Greece: Santorini, Sunny Villas

What's it like living in a cave, you ask?

I was dying to stay at Sunny Villas after my endless research on hotels in Santorini. The idea of staying in a CAVE was appealing. In real life, it was a difficult hotel to get to, but I imagine many of the hotels on Santorini to be the case, as the town is built on the side of a volcanic caldera, not to be confused with a crater. And it's STEEP, y'all! Hotel Sunny Villas had incredible caldera and sunset views from the terrace, but the actual cave-like habitat was rather claustophobic, for us. Still, it was incredible to be situated right in front of the Skaros rock, which used to be a medieval fortress, that we hiked on the last day of our trip (more on that later). For now, this.

How did you ever leave this place? For real..

I second Julie's sentiment.
Also: All of these gorgeous pictures are empty my bank account as we speak. All of the sudden, it is funneling itself to my "special funds to run off to the Mediterranean and live there forever" account. :)

Hahaahahaa! Hilarious!!

Greece has been on my list for so many years. I was supposed to go when I was 22 after college, but ended up in Bermuda instead.

I'm adding Santorini specifically to my list :)
