Oia, Oh Oia

Marie Lozano

It is the capital of amateur pictorials in the world! Every corner, every turn, you are bound to see a photo shoot, usually of tourists doing their imitation model poses. Although, many seem awkward especially when others are looking or lining up for a chance to get a photo with the same view. I think, “Who cares? Really?” I probably won’t even look at the person in the photo. How can you with this amazing view?

I’m not trying to be a snob! In fact I am that tourist doing a perilous photo shoot on the edge of a whitewashed dome shaped rooftop. Of course, I had to do it! It is just too beautiful that even my over tired jetlagged face is not an excuse not to do it. My saving grace: My trusty oversized sunnies and a hat I bought from one of the kiosks in Oia.

I waved at our neighbor, a very nice couple honeymooning in the next villa. This was my way of saying “excuse me” for the next few minutes that I ruin your view just before you have your morning coffee. A few clicks after, Pierre tells me it’s a wrap. He’s got the shot. The place is picture perfect. I could be inside a sack and the photos would still look amazing.

Even if you are camera shy, I highly recommend you freeze the moment when you get a chance to visit Santorini. It hasn’t failed to put a smile on my face whenever I look at the photos from my trip. 

Many people ask me for tips for their visit to Santorini. It’s simple: Just get to the island. Stay in one of the villages overlooking the caldera (my favorite is Oia). Stay for longer than a day. Sit on your balcony, or take a dip pool or the Jacuzzi and just take it all in and enjoy the breathtaking view.

I ticked off Santorini in my bucket list when I visited for the first time 4 years ago, but I decided to put it back on my list. Number 78 on my list: Buy a villa in Santorini. Lets hope it happens so I can add number 79: Invite my blog readers to my villa in Santorini. Lets keep dreaming!
