Santorini Sunset

Santorini, Greece 

When I graduated from high school, all that I wanted to do was to travel. So, when filling out the questionnaire for my grade 12 yearbook, under "Ambition" I wrote — watch the sunset in Greece. Feeling bohemian and poetic next to my more practical peers who were writing things like 'become a doctor' or 'own a home in California', I didn't know if I would ever achieve this goal, but felt excited at the prospect of just writing it down.

It wasn't until I was sitting on a whitewashed stone wall on the island of Santorini in Greece years later, watching the sun dip below the horizon that it hit me that my high school ambition had been fulfilled!
