Walking around with a local is always the best way to experience a new city. It’s definitely what I felt when I was walking around Santorini with Sunrise Greece in between our shoots and romantic dinner setups. They always brought me to the best spots, without wasting any time and skipping all the tourist traps. One of my favorites out of all the little excursions we did was our trip to Pyrgos, the picturesque village that used to be Santorini’s capital before Fira. Although it’s said to be a popular tourist destination as well, I didn’t see throngs of tourists at all when we went there. The village was so quiet, I felt like I could hear my voice echo. Being the shutterbug that I am, I wasn’t one to complain. I grabbed the opportunity and took a gazillion photos of all the traditional houses, churches and stores lining up the narrow winding paths leading up the hillside. Everything was just so charming! The only time I stopped clicking away was probably when I reached the top of the hill–just to take a moment to admire the panoramic view of the entire island from up there. Wow… It’s moments like this that remind me how truly lucky I am to be able to see all this. Isn’t the world so beautiful?
