Hello Massagee

I have just returned from one of the most beautiful islands I have ever visited!

I went to Santorini in Greece, for the wedding of my big brother.

He got married in a vineyard, on top of a mountain, overlooking a volcano it was pretty epic.

From the moment we arrived on the island I was fascinated by a small white wall, clinging half way up the side of the Messavouno mountain. 

Early one morning after breakfast I decided to climb the mountain to find out what was behind the wall.

There was an awesome hiking trail leading up to the area loads of cool lizards about,
Erhard's Wall Lizard, hooded crows, swifts and even a falcon I have never seen before called Elenora's falcon. 

When I finally reached the wall I felt like my heart was going to burst out of my chest. I couldn't believe what I found... The Spring of Zoodochos Pigi a tiny little church in a little walled courtyard with a tree and behind the church, a cave with the oldest natural spring on the island, perfect for cooling off. In the church you could light a candle for lost souls and there were lads of chintzy religious paintings of the saints, which I always love.

At the top of the mountain was the ancient city of Thera, amazing views and an amazing historical ruin. 

It was definitely one of the best places I have ever visited and I would highly recommend it.
