Rather that photo OVERload, I've decided to just post our first day in Santorini. I tried to post our entire Santorini stay, but realized I was using far too many photos.
On day #1 Aaron and I went into the town of Fira to explore. We decided we wanted to do the hike from Fira to Oia which attracts only a fraction of Santorini's visitors.
The hike was beautiful, LONG, but beautiful. It was secluded which was a nice change of pace considering everything was packed with tourists.

After our long hike, we re-hydrated shortly and decided we should descend the 218 steps down to the pier. It wasn't long after we started that I realized I was living out my Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants DREAM! We were walking straight down to the pier while passing donkeys and little cave dwellings.
My little heart was thumping away.

The water was GORGEOUS. Had Aaron and I really been on top of things we would have brought a bathing suit to join the rock jumpers near the pier. But instead we just watched.
Then hiked back up the stairs just in time for the famous Oia sunset.
We were so exhausted from our hiking we missed dinner.
….. two nights in a row.
