Efxaristo Caveland

Our final day in Caveland, on Santorini Island has arrived. Yesterday we packed, cleaned, played with the dogs and drank some cheap white wine. In the evening we had some farewell drinks with the guests staying at the moment, and taught them some classic bad, drinking games. Today we were taken out for a lunch…

A tick off the ‘To Do’ list

One of our ‘To Do’s’ while here has been, to swim in the Agean Sea! Since arrival it’s looked spectacular, it’s almost torturous on a hot (ish) day to look down at that shimmering deep blue water, and no that it’d be freeeezing! But within the last week or so the weather has reached temperatures…

Santorini Island

From Athens we caught the Blue Star ferry, which cost €70 for two people, to Santorini Island. It took around 8 hours stopping at Mykonos and Paros before lucky last, and the most spectacular, Santorini. Lucky for me, I was exceptionally tired so I slept for about 5 of the 8 hours! So I found…
