Being extremely but extremely irritated by the cold weather here in Serbia (yesterday was -6!!) I've decided to "warm" myself- with looking at this summer's pics... Most of u already know I was in Santorini (in September when I finished my job as a travel guide in Greece)...completely unplanned...which is always the best at the end!!
Santorini (or Thira, which is also the name of the main city) is a volcanic island in the Aegean sea that belongs as well to the group of Cyclades islands. Called as one, but actually it is a complex of five islands. Santorini is the main island and around are: Thirasia and Aspronisi and the two small volcanic islands Palea Kameni and Nea Kameni. Once upon a time this island had a round shape but today's half-moon shape is a result of a natural catastrophe - big volcano eruption . With this explosion is also explained the tragedy of the great and marvelous Minoan civilization (Crete, II mil.b.c.). The eruption left a large caldera surrounded by volcanic ash which is a huge tourist attraction today!
Santorini is the true "pearl" of the Greek tourism and a cosmopolitan place well known for its: amazing beaches with black and red sand (Kamari, Perissa, Red beach...), archaeological places like Akrotiri, excellent accommodation, restaurants and nightlife, great food (fish and sea food , fava; Santorini's cherry tomatoes, white eggplants...), wine (Vinsanto), and of course- paradise for shopping!!!:)))
Imerovigli, that is the name of the beautiful village where my bf and I were. Next time I will show the gorgeous hotel where we stayed so stay tuned and dream about summer like I do!;))
p.s. I hope u're getting ready for the New Year!;))) HAPPY THURSDAY!!!!
