Although I have a multitude of posts to share from my earlier adventures through Spain, Russia, France and Turkey, I just cannot help skipping forward to cover my adventures in Santorini today. I'm currently sitting in the most beautiful boutique hotel in the northern region of Santorini (Oia) eating grapes and sesame seed covered pistachios (I'd never heard of these before discovering them on the streets of Oia today but they are the most delicious thing!) after just having watched the most beautiful sunset in the world occur over the Santorini caldera from my patio. No pictures or words could fully communicate the mix of serenity and pure joy that I am experiencing right now. The streets; the sunsets; the people; the food - it's all pretty perfect here. For anyone who has ever considered visiting Santorini but thought it was just all hype, it really is as magical as you imagine.

Foreseeing great winds aboard my early morning ferry from Heraklion to Santorini this morning, I threw on this mostly #zara outfit, which protected me from mishaps involving winds exposing my undergarments as well as the harsh summer heat. I've adored the design of this Zara skort ever since I first laid eyes on it but as the online site for Zara doesn't ship to Australia and I have the worst luck finding things in the Australian Zara stores, I decided to rely on chance in finding one in one of the many Zara stores that I was destined to cross on my travels around Europe this summer. I found this white version in the Zara outside of the Moscow Kremlin, which I had entered in the hope of finding a souvenir piece to mark my travelling milestone of visiting Moscow. As for the top, I picked it up just yesterday for a bargain price of 17 euro from the Zara in Heraklion. After over-wearing the cobalt blue version of the same top, I just couldn't go past the floral one too knowing that I would definitely get more than my money's worth sheltering comfortably in it's lightweight material and loose fit this European summer.
