‘The Ocean Was Always You’

“When you have swam in the sea a lake will no longer do; everyone else was always a pond but the ocean was always you” [tyler knott gregson] I came across this poem today and it immediately brought me back to Greece. And I remembered that I never got the chance to share the self-portrait…

Greek Simplicity

It’s been almost a month since I’ve been back living here on the island and I still find my best moments in simplicity. “You’ve a lovely adventurous soul…revel in it.” xx Hannah Jane

Santorini, you are perfect.

Seriously. I don’t know how you do it. It seems to me that you, Santorini were handcrafted by the gods to be the most insanely beautiful place ever. What more could anyone want from you with your ridiculous cliff top views, mouth-watering greek comfort food, artsy shops, old bookstores, and YES.. even donkeys. I don’t…

Kayaking and A Baby Donkey Named Lucy

Kalimera!

Waking up every day, opening the doors to my balcony, and feeling overwhelmed with this much beauty is an unexplainable feeling. People keep asking me to describe this place and I can’t seem to find the words. All I can say is that you must see it for yourself. I want nothing more than for…
