Pure Magic! The Most Romantic Island in the World!
   Santorini is an island which I've heard of, seen many images of & dreamt of visiting. I finally got the chance in 2003 during my visit to Greece. Santorini is however not an island to talk about but rather one to walk about. It is a happy place & I met my very own "Tom Cruise" there ;-) An amazing encounter, a charming guy with whom I've an interesting conversation.

Santorini is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic explosion, destroying the earliest settlements on what was formerly a single island, and leading to the creation of the current geological caldera.

A giant central lagoon, more or less rectangular, and measuring about 12 by 7 km (7.5 by 4.3 mi), is surrounded by 300 m (980 ft) high steep cliffs on three sides.

On the fourth side, the lagoon is separated from the sea by another much smaller island called Therasia; the lagoon merges with the sea in two places, in the northwest and southwest. The water in the centre of the lagoon is nearly ...
