Kamari Beach, Santorini: 36° 22′ N / 25° 28′ E

Hello. We here at otc got a jump start on summer by heading to one of our favorite parts of the world. On one of the islands a shopkeeper was telling us about a couple from Germany that has been coming there twice a year for over forty years.  I love the idea of having a great travel destination that you return to regularly.  It would probably be very interesting to see the changes over time.  I know people that don’t like to visit the same place twice. I also know others who go to the same place every year because it works for them and they like it. I think I’m in the middle. I try to travel to a new place at least once a year but I have my favorites that I will always return to.  I’m not ready to commit to a forty year streak but I always have a great time in Greece so I will definitely be back.

What camp are you in – never the same place twice(where to next), sticking with the tried and true(what place stole your heart) or a hybrid like me(what are some places you will always return to)?

    I'm in the – I haven't had a holiday in 6-7 years camp. I have had "holidays" but that's usually the at home resting kind. I would love to travel some more – yet I am hoping/ planning to go back to my last holiday destination again yet I'd love to voyage everywhere. Glad you're having fun and listening to some good music too 😉 Take Care

    Hey boo! I will always return to Jamaica. I just visited Myrtle beach for the second time, with the kids this time. I will probably go to Dominican Republic next year. But I'm not big on visiting the same place twice. It's nice to hear you are having fun. Beautiful beach, by the way!

    I go home, to Botswana, its used to be every 18months. Now its more like every 3 years. And to be honest, I am not sure when the next time will be. I'm feeling the urge to go somewhere else, maybe back to London, or Sweden. Or the carribean! Where should I go??

      I added Botswana to my travel list after watching the #1 Ladies Detective Agency. I love London but any of the places I have on the travel tab of my blog would also make good trips… like Greece 🙂
