Yesterday was a museum/gallery/rest day as the weather was even worse than the day before. The good news is that I Have just poked my head outside and the sky is blue, no wind and much warmer. Anyway, there are two excellent small museums within easy walking distance so we headed off first to the Archaeological Museum which houses finds from …
Well we survived drving around the island. Oscar said it was the second most terrifying thing he's ever done. He wouldn't tell me what the first was but it must have been pretty bad. Our hire car was something straight out of Soviet Russia. A very small nissan micra, battered to death, suspension totally shot and I literally could not see out of …
Our first accident occurred night before last. Now in my defense I have to say that I have opted for uber sensible shoes this entire adventure, not a heel to be seen. However, feeling that since I was in one of the most beautiful places on earth, I should up the dress code a tad for dinner. So I donned a boot (well two actually given that I have …
... accompaniments as the background cast and the sheer brilliance of colour palette playing lead is indeed very consuming. Our destination next on the agenda is the outer island detached from the actual caldera called Thirasia. It is here where we wander through the basic food shelters and select which chargrilled item takes today's fancy. Should it be the squid or octopus, maybe the swordfish, the lobster chunks also pass the muster. I do the right thing and have a mixed skewer. ...
... are, Fira, the capital and Perissa, the beach.
We hadn't got much sleep the night before so naps were in order. Whilst the other two continued their sleeping bliss, I headed to the beach. It is beautiful, with towering rocks edging one side of it. Most interestingly, the sand is black, a result of the island's formation from a volcano.

First off they pick you up and drop you off from where you are arriving from, which is SO nice to have since the road and streets can seem a bit intimidating when you first arrive, there is no stress on having to find the place.
The staff who works there is great ! From morning to evening they are always there to assist you on any information you need, they book your tours for you, hire a car, or just simply share their knowledge of the island with you. They are so polite and do make you feel like you are more than welcome.
It is a 100m walk to the main center of Fira , all of the restaurants, shops, bars, ect. Its also a 2 min walk to the bus station if you dont have your own means of transportation to go to any of the other places on the island!
Will tell my family and friends who plan to travel to Santorini to stay here.
Great job and keep up the good work .
