Assalamualaikum and hai everyone
Today after a loooooong time haven't written anything, i am going to share about my last trip to Greece. Not the whole Greece coz it will take forever to finish. There are alot of nice places in Greece. So today I'm just going to share about Santorini.
Santorini is an island in the southern Aegean Sea about 200 km southeast of Greece's mainland. Santorini is an island formed by a volcanic eruption. U can go to Santorini by boat or by flight . We took a flight from Athens to Santorini which costs only 9.99€ one way. Now everyone can fly (^_^)
So the first thing is the transport in Santorini. For those who can drive, u can rent a car. This is the most convenient way to move around Santorini. But for those who are like us, who are only have license on paper but no confidence to drive, don't worry, there are public buses that go to all tourist attractions in Santorini. So no worry. Bus tiket is 1.20€ one way. The buses are not that frequent. One bus every hour. But it is enough. In summer u can even rent a motorcycle or bicycle.
Fira is the capital of Santorini. This is the place to eat and to buy souvenir. Here we can see all those white cubic houses built on hillside. You can also enjoy the beautiful sunset view here if u are lucky enough. Haha. Because we weren't that lucky. We waited for the sunset but the cloud was too thick and we couldn't see the sun set. Its okay. We have then a reason to come back here. Next trip aim: Santorini sunset! Haha positive sangat.
|Practice selfie while waiting for the sunset. Yes we both are really bad with selfie!|

#2 Volcanic Island
As stated above, Santorini is formed from a volcanic eruption, so there is a small Volcanic Island where u can walk around in the remains of an ancient volcano. Don't be afraid, it will not explode. I think it is not an active volcano anymore. but if it does, then u can record and upload in facebook, youtube or instagram to get million views (if u are still alive) Here u need a really good shoes and a good stamina! It tooks about 30 to 40 minutes to reach the top.

Last but not least. Oia is the symbol of Santorini. U can also enjoy the sunset view here but we didn't. Its not because we don't want, but we have to catch the last bus back to the hotel. We actually almost missed this place because we thought there's nothing special here. Luckily we were chatting with other tourist and asked him about Oia and he said we must go here. Yes this is a MUST to go place. U can miss the other places but not this one. And why? Lets photos tell u why (^_^)
There are not much places in Europe that i want to visit again, but Greece especially Santorini is one of the place i wish to visit again. Plus i have to fulfill my wishes. I haven't seen the beautiful sunset view and i haven't seen the beach turns red haha
SO WELCOME TO SANTORINI (^_^)
