Volcanic-like Santorini is perfect for the fiercest of all signs, says celebrity psychic and astrologer Inbaal Honigman
The fiercest of all signs, those born under the sign of the ram love to sizzle, so there’s no better holiday destination for them than the volcanic–like Santorini, with its scorching sun and black sand beaches.
