Dana Villas - Santorini, Greece

Nestled on the caldera’s cliffside in Firostefani, Santorini, Dana Villas offers gracious accommodation in chic rooms and suites complete with beautiful sea views. Restored with respect to the island’s traditional architecture, all units come equipped with modern bathrooms, private kitchenettes, and 21st century technology. Elegantly decorated, the suites boast wonderful balconies/terraces and some of them have soothing Jacuzzi bathtubs. Facing the glistening 70 sqm swimming pool is a wonderful open-air restaurant serving Greek and international cuisines accompanied by breathtaking vistas of the caldera.

05.08. - Episode 5 9 to 10 minutes in delay due to Swimming
12.08. - Episode 6 ca. 30 minutes in delay due to Swimming
19.08 - Episode 7 ca. 30 minutes in delay due to Swimming

my favorite part of each unique month here
  • January:the feeling on the first well below zero day when the hot air gets snatched out of your lungs the second you step outside.
  • February:the deafening quiet of blizzards and that simultaneously scary-cozy feeling of knowing you just can't leave, the snow's too deep for anything
  • March:when the snow starts to melt and everything has this very subtle yellowish tint, like all the colors of summer are being choked back ready to finally snap back
  • April:you remember how rain sounds. you remember how rain smells. rain <3
  • May:warmth. you go outside and literally cannot stop smiling because it's warm again and how is that even possible.
  • June:everything is alive again and how does the world smell so good?
  • July:the scent of rivers and the feeling of swimming in water that's just cool enough to be a relief from the air
  • August:already dreaming of winter again
  • September:the leaves all catch fire and the air dries out. fall smell of dead things seeps in
  • October:the best. dry leaves blowing in cool hard winds across roads at night.
  • November:only silver and pale purple left. all other colors have gone to sleep.
  • December:first snows. the smell of fires and snow settles in again.

I am ___

To give yourself over to another body
That’s all you want really
But to be owned and consumed by another
To swim inside the skin of your lover
Not have to breathe, not have to think
But you can’t live on love, and salt water’s no drink
You’re dying of thirst so we feast on each other
The sea is still our violent mother
The blood round here pours down the water
Each wave a lamb lead to the slaughter
And like children that she just can’t teach
We break, and break, and break, and break ourselves upon the beach
—  Poem by Florence Welch, written for the “Queen of Peace/Long & Lost” music video.

[Dean]

“Y/N! Y/N, I’m so sorry,” Sam said, pulling you out of the water. “Are you ok?”
“Of course I’m not ok, you stupid moose. You almost drowned me!”
“I didn’t almost drown– ok, I sort of did. But I saved you. That’s gotta be worth something, right?”
“Just get me a towel, you idiot.”

It takes all she has in her not to kiss Beca again, properly this time; really kiss her. To pin her against the railing and place soft, tender kisses on her lips; kisses down her jawline, down her neck, across her collarbone. To wrap her arms around her neck and kiss her until she can’t feel her lips.

chloe’s just as bad babe you’re so thirsty
