Escape to: Santorini

Now, don’t get me wrong. I love Portland. Yes, I even can deal with the rain…but I’m only human and sometimes on a dreary, wet day like today, I can’t help but dream of the sun, warm sand and an exotic destination. We haven’t been anywhere in a long time so, while this isn’t a full on Vicarious Vacation…I thought we’d revisit Greece for a moment. Sit by the pool, sip a drink and feel the warmth of that glorious sun on our faces…ahhh…sounds so good.

Last time, I took you to Hydra Island and that was spectacular but today we are going to peek in on the island of Santorini and a gorgeous resort called Vedema. Let’s go…

Oh Greece…how I love your blue and white! Cobblestone streets and blooms everywhere, I’m in heaven.

Oh yeah…this looks like our kind of place…

Yes…more blue and white. It’s so fresh and I find it rather hard to get sick of, especially with all that sunlight pouring in! Let’s check in.

Of course I got us a gorgeous suite! Only the best! I love all the white in these rooms with the splashes of bright color. I feel tanner already!

A cocktail poolside you say? I’m so there!

Santorini as night falls…so gorgeous right?

Ahhh…okay, I feel a tad better. It’s nice to just escape for a minute isn’t it? Hmm…I might have to plan little escapes for us each Friday. We deserve it don’t we?

Have a fantastic weekend!

    Beautiful! I hope to make it to Greece sometime in my lifetime. After all, with a Greek name I’d better! I’ve been following your blog for a few months now. It’s very calming with an elegant tranquility. Regular Friday escapes sound good.

  7. Lovely pictures. Santorini is nice but not my favourite because I prefer Folegandros, Amorgos and Serifos.
