Wine And Waves

Another perk of going around Santorini with Sunrise Greece, I got the perfect dose of wine and waves. They brought me to this quaint winery out of town, run by a Greek family for many many years. It was an afternoon filled with authentic Greek wine and a dose of art and beautiful paintings on […]


Travel Diary: Oia, Santorini

Here are just a few of the snapshots I took while in Oia, Santorini. You see, when you’re in a place as beautiful as this, it’s hard not to take a gazillion photos. I kept shooting left and right the moment I stepped out of my room. Every little corner looked like it came out […]


Color Me Santorini

I’ve never been afraid of color and I’m pretty sure I got it from my momma. Growing up, I’d see her wear color-coordinated outfits from head to toe (which isn’t hard for someone who’s got slacks in EVERY color). Pastels, neons, jewel tones–you name it, she has rocked it. Don’t get me wrong. She’s not […]


Wandering Around Pyrgos

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. […]



The internet is a scary place. This is a fact I was very much aware of even before starting my own blog. Not a lot of you know that one of the many reasons I was apprehensive to start my own blog (hence the word “tries” on Camille Tries To Blog) was the fear of getting […]


Sending Shivers Down My Spine

When I was packing for Santorini, in my head, I was packing for a warm mediterranean holiday. Swimsuits, light cover-ups, maxi dresses with slits up to heaven, sheer clothes, short shorts–you get the picture. Little did I know that by night time, it was a totally different story. To put it bluntly, I almost froze […]


Mornings With Me

I’ve always been a morning person but despite this fact, I used to never pay much attention to a complete morning routine. Of course, I never skip taking a shower and grabbing breakfast, but when it comes to a morning SKINCARE routine, I just couldn’t be bothered. In fact, it’s only recently that I started […]


Sending Love from Oia, Santorini

Take me back to Oia please. With its white washed, blue domed churches, quaint Cycladic houses and cave stuctures in pastel colors, I could’ve stayed here forever. They look exactly like how I imagined it–postcard perfect. Every little corner was a beautiful discovery. Roaming around the town’s narrow passageways and cascading steps and admiring the […]


My Santorini Dream Come True

I’ve always loved the idea of a destination wedding and prenuptial shoot abroad. I remember the first time I thought about it. It was during my foreign exchange program when I was visiting one of Spain’s palaces one weekend. I was staring at its grand ballroom and thinking to myself, wouldn’t it be nice to […]


The Beginning

May 7, 2016–the day my European fairytale officially started. We arrived in Santorini late at night, greeted by a team member of Sunrise Greece who assisted us all the way from check in to our hotel until we’re safely settled in for a good night’s rest. “See you tomorrow,” she said. “Eeep! Can’t wait!” I […]
