WanderlustWednesdays: Santorini, Greece

DO SEE DRINK EAT TRY PLAY STAY – Santorini, Greece

Admit it – after watching the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Santorini, Greece has been on your bucket list. This magical island was my first stop last summer on my two month Europe trip (or rather Foodcation). It sure did not disappoint with the picture perfect sunset, sparkling blue water, and enough tzatziki and souvlaki to eat to your heart’s desire.

DO: Rent ATV’s and explore the island! Everyone does it and it’s the easiest way to get around and see the whole island.

SEE: Don’t leave Santorini without seeing Amoudi Bay! Spend the afternoon having lunch at Amoudi Fish Tavern, and then follow the corner around and find the perfect spot to relax, swim, and tan.

DRINK: At Two Brothers Bar in the village of Fira. Came back here twice, once for Happy Hour, with great selection of drinks and cocktails at amazing prices (two for one), and another time after dinner around 10pm; was such a blast, great music and lively atmosphere. They have a funny tradition where you wear a helmet and get hit in the head with a stick while doing a free shot.

EAT: At Pitogyros – cheapest and best gyros stuffed with French fries on the island! So flavorful and cheap for the amazing quality ingredients and portion size you get. Also try Amoudi Fish Tavern – it’s in the picturesque Amoudi Bay and has everything from amazing sundried octopus, greek salads with massive portions of feta and tatziki.

TRY: Mousaka – eggplant lasagna which is a surpriginly delicious typical greek dish

PLAY: Visit Amoudi Bay and jump off the cliff that the Sisterhood of the Traveling pants girls jumped off of in the second movie! Here is a link to a step by step guide on how to get there.

STAY: Near Fira. There are tons of amazing restaurants, shops, and more near this part of the island. Oia is the picturesque place to stay but is way more expensive and all the way across the island; you can always go visit Oia by ATV like I did!
