Santorini is just as awesome and as fantastic as I expected. We got here yesterday and met some girls from England, Liz and Yiota. George and I rented 4WD ATV bikes and after meeting up with the girls again on the beach we invited them to go for a drive to watch the sunset at the lighthouse. That roooocked.
Then we headed back and chillin' in Perissa Beach, the area where we are staying. In the evening we went for some amazing Greek food (it's all amazing eh) and then went to a Canadian bar to try some Ouzo and have a great time.
This morning I got up a bit earlier and drove all the way to Red Beach, then walked to White Beach. After this I caught a glimpse of Black Beach. These names are for the colour of sand at the beach. In between White Beach and Black Beach I managed to find a tiny and super seculuded beach, and there was absolutely nobody there. I thought I'd take the opportunity to do a slight bit of naked swimming, haha. I'd forgotten my bathing suit at home, and there was no one else around... so, as they say, "When in Santorini..." haha.
The water was nice and warm (thank goodness) and then I drive to the lighthouse again. It was soooo awesome today. Now I am in the town of Fira, the capital of Santorini. George and I have only 4 more hours with the ATVs so we are going to get some food and then check out the big monastry before heading back to Perissa Beach. At 5am today I leave for Kos to meet my parents so I am excited for that!!
