First and foremost, I’d like to apologize for being MIA. I was experiencing some technical difficulties when I switched my domain from .net to .com.
HUGE THANKS to Jesse Michelsen for fixing this and for being so patient with me while he was doing so.
If you haven’t already checked out my last couple of posts at Suburban finance about going paperless and how restaurants try to add extra charges to your bill without you knowing, do it now! 🙂
Santorini is considered to be the most beautiful island of the Greek Islands, but I ‘m sure all of them are beautiful in their own way. It’s not very big and you could rent a car (you can also rent ATVs and scooters) and explore the majority of the island in a day, which is what we did. Rather than island hopped, we beach hopped on the island. One beach that was a bit of a trek/climb to get to was Red Beach.A Stunning View of the Red Beach in Santorini
That same day, we drove to Oia, which is considered the best town to see a sunset. The sunset wasn’t anything spectacular (on super clear days, the entire sky can get really red, or so I’ve been told), but it was still nice to sit outside and watch.One of many sunset photos taken in Oia
Here are some photos of Oia taken after the sun went down.
So much better seeing it live than on a postcard
All the photos posted on my blog were taken with my Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS Digital Elph 14.1 mega pixel camera. While a point and shoot digital camera is good for most shots, I felt a camera with a wider angle zoom lens would have been better for scenery shots (unfortunately, within the 4 years I’ve had my camera, it’s been dropped a few times.)Those types of cameras seem to be better for scenic travelling. This has got to be the third trip I’ve been on where I wished I had a better camera. Maybe it’s time for an upgrade.
Or time for a birthday present request. 😉
