As we all know Greece is in a bit of financial trouble at the moment and that has been effecting some of its core services. During our stay here we have been informed of all taxi drivers striking with only a days notice and air traffic controllers too. Luckily this hadn’t effected us, until Tuesday. We were due to catch a ferry from Mykonos to Santorini on Wednesday, but nation-wide strikes planned for that day included the ferry staff. So we had to either cut our stay short on Mykonos and leave on Tuesday or stay an extra night and depart on Thursday. We opted to leave early and have more time on Santorini. I’m pleased we did! It is a really cool spot and we have hired quad bikes to get us around the place, more on that in the next post.
In the meantime here are a couple of shots from our only night in Mykonos, the sunsets from these islands are amazing!
