Had a really good stay at Dina's Place. The host George was awesome to deal with and had lots of information about the island. Location was perfect as well. Would recommend Dina's to a friend.

Now we know it is famous and I suppose it is spectacular however ...
... but with the wind stronger than the day before and the sky looking rather bleak we were not too fussed. The fact that we had seen little of the island didn't overly play on our minds as we had used the time to relax and plan the next month of our trip in addition I think that we were a bit depleted when it came to caring about ruins, churches and temples.
So it was off to the port where the real Greek adventure began.
