Yes, Santorini has another side to it.

My journal Uncategorized

After visiting Santorini many times you are lucky to discover the local aspects of the island.

One of them being the small town of Pyrgos. This is usually where I love to stay when I go with my family.

This year after having lunch in the town square of Pyrgos at Kantouni restaurant we booked or stay on the beach of Perivolos.
Staying on the cliffs of Santorinis Caldera in the middle of August is completely insane. Prices are through the roof and the crowds make it somewhat unpleasant.

And after visiting the calmness of Amorgos we chose to be on the beach. A bit more family-friendly and spacious it was a welcome 2 nights.
The volcanic black beach is unique and revitalizing.
Worth considering when on the island of Santorini.

Family time in the Canary Islands
The best time is family time. The best family time is when we get to travel. As a family we place great value into travel. We as individuals love it and when we can we try to pass this on to our little girl Penelope.Traveling with a child is not that easy but compared to others with many kids I can’t complain. Penelope handles the planes, the layovers, the car rentals and the mixed cuisines with charm and ease. Visiting the Canary Island this past November was no exception. We all had the time of our lives. And how couldn’t we. It was November and we were at Lanzarote hanging out on the beach sun bathing! This was part two of m ...
