Travel Journal - Paros and Santorini

As we waved goodbye to Aliki and boarded the high-speed ferry to Santorini, our lives erupted with the Greek highlife! This island is buzzing with life, shops, people, Greek street vendors, and unforgettable sunsets. We had fantastic meals on rooftops, Grecian gardens, in Oia, and aboard a catamaran on the high seas. I think it is safe to say we can give ourselves a high five for the tour thus far.

Travel Journal – Athens and the Greek Islands

It is always an adventure in travel getting on a Grecian ferry out to the islands. It is a combination of long lines, suitcases, and lots of fast-moving people and cars. But we clambered aboard and disembarked like a well-oiled machine – and after climbing the Acropolis the day before no less! It was certainly a busy and energetic 48 hours from Canada to the Greek islands.
