... It's awesome and noisy and threatening and joyful. Our lives are golden. We get to take it all in. Five pizza delivery motos rotate in and out in front of us.

There isn't a place for big cruise ships to port directly on the island, so instead they do a tender, where small boats drive groups of tourists from the ship to the island. Blake, Rob, and I heard from some friends on the boat that there is a famous hike on the island from the town of Fira to Oia. Having no internet to do any major research of ...
