South India - Kumbhmela Festivities
I don't know of any other islands in the world that have been photographed as much as the Greek isles of Mykonos and Santorini. White-washed buildings against volcanic landscapes, picturesque windmills, blue church domes against the azure Aegean Sea -- both islands provide scenery beyond compare.
My vacation on the islands was both unplanned and definitely unstructured – but with calm seas, beautiful beaches and raving parties on Mykonos and stunning sunsets, motorbike, ATV and donkey tours on Santorini – a flexible vacation was both feasible and practical. It is hard to decide which island is more beautiful - each one has his own beauty. In fact, the two islands really complement each other.
