Oia is the photographic gift that just keeps giving I am afraid peeps! So brace yourself for a couple more posts of this little whitewashed slice of heaven.
Everything is just so darned photogenic! Whether it’s colourful pumice stones to a trio of weathered doors, Neil genuinely feared that I would never let us leave.
It’s this quaint gem like quality that attracts artists hankering to capture a little of its beauty and hoardes of tourists and cruise ship passengers.
Thankfully, for us mere mortals with no artistic abilities, there are a multitude of adorable miniature scenes of the town to take away.
Or, instead of a souvenir you could always rent a cat companion for the bargain price of five euros from the town bookshop.
Oia overlooks two sides of the sea, western with Ammoudi bay, eastern with Armeni bay. However only the western side faces the world famous sunset that is a huge draw for hundreds of people.
Forewarned about the gridlock that this daily scene generates, we headed away well before dusk!
Slipping away from the main street you can wind your way down little heat soaked alleyways and lose yourself in the ramshackle jumble of delicious houses and shops.
