Europe Here We Come Part 3 ” Santorini, Greece”

Early morning I drew the drapes back and woke up to the most glorious picture ever.  The type of scene set on a postcard.  We had arrived in Santorini, Greece.

Santorini is a small archipelago of volcanic islands located in the southern Aegean Sea, about 125 miles from Greece’s mainland.  It is also known as “Thera”, firing the southern most member  of the Cyclades group of islands.  Santorini is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic explosion.

Black-sand beaches, crystal clear waters and whitewashed villages that cling to volcanic cliffs make the island of Santorini a true jewel.

We enjoyed a beautiful view while dining at the top of one of the mountaintops.

My parents through the years had made some friends in Santorini so it was fitting to drop in and say hello.

My parents purchased some beautiful art work for me a few years ago at this store.   The most unique pieces I have ever seen made out of Murano glass  Every time they visit Santorini they always drop in to say hello.

In Santorini I came across a very unique jewellery store.  It had the most beautiful necklaces and bracelets and murano glass rings.  The items were all one of a kind.  Naturally I had to purchase a few items.  I would definitely come back to visit and spend more time in Santorini, Greece.

Natural Materials is the name of the store.  Its located right outside the cable car entrance
