In August, we’ll be celebrating our first wedding anniversary! And on that occasion, we wanted to do something special, only the two of us.
Last year was so busy. We had a huge wedding with our family and friends. Two of my best girlfriends got married to their husbands and I helped planning both. For our atypical honeymoon, we ventured off to Asia for almost four weeks. Six countries. And like the explorers we are, we didn’t waste a minute, running around making sure we didn’t miss anything worth seeing. Don’t misunderstand, we loved every minute of it.
However, this year, we wanted something more relaxing and tranquil. A place preferably close to Norway, as we need a break from long haul flights. A destination where the main goal is to rid ourselves from stress. To move around in a slow pace, and a where it’s totally okay to relax by the pool with a good book. Not a trip where you need a few days off to catch your breath when you get back home.
Our choice fell on Santorini. The picturesque island with it’s white wash houses and blue roofs. A postcard pretty landscape that came about by accident after a volcanic eruption. I’ve always had Santorini high on my bucket list ever since I was youngster. I remember looking at pictures and wishing I one day could see the view of the caldera myself. The only con to my plan of a relaxing holiday, will be all the winding stairs. Luckily, my personal trainer has seemed to grow fond of staircase workouts as of lately, so I consider myself well prepared .
