Stunning Santorini

This post in inspired by a friend of mine, Catty.  Her and her significant other are off to Santorini soon and I thought what better time to show some of my Santorini pictures and to give them an idea what they are in for.  Santorini is one of those places that simply must be seen.  The whitewashed buildings hugging the rim of the caldera, the spectacular sunsets, and the unique volcanic beaches make this a truly special place.

OH! Bruce this is truly stunning! I still need to get there! It's on my must visit list for years. But now that I have discovered Norway I think it'll have to wait a while. LOL! But thank you - thank you so much for this incredible awesoem virtual trip!

DONK! I know this is Greece but when I was in Morocco with some friends years ago, every time we saw a donkey (like, every 2 seconds) whoever screamed "DONK" first would get 5 points ;P
