My favourite place changes about once month since I hear about so many amazing places running a site like Baby Friendly Boltholes, however, an enduring favourite is Oia in Santorini. Its filled with romantic little hotels with rooms and balconies cut into the cliff-side all with spectacular views over the lake-like Caldera. The cobbled streets of the village above are crammed with pretty jewellery shops, art galleries and fabulous restaurants.
My top tip is… Don't follow the crowds to the castle to watch the spectacular sunset but head down to the fresh fish tavernas clustered around the tiny port at Ammoudi (just below the village but rarely found by the crowds) and watch it there with a delicious meal and wine… heavenly!
What a mesmerising place to behold blue skies and sublime sunsets. Thank you Sian for sharing this Greek Island spot, and the tip too. I'm dreaming of a romantic anniversary trip in years to come.
Has this got you thinking about your favourite place?
Perhaps it's granny's garden, your local park, a far-flung island, a museum, or cafe. Perhaps it's a building in your city, a shop window, a shady spot under a tree.
Whatever, wherever your favourite place is we want to share it.
Here's how to get involved:
• Send us a picture of your favourite place - or we can source one for you as we have above.
• Tell us where it is. If you'd like to tell us why even better.
• Email it to : firstname.lastname@example.org
We will share each one, each week, here on our blog and we will create an interactive global map of all the places we receive, building a community of people and places and making our global neighbourhood that little bit closer.
So, put your place upon the map and shout a big 'Hello'
Imagine all the people all the places we could know
