Santorini needs little Introduction, especially as beautiful Greek Islands go. In fact, I’d go as far in saying it’s probably one of the most iconic Greek islands to visit. Honestly, there are so many amazing and some of the best things to do in Santorini that you’ll be spoilt for choice as soon as you … Continue Reading

  Rip off your duffle coat, unzip that onesie and lose the mittens – summer is almost here and that can only mean one thing… summer holidays! Those long evenings, basked in glorious sunshine are definitely made even better by the knowledge that you can (and probably should) be enjoying it somewhere new! With so many … Continue Reading

Hands down, Santorini is one of my favourite Greek destinations and probably one of the most ‘well-known’ out of the hundreds of tiny little islands that blanket the Aegean Sea. The island itself has some of the best scenery and pretty little towns that perch onto the high cliff edges of the volcanic caldera, it’s a truly … Continue Reading

Santorini is an absolute traveller’s delight! The colourful houses, picturesque sunsets, beautiful villages and amazing weather all make for an amazing idyllic getaway from the stress of daily life. In addition to all of these, one of the biggest draws to Santorini, which I guess sometimes get overshadowed by its beauty, is the yummy Greek … Continue Reading

Lots of people know about the larger islands of Europe: Great Britain, Ireland, Sicily and many more but there are many smaller (but no less breathtaking) islands that we often forget or bypass on our quest to visit while travelling around Europe. Some of the islands are “off the beaten track” so to speak, while … Continue Reading

It’s at the opposite end of the island from the capital, it’s not really got a lot of shops and houses and you’d be hard-pressed to find hordes of tourists milling around here but Akrotiri in Santorini is one of the places you should definitely visit in Santorini and here’s why! 1.) The Ancient Grecian … Continue Reading

I’ll keep it short and sweet here. I was looking through holiday photos from our trip to Santorini when I came across this set taken by Chris. We’re all super competitive with each other when it comes to taking photos but part of all that is giving credit when it’s due and so we figured … Continue Reading

The day after we had our sailing trip across Santorini, there was one thing that we all had on minds that all wanted to to – climbing that mountain in the middle of the Caldera! The very next day, we headed out to Fira and got our tickets to do just that! First things first … Continue Reading

2014 was the year that Hand Luggage Only was truly born! Lloyd and I started toying with the idea of Hand Luggage Only back in 2012 after travelling around at every opportunity possible and accumulating quite a lot of travel photos so after a bit of “to’ing” and “fro’ing” we finally decided to go for … Continue Reading

Just realised I hadn’t put up the photos of that place we called home while we were in Santorini so here are the photos of the villa we rented while in Santorini… Don’t know if it was a great idea putting these photos up as it’s currently freezing in London and making me so nostalgic … Continue Reading

Santorini needs no introduction so I’m not going to bother with all of that… Okay, fine. For the uninitiated, Santorini is one of the most picturesque Greek Islands (some would say perhaps “the most”). After exploring the more mainstream parts of Santorini on our own as well as going on a tour off the beaten … Continue Reading

  Swiftly following on from our time in Oia and Fira – we woke up bright and early for our early morning pick up by George from Santorini Tours. The tour was bespoke and so no concrete plans were made without speaking to us first. Having just been to Oia and Fira, we pretty much said … Continue Reading

It is probably safe to say that our trip to Santorini was one that we had been looking forward to for quite a while! While I want to tell you amazing stories of how we went out exploring immediately we arrived and soaked up the culture and all that amazing stuff, alas, most of us … Continue Reading

We have so much to catch up on, you and I! I feel like we haven’t spoken in a while and I have so much to say and of course, I want to hear what you have to say too but in a manner that would make Veruca Salt rather proud – I want to … Continue Reading
