Travel Photo Diary: Santorini, Greece

Santorini is for lovers. But really. If you’ve ever seen a photo of whitewashed houses and two impossibly blue domes looking out to sea, you’ve seen Santorini. The hilltop village of Oia, famed for its beautiful sunset, is where locals and tourists alike crowd around with picnics and bottles of wine to toast to the artwork in the sky. Once you’ve had your fill of romance, head to Fira, the capital of Santorini, for a night on the town you won’t soon forget. While Mykonos is famed for being the party island, the most fun night out I had on my trip was here.
