While on Santorini, taking pictures of white-walled, blue domed Greek Orthodox churches as they vie for attention against breathtaking landscapes is obligatory, I believe.
So here it is, an ‘obligatory’ shot. But let me tell youa bout the ‘obligatory shots’ on Santorini. They are an absolute delight to take. Standing with the sun shining down on me and the island breeze gliding past me and the voices of Grecian locals wafting in and out of the streets below me was magical. No matter where I was I felt like I was in a dream that few get to see. Of course, that’s not true, lots of tourists go there very summer to see some of these same sites, but I felt like a fairy princess with exclusive rights to paradise.
Every lady should get that feeling once in a while, I think…not just as a little girl. And for the little girls who missed out, I hope they each find (and live) the experience that would give them that feeling of being privileged and special.
