Colours of Santorini...

White and blue are definitely the symbol of the Greek Cyclades...but while in Santorini last week i was just blown away by an unexpected magical rainbow of different colours, flavours and aromas all around the island.

Thira (the way the locals call most of the time their home) is an incredible mix of red, yellow, purple, violet and even sometimes some green:-)

As Santorini is an active volcano and more or less a rock in the Aegean sea one may choose between .... a red beach, a white beach and the normal beach (which is a black-sand-beach)...In June the thyme blossoms transfer the dry and dusty landscape in a painting of Monet!

The local veggies: small tomatoes (drying in the sun) and white eggplants, the yellow-orange nets of the fishermen and the yummy seafood, the over 4000 years old culture...sooo many things to enjoy and discover!
