Santorini

4th of July celebration, Santorini

We have spent the past month traveling with friends and family, sailing the Greek Isles and boating along the Amalfi Coast, truly an amazing leg of our travels that we have very much been enjoying!  Naturally we are a month behind on our blog, here is a quick post from where we last left off... the 4th of July.

 

We would have LOVED to spend the 4th of July in the good old US of A (shout out to TL, still the best 4th around!) however our travels have brought us to Santorini, Greece... and not a bad place at all to celebrate!

 

We flew from Dubrovnik, Croatia with Jill and Joe to Santorini to meet up once again with LJ, who flew in from Berlin, and friend Kevin, who flew in from Indonesia, for a weekend filled with American flags, sparklers (our fireworks), hamburgers, classic rock, beers and of course lots of tzatziki!

 

The weekend was a blast and Santorini, with its whitewashed cliffside villages towering above the deep blue Aegean, is easily one of the most beautiful places on the planet.  A few favorite memories from a memorable weekend...

  1. Ooo I love Santorini. My single favorite day when I spent my 4 months traveling was renting a 4-wheeler and driving around Santorini. Beautiful guys!
