Firostefani, Thira 847 00, Greece
As I walked from Firostefani to Imerovigli, Santorini then back I noticed this clay pot or vessel leaning against the white wall and buried in black volcanic rock. I thought, "Well, that's interesting." Not exactly what I would consider art, but...

Παναγιάς Μυρτιδιωτίσσης, Kamari 847 00, Greece

This little private church is probably the most photographed stop in Oia. Our rented house was right next to it but lower on the steps so we could see lots of people getting lots of photos. Married couples would take their photos next to it,...

Save Place
Thera 847 00, Greece
Being in Santorini was like a dream come true. The breathtaking views were like none other I had ever seen. The white buildings against the beautiful blue sea. I spotted these two dogs and thought to myself, "Wow! What a life. What I wouldn't give...
