I have never seen the ocean.
I would love to live in Santorini. It’s a small Greek island that has all this light, and the sunsets are amazing.
This country became part of my imagination thanks to the last Olympic Games being in Athens–you know the one. This is the games that allowed us to know Michael Phelps is really Aquaman (he has to be! The boy is a fish!)!
But I digress.
It was the pictures of the sunsets that got me. It was the pictures of the sunrises, the colors and lights that strewn threw windows that got me. When a YouTube beauty guru Jackie Aina went?! And showed how BEAT, snatched and SLAYED she was?!
I had to go. I must go. It’s one of the reasons why I’m getting a passport. The other reason is to shoe shop internationally.
Besides, I’ve always wanted one of those big hats that Audrey Hepburn wore in My Fair Lady to sunbathe with.
As a side note and homage-
(shouts to Aunty Jackie! Jackie, Jackie, Jackie Jackie!
Jackie, Jackie Jackie!
Jackie, Jackie, Jackie, Jackie! If you’re a fan of hers, I know for a fact, you just did her intro in your head!)
