Travel Pic of the Week: Santorini, Greece

I wasn’t sure I would live through the turbulent voyage and the vengeful spirit of the Greek goddess, Nausea. The giant boat swayed to the point where Dramamine flowed almost as much as bodies gurgled in the aisle. The Aegean Sea was possessed.

Fortunately, the sea calmed and the boat finally pulled into port at Santorini. Then an endless series of zigzaging guardrail-less road climbed up the side of a mountain. I would soon discover many of Santorini’s drives included some form of cliff side terror.

While I could not keep the camera from shaking on the drive, I did stop and get the following favorite shots. This first shot was taken by the old churches in Fira. My honorable mention photos were taken along the walking path leading out of Fira.

  1. Ah, I remember it well, Devin. Rarely does one welcome other people on their honeymoon, but Tiffany and I had a great time with you two on Santorini.

    Those *were* some brutal conditions out on the Aegean, weren’t they! Just to put it in perspective for your readers, after Devin’s ship arrived, they shut down all ferry traffic on the Aegean for, I believe, a few days.

  2. Hi Eric,

    Yes, they shut down boats until we left, several days, later by plane. The best money I ever spent.

    Still, Santorini is one of the most gorgeous places I have ever seen.
