May 12, 2011 - Milos. Snakes? what do you mean snakes?!

The weather is much improved today, clear skies, and the wind has dropped a bit. Cynthea thinks we should approach another tourist to go halves in a car for the day. Someone arrived at the hotel yesterday (not all ferries were cancelled, apparently!), and as we go into the hallway her door opens, so we ask her. She is keen and we arrange to meet back at the hotel at 10.30. We head into town to buy a ferry ticket for tonight, EUR71 ($134), and ask about a car. They tell us EUR30 for 24 hours, and we tell them we only want it for 12 hours,...

That is better than 3am. We decide to...

Firiplaka Beach was great, the boys had a good...

Jun 1, 2004 - Speechless in Santorini

Countless former visitors and guidebooks raved about Santorini and its beauty. I didn't get it. But Santorini isn't just another pretty island. You arrive by floating into a sunken valcano crater "the Caldera". There are really no words to describe how dramatic it is. For anyone that's been to Crater Lake in Oregon, this is as close to a description that's possible. We found ourselves gawking and looking back at one another, not knowing what to say...it is difficult to peel your eyes away. Donkey's lug visitors up and down from the port...
