Images from the ferry to Crete while still in the Thira caldera.

The town of Oia on the cliff in the distance looks like snow or guano or sulphur deposits.

  1. Of course my favorite is the anti-crepuscular rays second from bottom, but the crisp cityscape between the two doors is delicious too.

    Amazing, I left from Santorini on 1 Oct 2018 for Mykonos. Saw many of the same sites you did 🙂 Too many tourists at sunrise and sunset for my liking but interesting all the same.

      We almost could have run into each other. Trying to walk through Oia at sunset was ridiculous. I suspect many other of the islands would be a better experience than Santorini. How was Mykonos?

        I agree about Oia at sunset, sunrise wasn’t much better. Mykonos – well, I only had 1 full day at Mykonos T
        own and Little Venice (I went to Delos the second day), but the tourists from the cruise ships made it crazy packed and the windmills at sunset were wall to wall people. If I go back I’ll go somewhere the cruise ships don’t call and off the tourist radar (if there is such a place).
