Anneliese's adventure in Greece

18 July 2014

Ios day 2: today we hired a quad bike to adventure around the island. This is by far the best way to see the island! After being taken over by cars and scooters for a solid half an hour, we were brave enough to go the speed limit. We found ourselves on amazing secluded beaches, with the brightest blue water! We then went off the beaten track and ended up at Manganari beach which was beautiful! That night we went back into the village and had a gyros and I fed all the cats that were strolling around. For dessert we had THE most amazing creeps ever.. I had Ferraro and Dranna had snickers!

The next day Dranna and I headed off to Ios on the ferry. Once we arrived at Far Out Village, where we were staying, we just spent the day at the beach and by the pool where they have music playing all day. That night, we went for dinner in Chora village and sat at a rooftop restaurant under the stars.

After a 30+ hour trip from melb to santorini, we walked into our hotel 'El Greco'.. It was amazing! We spent from the 14th July til the 17th July in Santorini. Our first day there, we went to Perissa beach (black sand beach). That evening we caught the bus to Oia to watch the sunset.. We wandered around Oia and took heaps of photos of the white buildings cascading down the cliff face. It took my breath away, it was so beautiful! Then we went back to Fira to Tropical Aussie bar and finished the night at Murphy's. We met lots of fun people that were backpacking around Europe from all around the world! On our second day we caught the bus to go to the red beach but we had to catch a boat there and I was feeling a bit under the weather after our night out so let's just say the boat ride did not end well for me. That night we went out for dinner on a rooftop that overlooked Fira and the sunset and then we just wandered around the shops and top in the buzzing atmosphere.
