The Vacation

Having finished his wine and tapas, George began his one-mile trek north on the tiny, windswept island off the coast of Africa. The tourist surveyed the landscape which was dappled with thousands of holes protected by walls of stone stacked upon stone. Aside from the wind the island was also known for the fact that it was created by thousands and thousands of volcanic eruptions, which resulted in rich, ashy soil capable of retaining moisture for months. This soil, especially when combined with the moisture carried by the air through the small gaps in the stone walls, created ideal conditions for the grapevines buried in the holes, creating possibly the most peculiar looking vineyard on Earth.
