Thursday, September 6:  The only beach I visit in Santorini is Red Beach, near Ancient Akrotiri, with its high red cliffs.  I’m actually not much in a beach mood here; for some reason I’m most interested in just admiring the landscape and the whitewashed villages.  But while here, I figure I should check out some of the beaches on the east and south coasts of Santorini.

Red Beach

Red Beach looks interesting enough, but for some reason doesn’t entice me for a swim.  I climb around a promontory over a rocky path and check it out.  Then I leave.  Would you be enticed to go swimming at this beach?

After checking this out, I return to Villa Galinia to have a beer on the deck, take a shower, and then head back to Oia for its spectacular sunset.

About nomad, interrupted

As of July 15, 2015, I'm now taking a break from living abroad. I'm living in Oakton, Virginia and looking for my next opportunity. Last year, I lived in China and taught English at Sino-Canadian International College. I also taught at a university in Nizwa, Oman for two years, and in Korea's public schools for one year. I love to travel and have been to 24 countries.
