“When we were Young”
Maria and George originally met in preschool. Both locals born and raised in Santorini and George with Scottish heritage from his Mother’s side, they grew up almost side by side as so often happens in small places.
Maria remembers how George would tease her, pull her hair and take away her toys in preschool. Growing up they ended up going to the same schools and being in the same classes so a friendship grew that turned into romance in the early years of high school.
During college they separated, both leaving to study in different places and with a longing to discover life and meet new people. After finishing with their studies and both moving back to Santorini they rekindled their romance, now being sure that they wanted to move on in life together.
“We did date other people and we did try the “serious relationship” with others but it was never the same. Both of us wanted to get back together, it was never about being with anyone else, it was always just about finding our selves”
