Angela's odyssey through Greece


30 September 2016

Day 8 25th September 2016 Today we explored Oia, taking pictures at iconic places was the caldera in the back ground. This place is just breathtaking! Amazing views for every spot. We walked down to Amoudi bay in the afternoon, what a steep hill! Should have taken the donkey back up. We had a lovely lunch along the water. We found a different spot for the sunset tonight over looking the caldera. Lovely end to our stay in Greece. 🇬🇷
Day 7 24th September 2016 Sail day! Today we sailed around the island of Santorini departing from Oia. We went to the hot springs, red beach and many other locations around the island. We went snorkeling, however does not compare to coral bay! We had a lovely BBQ for lunch. We went to sunsets for dinner tonight fancy dinner with a great view of the sunset.
Day 6 23rd September 2016 We are off to Santorini! This island is very different to Corfu. Green landscapes now gone, replaced by volcanic mountains. The view is every bit as amazing as all the pictures I've seen. Our accommodation is perfect! Of the main walkway with private access. Two nice outdoor areas and all the latest appliances and fixtures. We walked around the island exploring the walkways of Oia. Plenty of tourists looking at the sunset. It was very windy our first night but still amazing to be on Santorini.
Day 5 22nd September 2016 Today we took a trip to Corfu town. We walked all around the town, walked to the top of the old castle and ate amazing food. The view was spectacular with islands in the background over the water. In the afternoon we took a boat trip around the island looking at caves and different beaches. Was nice to see the island from a different angle. Our last day in Corfu was fab 😊

Day 4 21st September 2016 Anther day in beautiful Corfu! Buffet breakfast was delicious 😊 we walked the other direction today and didn't get to see much, I think we missed the stairs down to the beaches. We did however walk down to La Grotta which was this amazing little grotto with a spring board and a rocky area to swim (apparently it was in a movie). We spent a few hours by the pool with cocktails and tanning. After lunch we walked down to the main area and went on a boat cave tour. Great boat trip but only a few caves. It was great to see the island from a different angle. In the way back we tried the local ginger beer 🍺. Few more hours by the pool then dinner at the restaurant hotel.
Day 3 20th September 2016 We have arrived in Corfu! A soloist beautiful!!!!! Rocky hills, green landscape and the beach! Mostly cloudy morning with a sunny afternoon! Our resort (akrotiri) is amazing, definitely the best here in paleokastrasia ( restaurant, pool, beach access and rocky lounging). We took a long walk around the area today. Many little hidden coves, 3-4 beach areas surrounded by rock and the marina. We went into the the aquarium, not much to see. 4 course dinner at our restaurant which was good value.
Day 2 19th September 2016 We have arrived in Athens! The hotel is a bit shabby but good enough for one sleep! The streets and buildings of Athens look a bit poor, Greeks live a bit differently to us in Australia. We took a hike to the Acropolis which took forever to find but well worth it! Beautiful view of the town on top of the hill and what beautiful historic landmark. Then dinner in a market street, tomatoes here are to die for! Next stop Corfu!!
Day 1 18th September 2016 The adventure has begun!! 20hr trip turned into a 22hr trip after a long delay in Dubai! Lovely flight from Perth to Dubai very smooth and plenty of food! Dubai airport was HUGE! Duty free everywhere! I used one of those traditional toilets (disgusting).
