Day 119- Travel to Santorini

Today we got up at 3AM again to get our 6AM flight to Santorini! Our flight was only 40 min long and we saw the sunrise out the window of the plane! 

When we arrived, we had several hours until our room would be ready for check in, so we started to check out the island!    This place is crazy beautiful! We followed a skinny, rocky path that ran along the cliff overlooking the ocean. That path took us down to the city of Thira (aka Fira) where we walked around for a while before grabbing some lunch at a cute outdoor restaurant. We both had drinks and sandwiches and our total was only 11 Euros! We thought this place would be really expensive since it is an island that caters heavily to tourists, but the food is very affordable!

On the way back from the city, we walked up another path to the Three Bells of Fira. It is a picturesque spot where you can see the iconic blue dome and bells of one of the many Catholic Churches on the island.

After our adventure, we walked back up to our hotel. After taking a nap since we didn’t sleep the night before (as I said, we got going at 3AM), we sat outside of our hotel with a glass of wine while we watched the sunset!

You can see in the photo above that we have a hot tub, but don’t be too jealous because it doesn’t work!
