So What is Siteseeing?
Siteseeing is a series that shares treasures from around the web, with a dose of travel inspiration on the side. Come ready with eyes to explore new sites and new sights (see what I did there?), whether you are adventuring from your comfy living room on Saturday or preparing for a weekend trip to someplace new. Ultimately, I hope this series helps you open up creatively and fuel your adventurous calling in life.
Are y’all ready to embark on this journey around the web and around the world? I hope so– let’s get started!
Let’s See Some Links!
- A whimsical watercolor print that I can see in my apartment in the fall
- Dana started a new Youtube channel and reviews several blog designs for us!

- Cliff diving and pineapples. Enough said. I’m all in.
- Let Allie’s words sink into your soul, as she gives a peek into her creative process.
- I loved Alisa’s video series on chasing your dreams. Self-employed artists and creatives, this is for you!
- Did you know you can go on a Caribbean vacation and attend a blog conference at the same time?
- I signed up for Post to Post, a blogger pen pal project hosted by Kiki and Victoria. I can’t wait to connect more with bloggers this way, and there’s still time to sign up (closing date is July 14)!
While this series is about sharing some sites to see and some places to go, let’s recognize today that our links and our itineraries, are the small means of our journeys in life. It’s not about seeing a beautiful scene or amazing blog post, it’s about how we marvel in the messages around us that change and shape who we are. Sightseeing makes us realize that the world is beautiful and we can be apart of that beauty, too. We can participate! We are creators. We are movers. We can create life and change lives in the world around us, but also within us.
Today’s destination is Santorini, Greece, an amazing picturesque island in the Aegean Sea. The architecture of the famous Oia takes your breath away, especially at sunset. Go a couple hours before sunset to wander around the narrow streets and get a spot on the old castle to watch the sunset. Hiking the island can be an adventure with its rocky terrain, but also beautiful fields of wildflowers and wild horses. Rent ATVs to get around to places like the Red Beach, White Beach or other towns on the island. Be sure to walk around the capital, Fira and soak up sunshine on the black sand beaches around the island. Also, might I add that Greek food is amazing and you must have gyros, Greek yogurt and Moussaka. I would go back here in a heartbeat — it truly was a dream come true to experience the culture and wonder of Greek island living.
I hope you enjoyed the first segment of Siteseeing Saturdays! Let me know what you think of this series and anything you would like to see next. Happy Weekend!
