Wow! Wow! Wow! It has been almost a year since I update my blog. Anyone miss reading my blog? Anyway, I don’t think so except myself. I guess I am losing myself bits by bits, getting a little lazy to travel and writing crap/memories on my blog. Gonna try my best to find back my passion for travel and photography.

 

How to get to Santorini from Singapore?Β 

I took Singapore Airlines from Singapore to Istanbul, Turkey. From Istanbul, I took Aegean Airlines to Athens and then to Santorini. However, you can now take the twice weekly flight from Singapore Airlines to Athens directly between June and October 2014. I was really anxious to travel to Santorini and I had a long break from work and this was why I decided to pay more to travel.

Why did I choose Santorini?

Stunning photos right! I have always wanted to travel to Santorini. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world. I really have to say this is one of my best holidays ever. On top of that, this is the first time I took an airplane out of Singapore and explored a foreign place entirely alone. It is not that dangerous as I thought it might be. It is a great experience and I have always wanted to do it badly. So glad that I have the guts to do it! YOLO MAN!

These are some of the dishes I have in Santorini. Seafood like fresh sea bream and fried calamari are MUST-TRY! I really enjoyed my life in Santorini. Who says traveling alone is boring? I have so much fun. I wake up everyday late, eat what I want and go where I want. I plan my trips very impromptu and I believe this should be the way how you should enjoy traveling. I used to plan my holiday itinerary and follow it rigidly which really stresses me out. So now, I will just google the must-go places but the best and easy way is just ask the locals especially your friendly concierge!

Ending my blog entry with the sunset photo I took in Fira. Miss the days I get to watch the sun set everyday while enjoying my dinner with a glass of wine. Till then…
