Santorini Greece

Santorini has been called the most spectacular of the Greek islands and you wont hear any argument from us.

AirportAfter taking a Tender to Athinios Port (the New Port south of the Old Port) a bus took us zigzagging up the hill to get some views of the island. Thats the Santiorini airport (LGSR) towards the right

CalderaA shot of the caldera thru the bus window whilst riding along the road

ChurchWhite walls with blue dome is a familiar theme for churches in Santorini


BlueBut its not the only place blue is used. I wonder if it has something to do with the colour of the sky and water

ChurchA church in the main plaza in Oia Village, with bells and blue dome of course

CloseupCloseup of the artwork above the door

It must be tough to live here and be forced to look at scenery like this every day

Self portraitDoes this qualify as a self portrait?

ChurchA church in Fira

FiraFira is above the Old Port where our ship is anchored.


WalkingWalking along to where we can get down to the docks

Our shipLooking over the edge you can see our ship
(the one with four masts)

Getting downFira is 1000 feet above the Old Port,
Theres three choices to get down to the dock:
by Donkey, by foot (down the same trail the Donkeys take),
or by cable car. Guess which one we took :-)

Looking back upLooking from the cable car back up at Fira,
on the left you can see the walkway/Donkeyway
