Europe Snapshots: Day 9

Yesterday was perfect.  I got some much-needed rest and took it pretty easy.  BreeAnn and I walked around our small city of Oia (pronounced Ee-ah) and made it down to the coast.  It’s the low season for tourism which has its ups and downs.  We are often the only people at many of the popular tourist destinations, which is nice, but many of the restaurants are closed.  Either way, Santorini has been exactly what I needed.

  1. I’m glad you liked it, even though it’s not touristic season as you said. I haven’t been there, but if you have the chance to visit in August, the sunset is amazing :)
