Santorini airport to Oia We arrived very early from the 05:15 flight from Athens and landed in Santorini at 06:20 in the morning. We had a sleepless night waiting for the flight in Athens airport for 8 hours, manage only to take a short 30 mins nap on the flight. The local public bus stop is directly in front of the exit of the airport in Santorini …
... is some soil and the locals grow food, farm animals and make wine. The Santorini wine was the best of the Greek wine so far, most of the Greek wine we've tasted is like a light sherry and not that great. We watch the sunset while having dinner, waves slapping at the table's edge of a fish cafe at the cliff base from Oia, The sunset's effect is created by the mist ...
... beach, watching the frontrunners sink more than a few beverages on the main party beach. I have now learned I'm much more of a short distance than long distance drinker so we left that until after sunset. The next two days, every time we told a local that we were Australian they replied "welcome home"...and they weren't kidding. Aussies everywhere - with the number 1 Australian cuisine - Parma's! Don't get me wrong, Greek food is awesome - but it was probably our ...
... best of all, the short 10-minute climb kept the tourists that flock to the Acropolis away, and we could take in the sight on our own terms. I’m typing this in an airport on our long (28 hour) journey to Nepal, and while we are very excited for the next leg of our adventure not having Emily with us feels strange. It was awesome having her with us for the last 2 weeks and we will both miss her!

... pot this holiday. After they have disappeared around the corner we make a hasty escape and head off on our way towards that archaeological dig at Arkmeni, where you take the right hand spur in the road and arrive at a car park with a small church and a random kebab stall, from here its on foot over the cliffs to the red beach, the way is pretty uneven so trainers are a better bet than flip flops if you want to make it safely to the ...

We arrived very early in the morning at 7am at the hotel and had to wait till 8am for the reception to open. Evita came at 8am and greeted us with a huge smile. Unfortunately the guests staying in our room did not check out early so we were supposed to wait till 12pm for the room to be ready. She apologised even though it's not her nor the hotel's fault as check in time is always in the afternoon anyway. We kept our bags there and went for a walk but we were too tired from the whole night of not sleeping in Athens airport so we decided to sit on the bench in front if the reception and wait. We fell asleep on the bench in the scorching sun and the hotel staff woke us up not long after when our room is ready. We managed to check in at around 10:30am as the guests left early. We appreciate the efforts of the hotel and all the staff to prepare the room in perfect condition in such a short time. The housekeeper is extremely efficient in her job as we observed. The staff is also very nice and we chatted with him few times, a humourous and polite guy.
We had the cave house just across the reception with a big shared patio and the view is amazing. The room is big and spacious with a double bed and a single bed. We kept the bed like a couch and the cushions on the bed is very comfy. Kitchenette has all the utensils we needed and the coffee machine makes good coffee. There is also a water boiler if you need to make some tea. They provide you with coffee powder and tea bags. The shower is really hot and the water pressure is strong as well. We have no complains and we really like the room. I would say its great for the price with a caldera view. Their other rooms must be much nicer but this is the only category we would pay for. We were even thinking to book another hotel without view which is way cheaper but we are glad we didn't. It's a great experience to stay in the historical cave house with modern amenities and awesome view. It was definitely worth it.
