There is a hotel in Santorini, Greece that I absolutely must visit. It’s called the Porto Fira Hotel and it is incredible! It’s absolutely gorgeous. It’s a dream and the view of the Aegean Sea, well, it looks like an artistic masterpiece. Sometimes, when I’m feeling especially wistful, I will browse their website and dream about the trip that my husband and I are, one day, going to take there. It’s amazing! Absolutely amazing.
I looked around today at the cost of reservations. If I chose to visit either the month before or the month after “peak season” I could book a mid-level suite there for an entire week for $1500. No kidding. $1500 for one entire week. That’s fantastic! The crappy part? The airfare is $1200 per person. Isn’t that absurd?! Seriously. The cost of getting there is nearly the cost of staying for a week. That’s ridiculous.
