image captionMelissa Fleetwood: "Here's my favourite picture from my honeymoon in Greece. My husband and I were exploring the town of Fira, on Santorini, and this old boat was just propped on the roof of a building, overlooking the Aegean Sea. It was a good reminder that, like many cities that seem now to only exist for tourism's sake, this town used to be an ordinary place where people worked and lived. The sense of antiquity and living history is, of course, inescapable in beautiful Greece."
