Santorini is one of the Cyclades islands in the AegeanSea. It is a volcanic island in the Cyclades group of the GreekIslands. Santorini is located between Los and Anafi Islands. It was devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC, forever shaping its rugged landscape.
Santorini is famous for dramatic views, stunning views from its Oia town, the strange white aubergine (eggplant).
The town of Thera has its very own active volcano.
: Check out some amazing pictures of Santorini below :
Many of the houses in Akrotiri are of major structures, some of them are three – storeys high. Its streets, squares, and walls were preserved in the layers of ejecta, sometimes as tall as 8 metres, indicating this was a major town of Santorini. In many houses stone staircases are still intact, and they also contain huge ceramic storage jars (pithoi), mills, and pottery. Noted archaeological remains found in Akrotiri are wall paintings or frescoes, which have kept their original colour as well.
The town also has a highly developed drainage system.
Santorini’s primary industry is tourism. Agriculture also forms a part of its economy, and the Island also sustains a wine industry, based on indigenous Assyrtiko grape variety. White varieties also include Athiri and Aidani, whereas red varieties include Mavrotragano and Mandilaria.
The Cyclades are part of a metamorphic complex that is known as the Cycladic Massif. The complex formed during the Miocene and was folded and metamorphosed during the Alpine oregeny around 60 million years ago. Thera is built upon a small, non-volcanic basement that represents the former non-volcanic island, which was approximately 9 by 6 km.
The 1956 Amorgos earthquake resulted in the demolition of many buildings in the north of Santorini, leading to the desertion of many of its villages. The expansion of tourism has resulted in the growth of the economy and population.
Santorini was ranked as the world’s top island tourist attraction from many magazines and travel sites such as the BBC, the Travel+ Leisure Magazine.
An estimated 2 million visitors visit annually.

Hey there! How you doin’, great I hope. We are back with another fascinating post on our Blog site Peaceof Mind.
This time we’ll take a look at the world’s most happiest country, Finland!
For the third year in a row, Finland has placed at the top of the list as being the happiest country in the world, with Denmark coming in second, followed by Switzerland, which pushed Norway out of the top three this year, according to The Forbes report. Check the full report here.
let’s take a look at some facts which are major components adding to the happiness of Finland :
Finland, officially known as the Republic of Finland is a Nordic Country located in Northern Europe. Finland shares its borders with Sweden to the west, Russia to the East, and Norway to the North & is defined by the Gulf of Bothnia to the West and the Gulf of Finland to the south that are part of the Baltic Sea.
In 1906, Finland became the first European state to grant all the adult citizens right to vote, and the first in the world to provide all adult citizens with right to run for public office. Nicholas II, the last Tsar of Russian Empire, tried Finland to make a Russian state and also terminate its political autonomy, but after 1917 Russian Revolution, Finland declared itself independent from the empire.
Finland was inhabited around 9000 BC, the last Glacier Period. The Stone Age introduced several different kinds of ceramic cultures and styles.
The Bronze Age and Iron Age were characterised by extensive contacts with other cultures in Fennoscandia and the Baltic Region.
While Finns have always been at the forefront of technological innovation, they know happiness cannot be found on a computer screen. While others go to therapy, Finns put on a pair of rubber boots and head to the woods!
Even Prisons in Finland are more like cafés and personal bedrooms!
Rather than punishing their prisoners, Finland focuses on major rehabilitation and preparation for a smooth reentry of prisoners into the society.

There are no bars on the windows, no huge gates, no fences.
By 7am, the prisoners are ready to begin their working day. A number of prisoners have jobs with local businesses, while the rest perform tasks organised by the prison.
Japan is an island country in East Asia located in the northwest PacificOcean . It is bordered by the Sea of Japan to the west and extends from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and Taiwan in the South.
Japan is the eleventh most-populous country of the world.
It’s magnificent to note that Japan was perhaps the only country to suffer by the drastic effects of The Second World War, and now it is the second largest contributor to the regular budget of the UN.
Check out some breath-taking and amazing images of Japan:
The blooms of hellebores, Viburnum Burkwoodii and Japanese cherries whirl in the golden light of spring evening.
The famous ‘Yoshino Cherry’ Tree. The tree that stands for ‘Sakura‘, the Japanese cherry festival. It is fascinating to note that while Japan has over 100 indigenous cherry varieties, 70% of the trees today are Yoshino, due to mass planting in the late 19th and early 20th century. It flowers for one week actually on average, but attracts thousands of tourists. Now isn’t it fascinating?
