Aegean to Santorini, Greece
16.12.2011 - 16.12.2011
Arrived at Santorini and the place is pretty spectacular.
The ferry had been very inefficient and chaotic in loading and unloaded at each port. But at Santorini, and the stop just before it, the wind was up and the sea was very rough. Then we saw how impressively quick loading and unloading can be, while the ferry bucked like a wild horse.
At Santorini the ramp actually rose away from the dock about 2 metres during the transfer process. Although we had gotten safely off by then.
Have booked into a hotel for the night. Again, no passport or ID checking. And I don't think he even bothered with our names.
The colours of the buildings around make me wish I hadn't chosen the colours for my bedroom yet. They would seem like odd choices but blend together extremely well throughout the town.
A few other tourists are around, though this is definitely still the low season.
Had a fantastic dinner at a place that did a good fried squid and a yoghurt with honey for dessert.
