost: Santorini is every bit as wonderful as the travel guides will have you believe! Its picture-perfect appearance greeted me every morning and I really couldn´t believe my luck of waking up to such a sight!

Our first day was very stressful since Vinsanto Villas, where we´d paid for our stay in advance, had double-booked and tried to pass a shitty hotel in the middle of nowhere as an upgrade. That made me so furious I was literally ready to jump on the guy´s face when he calmly told us there´d been a mix-up and besides the hotel was renovated, just not our room! haha! How funny is that?! In the end they moved us to Nomikos Villas in Firostefani (we were supposed to stay in Imerovigli) and covered the difference. The villas themselves had nothing wow over them, but our room was spacious and clean, we had a pool, a bar and air condition. And, best of all, we had our own private balcony with stunning views of the caldera!
