The sunset in Oia is definitely in the top 5 I’ve ever experienced. The caldera view is incredible, so adding a sunset to that is totally breathtaking.
All the pictures in the world could not have prepared me for the beauty of Oia, Santorini. It was everything I dreamed of and more. I constantly found myself staring out at the views and saying “It’s so pretty here!” The homes and buildings on the mountainside (this is called the “caldera”) is such a gorgeous view.
My favorite place to hang out in Split, Croatia was the promenade. There are several shops and restaurants all along the water where you can enjoy the gorgeous views and weather and eat some delicious food. And the food in Croatia is amazing.

What a huge mistake! It’s so incredibly quick and easy. Not to mention that literally everyone speaks English […]
I only have a few more days before I jet off to Italy, so naturally I’ve already begun preparing. I’ve already shared my International Travel Essentials, but there’s a lot more to withstanding these long, overnight flights.
