The Beauty in Greece

Traveling has always been something that I hope I can do when I am done with college or even study abroad. One of the places that has caught my attention is Santorini, Greece. Santorini attracts thousands of tourists every year because of its beautiful scenery. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Basically, Santorini was the result of an eruption that happened around 1450 BC. The middle of the volcano sunk in and left many high cliffs making the island very unique in its geography. Though this volcano is now dormant it was once very active in the historic times. Something that I found very fascinating in how the residents of Santorini live, is their transportation around the island. Their taxis involve riding a donkey lead by one person to the destination of the customer. This is something that is really unique to people especially since in America and pretty much anywhere else we use cars as a main source of transportation. This make them unique in their heritage.

In certain parts of the island the beach has this orange- like color which is said to be very good for your skin. Another interesting fact that I liked of the island is that Greek people are some of the healthiest people around the world. They pile up their meals with vegetables and fruits and they also eat lots of fish. Of course, Santorini is best known for its signature white Cycladic houses that are lined up on the cliff tops. When the sun sets, it can be quite a beauty to see. And one day, I hope that I will be able to see this. images

    Greece is beautiful and even though it seems like a simple place it is actually a very iconic place for sets like mama mia which actually looks a lot like the first picture you showed. It seems very quiet but its alive with a rich cultural heritage.
