Exploring the Island

Santorini has a lot of hidden walks and hiking trails to explore. The other day we met with 3 lovely Argentinian girls traveling around the island. Nati, Camila and Debi joined Gabi, Dimitri, Dickie the Dog and I and we set off on an unplanned adventure.

We started in the direction of Megalochori and found ourselves on a dirt backroad which lead to some spectacular views and interesting landscapes. There we found horses, goats and nature in all its untamed beauty.

Afterwards we continued our adventure and went in the direction of Akrotiri. We pulled over to the side of the road by a Church (which I ‘accidentally’ climbed up on!) and set off down the windy dirt road through vegetable patches and other crops. We found ourselves at the most beautiful farm where we were greeted by a friendly Greek local who let us go and explore his land. It was such a hidden treasure tucked between two mountains on the outskirts of Akrotiri. The sound of all the bees buzzing around pollenating all the beautiful flowers was amazing. It felt really good to be around all of nature.

Overall an unplanned day exploring the island of Santorini turned into an amazing adventure. I highly recommend going off the beaten path, you will never know what you will find!
