The Illusion of Floating: A Guide to Santorini

August 17, 2015

It’s quiet standing on the edge of the caldera, as if sound was swallowed whole.

Santorini, Greece

The waves, so far below, make textured patterns that ripple when boats wake.

Santorini, Greece

The feeling is buoyant; the illusion of floating.

They say this island, remnants of fire and cooling ash, stirs what lies deep beneath and brings all to surface.

You can’t escape it’s eruptive nature, it’s transformational heat. 

Fuel your fire.

What to do when you go:

Watch the sun go down < < or come up > > at the lighthouse

Learn about ancient greek instruments and mythology at La Ponta, in a 13th century Venetian Tower 

Take part in a 1940s greek wedding at the White Theater, break plates and dance

Lay on a red beach

Lay on a black beach

Lay on a white beach

Walk from Fira To Oia

Swim to the church on an island at the tip of Oia
