Greece ~ Day 8: postcard


"After many days and thousands of miles and multiple modes of transportation - trains to planes to tubes to feet to planes to buses to boats to cars to ATVs to more boats and more boats, we're a mite tired. We are not lazy travelers. We must see. Eat. Experience. Explore. Wear ourselves out essentially. So we force ourselves to schlep to the town of Perissa on the island of Thira on the island cluster of Santorini in the Cyclades Islands in Greece, etc. Perissa is one of the beaches of black lavalicious, toe-searing, off-putting sand. We split our time between being sprawled, sweating under beach umbrellas or swimming in our hotel pool. Then, we are relaxed and ready - if reluctant - to begin our long journey home via a 10 hour slowboat ride to Athens, where we have another 10 hours to while away (from 8pm to 6am unfortunately), via a flight layover in Milan via two days in Ft. Lauderdale for a friend's wedding. Voyage!!
