Santorini is one of the most visually stunning places that I have ever visited – the iconic white buildings and blue domed roofs certainly contribute to that beauty, but the cliffs and bright blue water are what really blow your mind as you walk across the island. We were able to spend time hiking the caldera of the volcano, swim in the hot springs, and have lunch then explore in Thira. I wish that we could have seen Oia, but we had an amazing time and always have the option to return. The downside to visiting on a cruise is that your time in each port is very limited, but we’ll take what we can get.
One of the early stops on our honeymoon was in Dubrovnik, Croatia. It was probably my favorite of the places that we visited – the landscapes, architecture, and beaches were absolutely gorgeous. We spent a good amount of time in the historic walled city, as well as walking the nearby beaches, neighborhoods, and forts. I truly enjoyed learning about the history of Dubrovnik and wish that we could have spent more time there. Here are some of the photos that I took while we were there:
