Left My Heart in Santorini…

Santorini, Greece

Last October I had the incredible opportunity to spend 2 life-changing weeks in Greece.

Santorini, Greece

I went with a friend the last two weeks of October 2016.

Santorini, Greece

At first I was worried about how the weather would be in October…

Santorini, Greece

Would it be too rainy, too cloudy that late in the year?

Santorini, Greece

As you can see, the weather was absolutely amazing!

Santorini, Greece

Not too hot, not too cold, and SO much sun!

Santorini, Greece

Out of the entire 2 weeks, we only had 2 cloudy days.

Our first stop was the stunning island of Santorini.

I’ve always seen pictures of this place, and it’s always been on my bucket list…

But let me tell you, it’s even more amazing in person.

October is a great time to come too, because it’s the end of the season so it’s less crowded.

You can fly or take a ferry to Santorini… we took a flight from Athens on Aegean Airlines.

Where to Stay

Santorini, Greece

We spent three heavenly nights at Ikies Traditional Houses in Oia, Santorini.

Santorini, Greece

Honestly one of the most romantic places I have ever stayed!

The window in the bedroom opened directly to our private hot tub. You could sit in the window sill and dangle your feet in the hot tub.

This was our private balcony!!!!

At Ikies Traditional Houses, breakfast is served on your balcony every morning.

The staff at Ikies Traditional Houses were so sweet and had so many great recommendations for us.

I loved Santorini so much, I couldn’t fit in all into one post. Stay tuned for more!! xoxo
