From my personal journal:
“The most interesting part of Greece so far has been the roads. America was built around our cars getting around on our roads, but in Greece, a few times already, we’ve driven down a road only to back up halfway through because it was only big enough for motorbikes and people. A place that predates cars, but kept it that way is fascinating to me.
Really, on an island as small as this, it makes sense to build a city around people instead of cars – maybe people even feel more connected here than in, say, New York. Not just because it’s a small population. Not just because it’s an island. But because everyone is forced to be near each other – to see familiar faces daily, to literally air their laundry for the world to see, to memorize other people’s door colors and recognize the few cars who do drive around.
Last night we had a bnset dinner in a restaurant. It wasn’t fancy, really, but there was a view. I imagined what kind of people were in this touristy restaurant. Were they honeymooning couples? Old friends? Vacationing wives who’s husbands had passed?
Sam and I have slept most of the day, but the windows are open, there’s a breeze, and the view is hazy and beautiful.”
Some photos, snapchat stills, and thoughts from our stay in Santorini Greece. I also did videography for a wedding while there, but to get the full scope of the trip, you’d really want to look at Sam’s post about this vacation, too.
