A Travellerspoint blog

Sanotorini, Greece

Falafel, red/black beaches, and quad backs, oh my!

Yesterday we spent several hours on a ferry


(which you will hopefully get a glimpse of soon if our video ever uploads) stopping at a few islands before arriving in Santorini. Our house, Artemis, graciously greeted us at the port and brought us to our hostel/hotel, that our Brits recommended.

Highlights have included a walk on the black beach, dining at sunset in Thira


early morning run through the country-side, cruising around the island on our quad-back (aka ATVs in the US)


swimming in the Mediterranean on the red beach,


and eating decadent and divine desserts. Tonight we plan to watch the sunset (clouds permitting) and dancing the night away in the discoteque.

Note on Greece: you are not supposed to put toilet paper in the toilet. Their system can't handle it. Instead you are to dispose of your toilet paper in the trashcan/rubbage bin next to the toilet. Sort of gross. We have been forgetting a lot. whoops. I hope we don't have an unpleasant blog to write you tomorrow about the disasterous consequences of this.

Tomorrow, a ferry to the island of Naxos!!!
