Santorini Greece: Travel Guide & Photo Journal
Santorini is a gorgeous Greek-island in the Aegean Sea shaped by caldera (large craters formed from volcanic eruptions). It is rich in history, culture, and charming villages set to the back drop of a stunning coastline.
I recently visited Santorini for a wedding and had a wonderfully romantic time. Here's a snapshot of my favorite locations and activities on the island. Enjoy!
