“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” – Saint Augustine
There’s something majestic about Oia that words cannot describe. It really does feel like another world, from its scenic cliff-sides and world famous sunsets, to it’s white painted houses and blue rooftops. My reaction upon arriving there was “Are we really here? Someone pinch me!” because ever since learning about Greek mythology in high school, all I can recall is dreaming about paying the Cyclades a visit one day.
Santorini is the result of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in world history, which is a prime example that “Something good can come from ashes”. Surrounded by the Aegean Sea, Santorini is the island known to have more donkeys than humans, more churches than houses, and more wine than water.
Rashad and I arranged to take a couple shoot along the picturesque caldera with a Greek photographer, Tasos, who kindly led us through small nooks and crannies we may not have discovered otherwise.
I will be sharing a bunch of other photographs from our Greek getaway, so make sure to follow keep your eyes peeled for future posts!
