The first stop on our full-day tour of the island was in the old village of Mesagonia. This bike looks like it’s been here as long as the village itself!

Still in Mesagonia – what a beautifully overgrown door. Don’t think it gets used too often!

The entrance to one of Santorini’s old castles in the town of Pyrgos. Most of the castles were destroyed in the devastating earthquake of 1956, but some of the walls still remain.

Some of the lovely ladies from our group exploring the views Pyrgos has to offer.

Amazing views to the north of the island from Pyrgos castle.

The churches of Santorini have become so iconic, simply because they are absolutely beautiful to look at.

Imagine if that was your front door; wouldn’t you just be so proud.

Needless to say, we sampled some of the wines Santorini had to offer…

Views just don’t get much better than that…

The last stop on our full-day tour had to be Oia, pronounced ‘eeya’, this place is known for it’s spectacular sunsets. You will have seen them on Instagram.

Making our way to the old Venetian castle at the northern most part of the island to catch the sunset, and spotted this incredible view on the way!

This is everything. I cannot get enough of those windmills. You can actually stay in one of those bad-boys (although we are sure this comes at a colossal price). Rumour has it, the windmill ‘villa’ is the most popular place on the island for marriage proposals. Go figure.

And there it is… one of the most famous sunsets in the world. You have to admit, it’s incredibly picturesque.

The next day, we spent the morning exploring the island’s capital, Thira.

photo diary: santorini

As you can see, Thira is just as beautiful as anywhere on the island. Just look at that view!

photo diary: santorini

It really is incredible. Even these photos don’t do the beauty of this place justice.

Next time, we want to stay in that beautiful cliff side villa with the swimming pool please.

These are pretty much the colours of Santorini; blue, white and pink.

I mean, can you even imagine.

That’s more like it.

And if the sign says so, it must be true.

Another shot of Oia. Honestly, you have to spend a day in this place, it is just so beautiful.

Delicious dips at my absolute favourite Mezze Restaurant, Melitini – try it!

photo diary: santorini

Such a well-decorated restaurant… you can tell someone has put a lot of effort into making it this good, and the best part is, it was the cheapest meal we had all holiday.

photo diary: santorini

And one day, I will eat here.

So that’s it guys! Hope you enjoyed flicking through our photos, and I really hope I have inspired you to go and visit this beautiful island, it really is as good as it looks. See you soon for more photo diary fun!
