After 12 hours of travel, our driver picked us up and zipped us around the Santorini cliff side. Everywhere I looked was a picture perfect moment. I dug through my bag to pull out my camera and realized I had left it at home. Boohoo.
So let me apologize in advance for the iphone photos below as they don’t do this lovely island any justice. Not one bit. First on our itinerary was the Santorini wine tour. The wine in Greece may not compare to those of France and Italy, but the tour was fun and took us to lots of interesting spots around the island. The island is known for their dessert wine, Vinsanto. It’s sweet and strong. Try it and bring home a bottle for someone you love. The mid-day sun burns hot on this island, so head down to the cellar and cool off.
You’ll sail around the Aegean sea, drink wine, dance, sing, and shout opa! Jump in and swim to a hot springs that will add 10 years to your life. And finally, when you’re fully waterlogged and just a little sea sick, set foot on land to hike a volcano.
