Best of Santorini Tourism and what to expect.

I realized that I was in need for a trip somewhere and I am taking my brother in law and group of friends that were already excited about going. So we decided to do a little research beforehand to get the trip planned out. My brother in law actually had a gentleman that owns an OKC garage door repair company in OKC tell him while getting his door fixed that he was just there and it was amazing and to definitely go. So I started to do my research and see what all there was to do. Here’s what I found: A caldera, that is when a volcano erupts within itself, forming a crest, Santorini Island is a result of the volcanic destruction. A beautiful Island connected to the Mediterranean Sea, lyings between Greece and Turkey. The Island is known for it’s magnificent, eye-warming sunsets and unique beaches.

A caldera, that is when a volcano erupts within itself, forming a crest, Santorini Island is a result of the volcanic destruction. A beautiful Island connected to the Mediterranean Sea, lyings between Greece and Turkey. The Island is known for it’s magnificent, eye-warming sunsets and unique beaches.

One can visit its small towns and villages, which has to share its own variation of attraction. The popular destinations in Santorini are FIRA, OIA, PERRISA, KAMARI, IMEROVIGLI, and AKROTIRI.

These locations are known for its beaches, resorts, they also offer hiking trails, cruise trips, and wonderful nightlife.

Kemari is known for its Open Air Cinema and its black beach. Kemari Beach is surrounded by black sand, black rocks, and pebbles are the best place to attract tourists. Nevertheless, adding on to the list of Santorini’s unique beaches is another ‘Black Beach’- the Perrisa beach, located southeast of Fira, features black sand, crystal clear water and its significant features are the huge rocks that emerge from within the sea, these rocks are the main attraction of this site and are called the Mesa Vouno, these rocks shines at night, leaving the tourists mesmerized.

Akrotiri, which is a Minoan Bronze Age settlement on the volcanic island Santorini, has its own attraction. Towards its tail end lies a beautiful and famous beach, the Red Beach, which is known for its reddish volcanic sand. It attracts most tourists as it is a great swimming spot and best for snorkeling, allowing one to collect the beautiful rocks buried underwater.

Hiking Trail Fira is highly recommended for all tourists. The views are amazing, and if one happens to go on a cool, windy and cloudy day, a refreshing experience is  GUARANTEED. There are many places to stop for a beer/coffee/food as you pass through several villages. Although it is a long hike, it is definitely worth a shot. Fira also has to offer the tour to a famous ‘Archeological Museum’ which has a lot of information to offer to its visitors as it displays sculptures, statues, and findings from the times of ancient cemetery.

Tourism on Santorini Island is a perfect blend of enjoying both traditional and modern culture. It is a place where you will find more churches than houses and more wine than water. It’s also famous for its wineries and dome-shaped houses. Nevertheless, the locals of Santorini promote their tradition excessively by hosting events and preparing traditional food that will just make you fall in love with Santorini.

Santorini also has to offer helicopter flight, which displays the incredible view of Santorini’s cliffs, caldera, vineyards when it passes over the towns.

To unwind the day, Santorini has great deals of resorts and hotel to stay in. Few hotels at the top of the list are, Pegasus Suites & Spa, this luxury 5-star hotel is located on the caldera with an incredible view. Volcanic View Hotel, which is located in Fira and is perfect to enjoy your honeymoon. Lastly, Art Maison Luxury Santorini Hotels Aspaki & Oia Castle, offering a magical experience with its beautiful location at the hilltop, on the edge of the volcanic cliff, in the heart of preserved village of Oia.

SO I have made my mind up and we will be there in the beautiful Santorini sun in a few days. Glad I did my research and So ready to go now.

Use Your Smile To Have A Happy Day

 

Every morning is a fresh opportunity for your life to take a new path. The day is at your disposal and can be anything that you want it to be. The real question is how to you ensure that you have a happy day?

Many people believe that they have no control over the day ahead of them. That everything happens by fate and that they are simply in for what life has in store for them. However, that is not true. There are some things that you can do to ensure that you have a happy day.

The first thing that you need to do is choose your attitude. It’s easy to allow yourself to have your emotions swayed by the circumstances that you are in. Unfortunately, this often leads to you feeling more negative than positive.

Rather than allowing that to happen, it is better to choose your attitude and to stay strong in that choice. It is unexpected how much of an effect your choice in approach can have on your day. When you have an encouraging attitude you can take bumps in the road in stride.

One of the easiest ways to have a happy day is to simply put a smile on your face and try to give happiness to other people as well.  When you smile it activates your muscle memory reminding you of times that were happy. That can make you feel happier in a very short period of time. The great thing about a smile is that it doesn’t take a lot of effort to make happen, yet it can bring about a significant change in your mood.

Another way to put yourself in a more positive mood is to count your blessings. All too often you may find yourself taking what you have for granted. This does not just mean material things. It can also mean those intangible things like love, faith, and security. Take some time each and every day to cherish the blessings that you have in your life and realize how lucky you are to have them.

To make yourself feel satisfied and happy it is also a good to finish things that you have started. It is not unusual to have incomplete projects untruthful around, but these projects tend to hang over your head and overshadow everything that you do. The best thing that you can do to make yourself happier is to finish some of those projects. That sense of satisfaction will bring a smile that you will not soon lose.

If all else fail one way to give yourself an urgent situation shot of happy is to take the focus off of yourself. Spend some time lending a hand to someone in need. This could be someone that you know or even someone that you don’t. Sometimes volunteering to help others is exactly what you need to do to realize how much you have in your own life and how happy you should be in your life each and every day.
