Travel Guide

Travel BookTrail style to Santorini with Patricia Wilson


It’s an island popular for cruise ships:

“A cruise ship slid towards the quaint port of Kato Fira, three hundred metres below the house. Santorini was the fashionable destination for a new breed of tourists. Wealthy cruises arrived daily, much to the glee of shopkeepers and tradesmen.”

The scenery and animals:

…the tall cliffs topped by a town of church domes, bell towers, and canvas-sailed windmills.

From the port, there’s a rather dubious ride up the hill on the back of some poor donkey to get to the main town. In the hot sun, with luggage and tourists on their back.

The dusty abandoned city…

There’s a sense that the dusty abandoned city is about to reveal secrets from the earth.

“Despite uncovering an ancient metropolis buried in thirty metres of volcanic pumice, to date with hadn’t found a fragment of what the public would regard as treasure. The prehistorical capital appeared far advanced of anything else in the country. However, we suspected that before the island erupted, the population had left with their treasures.”

Santorini and Atlantis

“The Atlantis that captured Plato’s imagination hundreds of years after its disappearance. The magnificent and wealthy island that the Egyptians traded with and wrote about in their hieroglyphics.”
