In November 2014 we both decided that we needed a long break (two weeks) from life, it had been a tough few years. After scrolling on the internet one evening, we both saw the Greek island Santorini pop up on Google, seeing the pictures we knew instantly that we need to go there! We booked our two week holiday through Thomson Travel, pleasantly surprised by the low price, we booked it immediately.

- Tranquilo - it's very cheap, the salads are amazing for lunch but be warned the salads are for two people, they have gluten free meals and amazing smoothies. Highly recommend for a light lunch. Roughly 15 euros for two people
- Apollon Restaurant - staff were super nice, the house white wine is delicious and they have everything on the menu, from Greek to English to European food. Roughly 25 - 30 euros for two people.
- Volcano Taverna - mixed grill for two was 25 euros, not only do you get the mixed grill but you also get a greek salad and wine. I mean what more could you want? View of the sea? They have that too. Roughly 25 euros for two people
*Please note with most Greek restaurants the portions are very big*

If you are heading to the Island of Santorini, I hope you have a great time. Let me know if you have any recommendations as we are planning a trip back there next year.
