Santorini Travel Diaries - Exploring Fira
The Fish Spa:
We came across a fish spa and I thought it would be a great idea for Kevin to try it out for the first time but he ended up convincing me to try it out too. I screamed for the first 2 minutes of placing my feet in the water. It was such a weird experience having so many tiny fish eating my feet like they were candy. My feet seemed to attract a lot more fish than Kevin's - I guess that means they were either more delicious or more dirty (this is nothing to be proud of :-))
After our soothing fish spa, our feet felt so relaxed and clean. It was like getting a pedicure and foot massage. We then took some time to walk around Fira - just like Oia, the marble-stone pathways are very narrow and also boast a variety of souvenir shops and restaurants.The Art Gallery:
We came across a beautiful art gallery that immediately caught my eye. They had on display super vibrant floral canvases and gorgeous bronze sculptures.This gigantic bronze sculpture is Icarus. Do not quote me on Greek Mythology but Icarus was the son of Daedalus, a master craftsman and creator of Labyrinth. The two were running away from Crete after being imprisoned by King Minos. Daedulus created two pairs of wings made with feathers and wax and gave one to his son, Icarus. He warned his son not too fly too close to the sun lest the sun’s heat melt his wings. Icarus disobeyed his father and flew too close to the sun causing his wings to melt, thus falling to his death into the sea.Visitors are not allowed to take pictures at the art gallery but I couldn't leave without taking a few shots. These two pieces were my absolute favorite for obvious reasons - the colors are just magical. I would love pieces like this in my house.
OOTD:I was wearing washed out ripped jeans with a super light spaghetti strap top. I had on some stylish sunnies that are currently sold out but you can browse other gorgeous sunglasses from Sassy Jones Boutique by clicking on the link below.
Thank you all for stopping by; stay tuned for part 2 of this post.
