We got the ferry to Santorini. It was about a 4 hour journey I think. You can just book your tickets online or buy them in the town in Mykonos.
Santorini really shocked me, it was totally different to what I was imagining it to be like. It is beautiful but its hectic!
We wanted to shoot some photos and avoid the crowds so we got up at 4am and shot at sunrise but even then some of the wedding photoshoots had started. You won’t believe how busy it is until you see it!
There is really not much to do at all apart from sit in the sun & enjoy the views – probably why its such a great honeymoon spot!

Sunset villas – small walk from oia village (the hill with the pretty white buildings where everyone shoots their Instagram photos lol)

I think the best way to do Santorini is either fly direct & have a expensive few days where you stay in 5* hotel (with private access) or you can go to Mykonos, ferry there for a couple of days and stay somewhere cheaper and still experience the beauty of it 🙂
I can’t wait to spend some more time in Greece next summer!
