This was my first visit to Santorini and I couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Recommended by a travel agency in Athens, Ikastikies offers an incredible view of the volcanic caldera. But what makes this place special is the warm hospitality of the owner, Georgios. From the pick up at the airport to the breakfast he serves in your suite, he shows his passion for hospitality and his commitment to his guests.
We stayed in the Spilia suite, which featured two bedrooms, a living area, kitchen, private balcony, and even a private pool! Although we visited during the off season in December, the view from the suite was still breathtaking. I would strongly recommend Ikastikies to anyone visiting the beautiful island of Santorini.

Still sore and moving a little slower than usual but finally got ourselves up and ready and caught the bus to Fira and then another bus to Firostefani to have another nice meal at Galini's.
Once again we enjoyed the view, fine food and being able to get some work done. We took the bus back down to Fira and then the bus to Katerados and stopped at the grocery store for a few
more things for dinner and headed back to our place to fix our dinner and relax.
... the lack of a queuing mechanism which would ensure fairer outcomes and the "could not care less" attitude of the driver. My weekly "how is your baby doing this week in your pregnancy" email this week foretold that I would be irritable and set off by small things. Well, I had a mini eruption at that bus station, had a go at the lack of organisation in general in Greece, the rudeness of people in general and the unfairness of the situation. Another couple from the boat, who ...
... the island. For our last night, we decided to dress up and eat at the restaurant at our hotel which was fancy. We watched the sunset from our balcony before heading up to the restaurant where we had some appetisers, and I had beef and Lachie had chicken which went down with a lovely bottle of wine and aperitif with chocolate. What an amazing evening! It was very sad waking up on our last morning, knowing we had to leave this beautiful place. The hotel ...
... dumbarses. I insisted we go to the police station as i was not handing my details out to anyone but them so i could officially have the story documented and after waiting there for their quad bike people to come we ended up leaving without any report done, me attending to their wounds and medicating them with panadol and nurofen and off i went again. After filling up with petrol....a whopping 4 euro..lol...i eventually found the black beach and the sunbeds ...
... cherry tomatoes stuffed with cheese. Wow.
We laughed and joked, swapped stories and learnt a bite more about Greece. It was a lovely afternoon. I cam ebsck to the hotel just after 5pm with the intention of watching a couple of tv shows before going to dinner but for some reason I fell asleep lol.
Perfect timing when I woke up though, I was just in time to watch another of the famous ...
