I fondly remembered driving around the last time I was here (back in 2007), so made sure to rent a car again. It was interesting to see what had changed, and actually, a lot remained as I remembered it. (Just some more resorts popping up mid-island and around Oia mostly).
I rarely traveled with other people (except with wife since getting married) – so it was really fun/nice to have Hannah and Tim with us. Actually, we crashed their vacation… oops. Hannah’s “You should come!” turned into “OK see you in a few weeks!”…
We had an amazing lunch by the ocean. I’ll have another post about the food soon… but a little appetizer my wife shot:
Hannah found a really cute cafe to go to, and it was a quiet town without any crowds. The waiter/owner took our order on a tablet! A non-electronic slate w/ chalk!
We ended the mini road trip with a stop at Santos for wine, before heading home for another spectacular sunset (next post).
