santorini: on the edge of a dream
after my son and i left ithaka we traveled to the island of santorini, which is formed from the remains of a gigantic volcanic crater. after a cataclysmic eruption some 3500 years ago the crater collapsed into the caldera, leaving the famous half moon shape so often depicted in photographs. the cliff face drops away into the sea and provides some of the most stunning views in the world.
you feel like you're on the edge of the world here
it truly is a feast for the senses
here, pictures really do tell the story, where words somehow pale....
so i'll leave you with some images from a place that seems like a gateway
to another realm
