MAKE MY LEMONADE IN SANTORINI
I used to spend Sunday mornings on my balcony reading Sunday newspapers in the company of a huge cup of coffee. Times however, have changed and the balcony may still be the same and my cup fully loaded with coffee but newspapers have been replaced by my tablet and articles of politics by more cheerful news written by my favourite blogs. Last Sunday was no exception and I was more than happy to see a post about Santorini, one of the most beautiful places in Greece (or should I say in the world?) published by French blogger Lisa of Make My Lemonade!
Lisa, got married recently (Congratulations Girl!) and she visited our country for her 10-day-honeymoon in October! She enjoyed her trip so much that she decided to publish some articles about it!
On her first post about her honeymoon in Greece she talks about her 5-day visit to Santorini which amazed her with its breathtaking views and geological features. She tried moussaka, had the best octopus salad of her life, walked all the way up from the old port of Ormos to Fira, cuddled the adorable little donkeys on the way and finally visited Oia or as she says the “postcard village”!
The things Lisa enjoyed the most and the memories she carried back to France with her are her breakfasts of local produce and walking from Fira to Oia (I did that twice when I worked in Oia back in 2004 and I suggest you do it too, when you visit the island!). As Lisa says, the volcanic scenery is stunning and you will be dazzled by the view and little white churches popping out everywhere under the glittering sun and sky!
You can read all about her trip to Santorini and see more of the beautiful photos she took along with tips on where to stay and what to do when on the island here.
Lisa spent 10 days in Greece. Her first stop was Santorini and then she went on to Crete and Athens for which she will be writing in the next few days, so I urge you to keep an eye for her next posts on Athens and Crete by subscribing to her mailing list or following La Grèce J’aime on Facebook where we will be posting her updates on her trip to our country!
