Postcards from SANTORINI

In October 2014 my husband and I visited beautiful Santorini, a dream for many years finally realised. It was the first stop on a trip to Europe and what a way to kick off our trip of a lifetime! Santorini is a large, mostly submerged caldera (a cauldron-like volcanic feature usually formed by the collapse of land following a volcanic eruption). There are many different areas / towns within Santorini. Many tourists will stick to the very popular Oia, but I would urge visitors to explore the lesser known villages too. Here is a very small sample of my photos. It is a photographers paradise โ˜บ๏ธ

Sunset on our first night in Santorini. We looked directly towards the island of Thirassia.

We stayed in Firostefani. This next shot is looking along the Caldera towards Oia

A sneak peak towards Therassia

We visited a typical traditional Santorini village called Pyrgos

Make sure you take a sunset sail around the island. The wow factor is simply off the scale!

This is Ammoudi, our boarding point for the sunset sail. Oia is at the top of the cliff

The landscape is so dramatic from the water

The famous Red Beach as seen from the water


Whilst wandering around Oia we saw so many dogs and cats, but this lovely old soul absolutely stole my heart ๐Ÿ’ž

As the sun sets, so everyone flocks to the point in Oia.

And so the journey ends with a full moon over Oia

Thank you for taking the journey with me... My first Steller story @raejmartens on IG
