I am a masters student studying MA Child and Adolescent Psychology in Greece. I am adventurous and love nature and animals (I currently have five dogs). I’m looking for something safe and fun where I can be myself and meet new people. I love cooking, writing, acting, singing, gardening and swimming among other things. I am clean and respectful and easy to get along with. Can’t wait to see the world!

Couple travel experience

We spent 3 days in Santorini, and I wish we would have spent less time there. Too many people for me and quite expensive. I didn’t feel like I was getting the real essence of Greece. In front of our place overlooking the caldera there were people getting their photo taken 24/7.

Solo travel experience

For Santorini, I enjoyed visiting the ancient Thera site - not much to see by way of ruins but fantastic views. Personally I found sunset in Oia to be overhyped - I’d recommend watching the sunset from Imerovigli or Pyrgos as other options. Akrotiri lighthouse also provides another interesting view. Also loved Megalochori - beautiful little town and also has a view of the caldera. The rock formations in Vlichada Beach are spectacular too. I did the walk from Oia to Fira and it was great. Same a cruise around Santorini, had a lot of fun. So nice seeing the caldera and island from the water.

Family travel experience

Santorini was one of my very favourite destinations! The views, the food, the people and the beaches. We spent most of our time in Santorini and one full day in Athens. My daughter and I felt very safe.

Solo travel experience

Santorini is the most overrated Greek island in my opinion. Very, very expensive and no real soul or Greek island ‘vibe’. Yes, the sunset is amazing, but the crowds spoil it I feel. Every island has its own personality. I prefer the smaller, less crowded islands where you actually get to know the locals.

Itinerary: Day 1: Admire the view from Fira Day 2: Caldera sunset sailing tour Day 3: Hike from Fira to Oia Day 4: Perissa black sand beach Day 5: Akrotiri ancient ruins and Red beach Safety: I felt totally safe and comfortable. I met a lot of other solo female travelers in hostels, so I didn’t end up spending that much time on my own. Accommodation: I absolutely loved my stay at Caveland hostel. So accessible to everything on the island, and the staff was so nice. Great place too meet cool people from all over. Recommendations: Go to Oia at sunrise. You will still get all the beauty of the city, but you can avoid the crowds.
