Day 7 – Monday 29th – A quest to find a Kiwi daiquiri

Monday was our last full day on Santorini, and we had our last hotel breakfast of Greek yoghurt, honey and nutella. We decided to head to Monolithos beach for a paddle rather than jostle with the crowds in Kamari. I still struggled with the sand temperature … Continue reading

Day 6 – Sunday 28th – The day we were almost extras in a yoga video

We headed out for breakfast at a yellow restaurant on the Kamari boardwalk. It was one of the only ones with a varied breakfast menu and I really fancied some pancakes. Afterward we planned to head to Emporio and find the windmills although … Continue reading

Day 2 – Wednesday 24th – Brick beds, beach time, beers and big pizzas.

I woke around 9am feeling a bit rough, unsure if this was due to the gusty air con or the brick of a bed! We decided to check out the free breakfast, reviews online were average at best so we didn’t have high … Continue reading

Day 1 – Tuesday 23rd – Dazed and confused in Santorini

We booked a very last minute (for us) trip to Santorini for some summer sun before our November holiday. Late June was ideal to avoid the School Holiday crowd but still get great weather. As the flights had shot up … Continue reading

Day 6 – Sunday 5th April – Brunching at The Border Grill

Our last full day in town started off with a frenzy of last minute shopping. I decided I could definitely squeeze some more into the new suitcase! I had heard people talking about Ross before, but had never ventured into … Continue reading
