... The view is stunning, you can sit and look at the white town with blue domes perched on black cliffs and lose track if time. It's all white and blue and black. The narrow central road of shops and cafés along the cliff top curves and allows views of the town. The narrow road itself is all marble is an experience to see. A big part of Santorini is black volcanic ...
... Mykonos, with less people in their towns (we hiked through Lefkes to prodromos and Pisa livadis and probably saw 20 people). After nearly getting stuck on the far side of the island, an eventual bus turned up (on Greek time), giving us the chance to watch the sunset over Parikia (paros' main town) and prepare for Ios. Our ferry bought us to the party island mid afternoon on another really sunny day - only this time, NO WIND :) Therefore we hung out all afternoon ...
... from lagers ubiquitous to Africa and Eastern Europe. We were glad we got to share our time on such a picturesque island with our friend Emily.
After Santorini we took the 8-hour ferry back to Athens, and spent our last day with Emily doing some shopping and eating a nice meal complete with wine. We also found our favorite place in Athens - Filopappou Hill. The hill was home to some simple ruins, but had a commanding view of ...
Second day with the quad bike and we are up and out by 10am this morning heading South via the main road to the Red Beach. We stop off for a quick coffee and snack at an excellent bakery at the junction where you turn of the main road to Perissa to the Red Beach. As we are leaving we get stopped by some other UK quad bikers who are looking for Perissa but manage to send them off in the wrong direction as my map reading skills seem to have ...
... appears to have been eating to much baklava and Greek pastries as she is not the zippiest car on the road. Actually she is more like a big fat Greek noona. It takes a long time to wind her up and she has a small problems with any hills. She struggles up all of them in 3rd. Maybe I will have more luck with the GPS. As I look across at my GPS in the passenger seat alternating between screen dumps on the iPad and the Greek road atlas, I think maybe I will let this one warm up a little ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsAethrio Hotel Oia
We booked Aethrio for a good central location and it delivered on that front.
We were aware that the hotel was not on the caldera edge with sunset views and were quite unsure if we should spend lot more for a sunset view from the hotel or room. We decided to save the money and spend or on nice lavish dinners instead.
You get the views from anywhere in oia. We did not mind coming back to the room and not seeing the view from there as well. Watching the sunset with other people was a lot of fun. The crowds actually applaud omnitel
the sun. Hs spectacularly set on the horizon. It's the only time I have seen people applauding GOD.
Breakfast was god event, hotel was lean nice ppool, helpful staff. I would recommend.
