Day 3: Santorini, Greece 2014 Part I

We started our morning with breakfast at the basement of Central Fira.

image

Selections of food was much lesser compared to Belvedere.

image

The mission for morning was to find national dessert, Baklava & Red Beach. We managed to accomplish the first mission at a bakery store.
image

Bret was fascinated by the huge donuts and he got one to try.

image

Back at hotel, we savoured the pastries and then hit the road for red beach. This time, Bret was really fast & steady. He kinda grasp how the road & routes in Santorini works.

On the island, there is no traffic lights and few signs on the road to give directions. And he made it.

image

Our very first adventure on land began…

image

To reach the beach, we had to climb to great height and carefully walk down to the shore.

image

Although I was confident in my steps, Bret was very concerned for me. His voice was at my ear urging me to be careful. We both agreed this place is totally out for children.

image

Red beach is composed of black and red volcanic rocks. Tourists can travel there by boat too.

image

This time, we paid for the use of sun bed and stayed a little while. We very much prefer the previous beach. Red beach is a much smaller beach, crowded and touristy. Also the red & black sand made the water looked murky and unappealing to swim.. although there were swimmers still.
image

We got some tan and head off to nearby Akritori Museum.
image

Bret & I are not into museum but my colleagues planned to visit the museum so we were hoping to bump into them.
image

There was no sighting of my colleagues but loads of rocks, stones.
image

Would have been better if we have a guided tour. After walking one round in the museum, we were back in the car looking for cafe. Didn’t take us long to decide on this unique restaurant.
image

The caldera & sea view was stunning but not the food.
image

It was so bad that we needed something really yummy so I suggested going back to Fira. After returning the car, we went Obelix for take away lunch.

image

Had Chicken Gyros takeaway. Everything in this aluminium foil was freakin delicious.
image

The potatoes fries & chickens were beyond perfections. Wonder if I find something like that in Singapore.

Around 3.30pm, our Day Tour Guide arrived at our hotel… together with my colleagues, we got to know the island a lot better…
