At a restaurant in Santorini, Greece, they had octopus available. It was fascinating but, not appetizing. Another cafe had an octopus in a tank. The live one was very cool to watch.
Here’s a small caveat if you’re going to the town of Oia in Santorini. There are some stairs that lead down to the water on the North side of Oia. There are a little over 200 stairs. But, each step is sloped. So, it feels like more. It was a nice view. But, plan on taking at least a half hour down and more going up.
Each night there is a show that happens on the Northwest town of Oia on the island of Santorini, Greece. The show is the sunset. Everyone gathers to enjoy a beautiful sunset and they are almost always rewarded. Here, Santorini’s iconic windmill sits above one such sunset.
Many hotels in Santorini, Greece have these doorway arches on that outdoor path to the rooms. The door to the room opens to outside. This would mean “cheap hotel” in some places. But, the scenery is so nice here, you want your room door to open straight up to it.
Our latest trip was to Santorini, Greece. We left at night and it took us three flights to get there. So when we arrived, the sun was just coming up. We hadn’t slept in 24 hours and we were zombies. But, I was so excited and the scenery was so beautiful that I had to start shooting immediately.
It was an amazingly calm morning. A fog hovered over the island. It was completely silent. And the water looked like someone had laid a colored sheet of paper on it.
