Santorini: The Land of the Stars

 

This is a picture of Oia, Santorini, Greece pronounced as Iia. Greece has approximately 3000 islands out of which 150 are inhabited. Keeping that in mind Santorini is a must to visit, mainly because of its calming atmosphere and of course Oia. This island has survived and lived through the wraths of mother nature, in the form of volcanic eruptions big enough to create a whole island(named Niakameni), tsunamis that destroyed 80% of the land and an earthquake that left the island with very little life. In spite of all of that Santorini managed to salvage whatever beauty was left in the land and preserve it as it was. When I look at this picture I think about how stars although may not be seen in the sky can be found on the ground right next to you. Santorini during the day is equally beautiful as the entire island is dotted with white houses and blue domes. This is the most picturesque spot perfect for taking an instagram or just taking it all in with your eyes and living in the moment. This island is known for wine, as the climate is perfect for growing grapes. My favourite memory is of me sipping rosé (pink wine) while the sun lightly grazes my skin while looking at it set.IMG_2935.jpgpicture courtesy:Driti Wadwa

A quote that defines me 'you have galaxies inside your head, stop letting people tell you you cannot shine'.Through this blog I hope to entertain you to the fullest !
