You know those unforgettable vacations that leave you wondering when you'll ever get the chance to return? After attending our friends wedding in the port town of Rafina and a two day stay in Athens, we sailed away to paradise and stayed at the Rocabella suites and spa.
I'm gonna take a trip down memory lane. Wanna come along?
Blue domed roofs everywhere...
Spectacular blue water everywhere...it's impossible to take a bad picture. See that beach below?
Infamous sunsets of Oia...ahhhh.
Color inspiration anyone? Rust, corals, turquoise, blush and royal blue. Breathtaking!
And the beaches, oh the beaches! So diverse depending on your location on the island.
Black Beach aka Perivolos Beach
And Red Beach - by far, one of my most memorable experiences of the trip. Unlike any beach I've seen before, I highly recommend visiting this gem despite it's off the beaten path location.
The cliffs of the caldera
Random fact: I rode up this hill on a donkey and felt guilty the entire time. Poor animal, God bless 'em.
And swimming in the muddy hot springs loaded with sulfur that's healing and restorative for the skin.
And of course, I have to include one of my favorite photos of my handsome husband, who carried my overpacked luggage and oversized hairdryer.
Thanks for coming along on my holiday! In honor of the fabulous Greek culture and their delicious food, I'm sharing one of my favorite Greek inspired recipes later this week. Please stop by and visit again soon!
Until then, Opa!
