The Greek islands are as spectacular and crazy as everyone says. I went to Mykonos first for 2 nights and stayed in a hostel on the beach. It wasn't the nicest place I have ever stayed but it was on the beach and close enough to the town. The sleeping accomidations were a camp cabin with 8 beds. My roomates....4 guys from Long Island,NY. What are the chances I end up in a room with people that only lived 30 minutes from me in NY? They were actually a lot of fun and I hung out with them quite a bit. I also kept running into these 6 girls from Arizona that I met on the ferry, so I hung out with them too. The first night I tried to take it easy but still only managed to get to sleep by 5 am. The second I adventured around the city for awhile and then went to the beach in the afternoon. That night there was a big party at one of the clubs on the beach
I caught the ferry to Santorini the following day. It turns out the girls from Arizona were on the same one. I ended up jumping in with there group and staying at the same hostel. Much nicer place! Anyway, I have been adventuring around Fira and the Caldera. Yesterday, we took a cruise to the volcano in the caldera and cruised around the island waiting for the sunset. It was a perfect day. Today, I am off to hike Ancient Theira...if I can figure out the buses.
I will write again soon. Hope all is well!
