We woke just after daylight to find ourselves sitting off the coast of the island of Santorini.
Wow! This was not what we expected to see, with these massive cliff faces crowned by what we first thought was snow but on closer inspection we discovered were actually white buildings. We were sitting off the town of Thira. Santorini is actually situated on the rim of a very old volcano which is said to have erupted in 1646 BC.
This has to be one of the bucket list items that needs to be ticked off on a visit to the Mediterranean. It is a very majestic and spectacular location. We visited both the town of Thira and Oia (pronounced ee-aa).
Here is a great video of the Santorini Funicular taken by Merrisa…
