We stayed in the tiny village of Firostefani. Our villa overlooked the caldera. It was quiet in a way I have never experienced before, and deserted. When we wanted company, a meal or a good bottle of wine, we’d walk the 2K path into Fira. This is the scenery along our walk.
Oia was a few miles up the street away from Fira. I liked the way it clung to the cliffs.
The musical fence made me happy
I thought this church was beautiful and was delighted when, on Sunday morning, I was woken by the sound of church bells.
Finally, I found my mermaid.
I thought this couple was lovely, elderly and frail, sitting quietly with their arms around each other. I imagined a lifetime of love and consideration between them.
Walking past this green door looked to me to be a perfect modern painting.
I’ve been in a lot of amazing places in my life, but Santorini was unique. I realized that I’ve seen man made beauty in a lovely setting like Venice or Angkor Wat, but I’d never seen any place where the natural scenery was so jaw droppingly tremendous. Santorini just filled up my heart! I hope y'all get there someday.
