What an amazing day! From the moment the Captain opened up the focsle deck so that we could watch the sunrise with hot chocolate and coffee as we entered the caldera until the Greek-style barbecue on deck at sunset, the day was full of breathtaking views. Santorini is a crescent shaped island surrounding a volcanic caldera where the island of Thira sank in an explosion in 1450 BC. The villages are perched on top of steep cliffs and after being taken ashore by tender we had the choice of a cable car or a donkey ride to the top, or climbing up
We took the teleferique to the top and then a local bus to the picture postcard little town of Oia where I think the classic travel poster pictures of Greece must have been taken
