  1. Hi Chrissy,

    Freaking gorgeous! I never knew how stunning the beaches were in Greece until a few years back. Now I’m sold! Santorini is a dream. From seeing it online it’s comparable to Fiji, where I lived for 4 months. Pure magic. From the water, to clear skies, to the overall pristine vibe. It seems to not be overrun too. Which is nice 😉 As much as I love Thailand and Bali a fair number of fab beaches in these spots get too crowded. Thanks for sharing!
