Interlude: Sanctuary in Santorini

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Douglas Dimlich

During the course of a hectic holiday visit to Greece that started with cancelled flights, lost luggage and meeting the parents alone without speaking a word of Greek, a surprise, post-Christmas trip to a virtually empty Santorini provided us with a brief respite from the frenzy that otherwise characterized our trip. From our welcoming committee of soon-to-be constant native canine companions to the spectacular, if atypical, view of the upcoming sunset that bid us farewell, "Santorini" now occupies a truly unique position in our shared lexicon.

Location: Santorini, Greece
