In Santorini and Naxos just after the US elections
Our outlook on life improved once our boat landed and were picked up and taken to our hotel for three nights, Manos Villas. Our room was huge, with a nice balcony overlooking the pool. Since it was the low season, Kamari was a ghost town, but we lounged around for a little while and relaxed on the rocky beach. We rode the bus back to the main city of Fira where we walked along the western edge of town which is beautifully cramped with bone white houses perched on the cliffs high above the sea. The town and views were amazing and it finally gave us a good feel for what the Greek Isles were all about. We spent a good amount of time walking through town, and then watched a lovely sunset before heading back to the hotel.
The weather didnâ€™t cooperate for more sunbathing the following day, so we packed up our bags, checked-out and got a few hours of work done in Fira. After lunch, we headed back to the ferry terminal to catch the boat to our next island destination of Naxos. In Naxos, we stayed at a guesthouse called Pension Sofi. It was a nice little place and they showered us with hospitality the entire stay – beer and cheese on check-in, Haley a rose, home made wine and olives, gift wrapped souvenir magnet and Greek coffee.
