Santorini and Atlantis...the story in pictures
So we spent the last two days on the Greek island Santorini....it is believed to have been the location of ancient Atlantis before the volcano here leveled it. It is widely believed Atlantis was built on the inner volcanic island of Santorini with bridges reaching out to the rest of the island. What this island is now is just a crescent shaped outer volcano rim. But that rim is massive. I cant imagine the size of the eruption that left it in its current state. We rented some 4 wheelers for the last 2 days (15 euro a day...best deal ever)...and drove all over this island...here are some photos
With only two days left on this trip we are headed back to Athens....and we are talking seriously of our next trip....and we have decided!! Costa Rica in the fall and all of you are invited. Seriously! But be ready to zip-line, raft, and surf because that is what we plan on....
