No island better epitomizes the Greek experience than Santorini. From the breathtaking views that never pall of sugar-cube houses pasted onto the high cliff tops of the caldera, washed by the cobalt sea and a light so pure and bright it makes you blink, to the sun that dances on the edge of the world as it dips into the Aegean Sea and continues to sparkles throughout the night in the smiles of the Santorini people. #JSVolcano #Jetsetter
My tour would end in Greece as I visited the ruins of the past and cities mentioned in the Bible. Possibly have a "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" moment? ;-) Then I would get on another cruise ship to take me back to the states.
