After a week in London, we flew to Athens and jumped on the first ferry type boat that was heading for the islands. After a few stops at some beautiful small islands, we arrived in Rhodes for a week of fun in the sun. I had secured, very last minute, a timeshare week on the island of Rhodes. We rented a motorcycle and toured the island and the black and red volcanic sand: enjoying the topless beaches and the chilled out atmosphere that embodies Greece.
From Rhodes we headed over to Mykonos, then eventually landing in Santorini where we both were blown away by the incredible beauty of everything.
I think Santorini is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. For our last few nights we rented a cave house, carved into the side of the volcano, perched up inside the cauldron that is Santorini. We had a private pool to ourselves and spent our days swimming, soaking up the sun and enjoying the exquisite beauty.
