I earned the Stampin' Up! incentive trip to the Greek Isles 2019! #stampcandy

Today I’m sharing photos from our tour of the island of Santorini, Greece. Neal and I joined a group of Stampin’ Up! folks to tour the villages of Oia (pronounced EE-ya) and Fira. Oia is where many of those stereotypical photos of Greece are from, with white buildings and blue domes (see the banner above.)

I used my phone to take some panoramic photos on my trip. The panorama software sometimes makes things look a bit wonky, which is why some of the lines are oddly curved, like this view from the village of Oia.

Walking along one of the straighter streets of Oia, Santorini. These villages are like mazes. Our guide said it was to get away from pirates and other marauders who used to land on the islands.2019 Incentive Trip - Santorini, Greece #stampcandy

There are lots of cats on Santorini, and they’re obviously used to tourists. They never seemed to even notice all the people walking right by them.2019 Incentive Trip - Santorini, Greece #stampcandy

The white buildings remind me of snow on top of the mountains.

Heading back to the ship at sunset. See the ring on the water at far right? It marks a shipwreck from 2007. A Greek cruise ship hit a volcanic reef and took on water. It didn’t sink until the next day, so everyone had time to get off safely.2019 Incentive Trip - Santorini, Greece #stampcandy
