santorini diary

July 16, 2014

In our first destination for #PackingwithPaige: Grant and I made a stop on one of my bucket list destinations in Santorini, Greece. The initial leg of this journey was a kind reminder that traveling is not always seamless, and the more trips you take, the more opportunities there are for things to go wrong. After a week long bender in New York City followed by a draft of unfavorable weather in Berlin, Grant and I caught a cold due to the exhaustion, time change and lack of preparation from our time in Germany. Our flight from Tegel to Thira was in no way easy. After chasing two delayed flights, we arrived in Greece at 3 in the morning, with our Air b-n-b check in looming in at 2 pm that afternoon and no access to a driver until 9 am. Upon arrival, we trucked our luggage, consisting of 5 weeks worth of wardrobe covering multiple climates through the narrow steps of Santorini. But never mind the journey it took to get there. After a day of resting in the sun in Oia, we had somehow sweat out all the setbacks we’ve reached to get there and the trip continued on a sweeter note. The colors of Oia are stunning. Pastel sunsets set behind the white and blue walls with an endless view of the Aegean sea.
