Crusts of land mark the rim of Santorini’s spooky 10 km wide and 1,250 ft deep caldera. The largest, curving around the northwest, is Thirassia, part of Santorini until the two were blasted apart in 236 BC.
In one of its pumice quarries a Middle Cycladic settlement was discovered, pre-dating Akrotiri, though there are no traces of it now. The main business on Thirassia is growing tomatoes and beans on the fertile plateau; the largest village, Manolas, has tavernas and rooms to rent.
Excursion boats from Oia make trips out to the burnt isles’, Palia Kameni and Nea Kameni (born in 1720), both still volcanically active, especially the Metaxa crater on Nea Kameni, which last erupted in 1950. However, even though the local brochures promise `the strange volcano which cause you greatness’, be forewarned that some people come away disappointed. The tourist trail up the mountain is a bit difficult and stinks of sulphur. Most of the excursions take people to swim in the sulphurous mud nearby and hot volcanic waters around
Can you make a living planning weddings? Yes. As a self-employed professional, you can either charge a set fee for the wedding or a percentage of the total cost. Your income can be uncertain when you first start planning these extravaganzas, but as your reputation spreads and you gain more experience, your income can increase dramatically.
Of course, you will make more income on an elaborate, huge wedding, but several smaller and simple weddings will be less stressful when you are starting out and, when the separate income is added together, you will probably make the same amount of money.
Some agencies who track salaries report yearly incomes in the $50,000 range for wedding planners. One such agency, PayScale, currently reports these average hourly rates for the profession:
* California $28.00
* Georgia $27.50
* Massachusetts $20.64
* New York $15.00
* Louisiana $14.00
* Pennsylvania $10.23
* Texas $9.00
As with any self-employment, your success depends entirely on your creativity, reliability and marketing skills. There

Planning a wedding is certainly a challenge and many brides are now turning their attention to warmer shores and considering getting married abroad, perhaps on a beach. But how can you be sure that this is the right decision for you? After all, this is your big day so you want to get it right. One of the biggest drawbacks encountered by people trying to plan a wedding abroad is the ability to communicate their needs and requirements effectively. In fact, this will often put people off booking a foreign wedding all together, which is a real shame because there are things you can do to ensure your big day goes to plan, no matter where you are.
Getting married in your home country will usually involve lots of close communication, with everybody from the florist, wedding venue, reception venue and even the minister officiating the ceremony. With a beach wedding overseas much of this communication is lost. In many cases, the bride and groom will not even step food in the wedding and reception venue until the big day itself and you will find that many plans are made last minute. This

Most photographers will charge a half day fee of around $500.00 to spend a few hours walking site.
