An Island Tale: Santorini (Greece)


Travel is vision. So just explore the place and to go ahead with the thought we did a photography tour which was so helpful Olaf our photographer guide took us to untapped villages where we could Talk to locals.And wander and take beautiful photographs. Such planning takes you to the places which may just not be listed anywhere,or even if it is,you’d rather enjoy your own time. Santorini doesn’t always have to mean Volcanic tour or Oia .It can also mean your own search for exploration elsewhere.

Emporio Cultural Village is a small unspoilt village on a hill with a maze of tiny streets in Santorini.So small,that that it takes a while to grasp the peacefulness around. Even a pin drop would be felt a little away from the main road. The main entrance has the church and has local coffee and eatery shop with people mostly from the village who come or tourists would have known.

As we entered the village we had the question popping up our mind and  asked on why the homes in Santorini are white.He first said ‘Because they like the color’,and then stopped in amusement and said wait its because it keeps us cool during summers and hot during winters.

Megalohori lies on a hill creating a labyrinth of steep alleys and streets. The uncountable vineyards which extend beyond the countryside offer a magnificent setting and the best wines in Santorini. Megalochori is definitely a place to experience the rich tradition. In the center of the village, there a wonderful traditional square with taverns, restaurants and trees providing shade for a quick cup of coffee. The square is the heart and soul of Megalochori. It is one of the most picturesque villages on the island.

 Have talked about a lot in my earlier post which is entirely dedicated to Oia. Here are few of the more pictures from the streets of Oia. We walked the town of Oia (pronounced as “ee-aa) both the days and really enjoyed it. It is also known as ‘Apano Meria’ or ‘Anomeria’ and the inhabitants are called ‘Apanomerites’ Little quaint shops of local handicrafts, restaurants, bakeries and churches lined the streets of Oia .Oia in the far north is very beautiful, and known for its artists’ colony. With its blue domed churches and white buildings set along the cliffs. Oia is little  less commercialized version of Fira and the shops there are more artsy. The landscape  at Oia is way prettier too. Oia town is what you see on most postcards depict Santorini. So we were lucky we decided to stay in Oia!
