This photo will not be complete without this story – one of the highlights from my Oia trip. On one afternoon, as I was walking up to the Sunset view point, I saw this dog running up and down the streets with a very anxious face and barking nonstop , I couldn’t see anything that could be related to what he was doing till I looked up at the sky and saw what appeared to be definitely his master paragliding over us and it was so sweet to see the dog following him in the direction that he was flying to . Very soon, I found him at the very edge of Oia when he could go no further, waiting for his master to return.
