Can somebody please explain to me, how is it that Holiday’s seem like a distant hazy memory within milliseconds of landing home? Looking through these photos, it felt like I was peering into somebody else’s life, as if it wasn’t me lying on that beach or meandering through cobbled streets. Rested to stressed. Ugh.

If I haven’t said it before, let me say it now, Santorini is stunning. There are very few places in the world that we’ve fallen so completely in love with but this is one of them. I was even imagining what it would be like to live here but we decided a holiday home would suffice – y’know, when we’ve earned our millions and all that.

I hope I was able to capture some of its beauty with these instagram images. I know, I know, there are way too many but I couldn’t wittle them down anymore – and there are more! Don’t worry though, I shall spare you with this one off post;) We opted to leave the DSLR’s at home because I just wanted a break from it all plus we didn’t want to worry about them.

We did take a waterproof disposable camera though, which we haven’t developed yet. It got me thinking about how we used to take photos (say ‘cheese!’). There was no immediate view, delete, try again back in the day and there’s something really sad about that I feel. In fact, I’m sorely tempted to buy a film camera – it might be what I need to improve my photography skills. That and an actual course! For now though, I’ll make do with instagram, disposable kodaks and reliving holiday moments on my blog.
