Somewhere as beautiful as Santorini deserves its own post

An eight hour ferry from Athens sees us arrive in Santorini for what will be the last leg of our travels as a threesome (for now). As you can expect the island is amazing; everything you have ever thought and dreamed it would be. From the freshly white painted clay houses billowing up the mountains to the desert terrain to ride ATVs on.   IMG_0491

Santorini at its finest!

This photo is just before we rode donkeys down the mountain, I was screaming like a little girl, all the donkeys were tired together and my donkey was being dragged down the hill haha

Trying to catch a glimpse of the sunset in Santorini is hectic! The sun sets around 8pm but the crowd starts growing from about 6. The view is something I will never forget.

Final night of travel – our hostel hosts suggested a restaurant near by “Santorini Moy”. Jennifer Anniston had dinner there 20 years about and they’re still talking about it (she’s on the business card). Beautiful food, the most amazing atmosphere, traditional Greek dancing and plate smashing if you’re lucky

From ship to shore

Jumping onto shore the hangovers started to set in all at once, luckily we had accommodation booked for a night in Split. The next day Paul, Naomi, Ellie and I took a bus back to Dubrovnik to for a few extra days of the beautiful old town and surrounding city.

Our Airbnb host Anita, suggested a trip to the Island of Lokrum for the day which is not far off the port. The island is home to a monastery and a salt water lake.

A beautiful day spent at the beach and a fancy dinner later we are done in Croatia and off to Corfu in Greece! Now, if you are going to Corfu STAY IN KAVOS or BOOK A RENTAL CAR BEFORE HAND. We stayed near the airport which was close to the old town, I honestly thought a plane was going to run me over in the shower it was so loud. We were stuck out there away from the nicer beaches and nightlife but it was only for two days.

On the plus side, Naomi and I got fish pedicures! Siobhan, I know you would love fish touching your toes. Our feet were so soft and clean after, definitely something worth doing, also the pictures and videos turn out hilarious
