So we have a new room and it is lovely. The room itself is on two floors with the bed up on a mezzanine floor. The balcony is just what we wanted with a view of the caldera and no-one passing in front. Today we went on a boat trip to the new volcano that is growing in the centre of the caldera. It is called Nea Kameni and first appeared above the water in197BC, so about 1500 years after the massive blow out that destroyed the Minoans. It has erupted several times since ...

This morning i got up at 9.15am, showered, dressed and went to the breakfast room. After eating i went back to the room and got ready for the day. I then went to reception, used the WiFi and meet some people that were heading into town. We caught public bus into town and then i went for a walk around.
