Where I stayed
New Westcliff Hotel Bournemouth
EasyJet have not seat allocations, so when time to board I made sure I was on plane at the beginning - I wanted that window seat. Got it and 4 hours or so later, and a few nice photos from the plane we landed on Santorini - in the rain!!!!! What the ....
Got on the transfer bus for about 1/2 hour to Oia (pronounced Ea)
Down some steep stairs and here I was, my cave apartment, private balcony and views to die for. On the cliff face as requested, in a whitewashed building (not many other types) and here I will chill. I gave the guy a tip and when he left I had a little OMG cry. I am blessed.
I walked around Oia for a while - Its going to be a full moon while I am here also!!! Went back to room and sat on balcony for a while having some freshly bought olives, then wandered up to the ruin nearby for some sunset photos.
Found a restaurant Blue Sky where I had Chicken a la creme (Greek dish) . Then back to my room for my first night in my postcard.
LEON: I watched the Rugby Union in the morning then I got out of bed and caught the shuttle to the airport and then a train to Bournemouth, with a train change at Clapham Junction. Made my way to the hotel where I am staying for the week. Checked in here about 3ish went for a walk into Bournemouth town and bought a few things for the course. Back to hotel, down the restaurant for dinner. Then crashed. Looking forward to tomorrow.
