Day 41: Athens to Santorini

Today was an early start to catch the ‘ferry’ to Santorini. We were informed yesterday that our fast cat ferry  wasn’t running, so we were put on the slower boat. Turns out the slow boat was a ship similar in size to the one we caught from Italy to Greece. After a 7 hour trip we were on Santorini heading for our accommodation. What a spectacular place. The side of the island facing the caldera is exactly as you see it in the travel brochures. I’m sure the camera will be working overtime for the next few days. We had a quick swim in the smallest pool I’ve seen, then a wander to the main town on the island, Fira. Dinner was at a tiny restaurant next door to the hotel. One of the best meals we’ve had. Tomorrow will be a bit of exploring and maybe a donkey ride!
