As long as I could remember, I have always dreamed of going to Santorini, Greece. I am in awe every time I see Santorini in pictures or videos. Probably influenced by the movie The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants back in the early 2000s, Santorini, Greece became my dream destination.
If you have been reading my blog for quite a while, you have probably noticed how often I mention Santorini. When I visited one Santorini-inspired place in the Philippines, Sundowners Vacation Villas, I couldn’t contain my happiness. Imagine how I would feel if I am really going to Santorini?
I’m so in love with Santorini that I even listed 5 Santorini-inspired places I want to visit in the Philippines aside from Sundowners Vacation Villas. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance to visit any of it.
Now that I am in Europe, maybe there’s a higher chance that I could visit this place soon? I will definitely make it happen! For now, let’s enjoy Santorini from pictures I found.
Honestly, I haven’t researched the activities that you can do there. I don’t even know any places that you can visit in that island. I’ll find out about it when I already have plans to visit it. I don’t want to excite myself too much!
Also, a part of me was hesitant about going to Santorini. I don’t know, but I am somehow scared of visiting it too. I feel like my expectations are too high that I’ll probably disappoint myself once I get there. Do you also feel the same? There’s this place that you cannot wait to visit, but you are worried that you might not like it when you get there?
Santorini is not only my dream destination, but I want to spend my honeymoon here
I jokingly told my boyfriend that if we were to get married, I don’t care about the fancy wedding or a big wedding as long as we spend our honeymoon in Santorini.
He agreed. Why? It turns out that Santorini is also his dream destination! Isn’t it exciting? We both want to visit Santorini! Oh, I also cannot wait to watch the sunset there.
If I were to stay there, I would probably spend one week! One or two nights in a luxury hotel, then the rest of the nights in budget hotels. Of course, there are too many places that I should visit in Greece, Mykonos is next on my list.

This blog post serves as a reminder to myself that I will visit Santorini soon! I don’t mind if I’ll visit this place next year, 5 years after or even 10 years. Santorini, see you soon.
I am looking forward to visiting Santorini, and hopefully, I won’t get disappointed. I’ll keep you updated once I got to visit my dream destination.
