Mediterranean. The last five days have passed by in a blur, as we sailed the coast from Kalamata down to Finikouda. After spending so much time on a boat, I'm still getting the rocking movements from the water hours after being on land. I couldn't help but share the last few remnants of my time in Santorini, and thinking about it makes me miss the beautiful ocean and houses by the sea.

We were a bit unlucky in our initial sail to Xranoi beach for a swim, as it was quite windy and with the sails up the boat was tipping on its side a fair amount, something I had not been expecting at all. Even once we anchored in Koroni the swells were quite strong and I don't think any of us got very much sleep. The village of Koroni is so charming, with taverna's along the water, and an old castle a short walk away. The perspective of the village from the sea is incredible, as unlike on land, you get the full picture from your vantage point. More incredible still was watching the sun set over the buildings, and the sky fade away into pastel coloured hues. I'm pretty sure that I have spent the majority of the past five days lounging about in my swim suit, as we constantly dipped back into the water for a swim. I can honestly say that this has been a 'beach' holiday at its best, and not your typical one at that.

  6. Beautiful photos, the Greek architecture is so stunning! I love the 4th one down of the village at night too! I've been to Greece a few times, but I've always wanted to visit Santorini, now I want to go even more... Ohh, those bright blue oceans, I'm not surprised you spent so much time in the water!
