If I could, I would

Folegandros Greece 

This was my favourite island out of all we've visited in Greece. There's barely much to do, mostly sight seeing. I remember how this guy told us 'Welcome to paradise' and honestly I don't think I can say that about Singapore hahaha. Don't get me wrong Singapore is great too, just that paradise isn't the word I'd use to describe it. On this island everybody knows everyone because there's just so few of them here. The main mode of transport were on donkeys and therefore most paths were really rocky cause they weren't meant for vehicles. Also on this island we drove in a jeep (which got stuck thrice hahahah) but seriously it wasn't easy to be doing left hand drive what more in a big jeep. Folegandros gave me the closest encounter to nature, it was very earthy and for the first time in my life I saw the sky entirely filled stars. I never would have imagine seeing so many of them it was as if the sky was infested with glitter. It was really an experience just so amazing. You could literally hear the howling winds at night and although it was freezing cold, I made sure I sat outside at night to write just to experience something like that. I really loved this place and I hope to be back again for sure :)
