Santorini

They say there are some places on this earth that are created by gods for gods.I say the greek island of Santorini is one such place.Whilst many holiday destinations succumb to the domination of the high rise here you can still see one of the greek islands relatively unspoilt.

It is touted by all the holiday programs as a picture perfect Greek island.If you havent already booked for this year and fancy heading to the Aegean it is worth considering.

From the white washed buildings and bluedomed churches, nestling atop sheer , dramatic, black volcanic cliffs to the lava beech of Kamari.From the Boutari Winary to Akrotiri "the Pompeii of the Agean Sea.Wherever you look this is an island of contrast and spectacles that will part camera from case and superlatives from mouth time and time again.

They say you can hear sirens above the lapping of the warm water against the base of the cliffs.They say even in its formation Santorini was a wonder of the ancient world.

I say decide to visit and I will gaurentee that the atmosphere and romance of this rugged island will intoxicate you and remain in your mind and heart forever.

Ive been there.I will gladly go again Even if it is for the tourists it is still pretty and the sunsets against the backdrop of those dark stark cliffs are still etched in my memory.

In comparison to built up mainland greece and the larger islands like Crete it does indeed retain its charm.There are also some new boutique hotels which enhance the experiance.

Tourism gets everywhere.
