Most people associate the Greek islands with their summer holidays. The Cyclades islands are not known for their green pastures. Surprisingly in the Winter the island of Santorini takes on a new colour - That of Green! Yes Green. The pictures tell the story, check them out.

The footpath to ancient Thira is easy to climb or for the more adventurous, run. This path will take you to a beautiful church. Not to be missed.

Church on the rocks. Probably one of the best places on the island to reflect, meditate or just to pay your respects.

#Santorini Running from one end of the island to the other. Starting location Oia village going to the lighthouse located at the other end. Insane inclines made this run extremely challenging. But the best way to really see the island. 27km total distance covered. Tip:Bring water!

I was exceptionally lucky to have the best December weather. A sharp contrast to the previous day's stormy encounter

Running the length of Santorini island. The grand finish!
