I get motion sick in the backseat of a taxi, so this was going to be an experience.

... glad we did! It was amazing!
The next day we 4 wheeled ourselves to Red Beach for a swim on a volcanic rock beach! Followed by a wine tour and samplings at Santo Wines.
The next days were pretty similar- 4 wheeling fun, swimming at the beaches, me recovering from my ear infection, eating Greek food, browsing through the most amazing handcrafted jewellery stores and enjoying the incredible sunsets.
