Since I don't have much in the way of crafting to share with you all I thought you might like to see where we went on holiday.
We love Greece, the food and the people, such a lovely friendly race and we have been lucky enough to holiday on several Greek Islands over the years.
Mark has wanted to visit Santorini for a while now but it's always come out quite expensive but a few months ago we came upon quite a good deal. We only booked for a week and it went by all too quickly, this is now my most favourite Greek destination :-)
For those who want to read a little of the history of Santorini you can find it here. It is one of the most beautiful places we have been in a long time and we are already thinking of booking again.
So, without any more rambling from me here is Santorini, part 1.
Lots of people visit Oia to see the sunset
There are various vantage points, these people are sitting on an ancient fortress
Unfortunately for us the evening we visited the sunset wasn't very spectacular, but we still enjoyed the atmosphere.
I wonder where this door leads to?
Not one of the fancy hillside hotels I fear, lol
Donkeys seemed to be the popular mode of transport because everything is on the steep side, although these looks like mules, a little on the large side for a donkey,
These I took around the hotel we were staying in, It was only a small place but was very well kept and clean.
I don't know the significance of the windmill, we did see some really large ones on the way to Oia which were obviously being lived in.
I have a 'thing' about windows, and this one appealed to me :-)
The pool wasn't huge, just enough to have a little swim around and cool down and as there were hardly any people around it suited us just fine.
Saw plenty of these little critters running around :-)
And just to end on a crafty note, I spied these crochet belts in one of the shops in Oia. Proving that crochet is cool, lol
I hope you enjoyed my little tour, I will be back in a few days with part 2.....if you can bare it, lol
Until next time
