“Each day had a tranquility a timelessness about it so that you wished it would never end. But then the dark skin of the night would peel off and there would be a fresh day waiting for us glossy and colorful as a child's transfer and with the same tinge of unreality.”
My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrel (highly recommended!)

I don't know if it started with watching 'Getaway' in high school, Gerard Durrel's amazing novel, the wonderful images in My Greek Island Home by Claire Lloyd or simply too much Instagram-stalking, but the Greek Islands have been high on my list of places to see for a very long time. It really was dreamy, for want of a better word. First up was Santorini, which was so beautiful I could forgive it for the hordes of (embarrassing) Australians and tourist menus.
