So… Have I mentioned that the Greek Islands are completely and utterly gorgeous? Because they are.
This image in particular is from the other island we visited: Santorini. What makes this island different from all of the other islands is that fact that is is actually a part of a volcanic caldera. That means a few things. That means there are remnants here on this island from past civilizations that are more well preserved because they were protected from the elements by volcanic residue. It also means the landscape here is different from the other greek islands. The beaches sands are colored differently… for example the one we stayed on had black sand, while one of the others we saw had red. It also creates cliff formations like this. It is easily one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited. And the diving wasn’t bad either. 🙂
