This morning (May 18) we left the hotel at 5:30 am …
… to board a ferry to the island of Santorini.
I’ll skip over the five-hour ferry ride, as we spent the entire time in our seats. But once that was over, we found ourselves surrounded by volcanic peaks and gorgeous blue sea.
A quick bus ride brought us to our boutique hotel, Astir Thira, where we settled in for a short but full stay on the island.
In my next post, I’ll share a little about the volcano and its impact on Santorini. But for today, here are some pics of the ridiculously charming town of Fira and the sunset we watched that first night.
