We almost missed our ferry to Santorini but our stars are bright.
Make sure you reach Heraklion port, Crete Island and book your ferry tickets a day prior.
Our 40 minutes ferry ride was full of drizzles and selfies. We were booked on the Hellanic Seaways.
The charming Aegean sea looked stunning up close.
Probably because we had not yet known what charming really is.
Untill we hit the port, crowded with summer visitors.
Most hotels sort out travel to and fro the port. Our taxi was waiting.
Though there are mules too, if you have the heart to take one.
They have been around since ancient times for wine trade.
As we drove up the hills, the idea of leaving this island became as distant as the port.
We were driving to Fira – a moonlight of a land amidst gushing waves.
The historic museum is right along the alley and a peek wouldn’t hurt.
Spotting a B.C. bathtub was utterly fascinating.
After we settled, gorged on Chinese on the main Fira road, we strolled across the town of Pyrgos. Pyrgos village is the highest point of Santorini, a fortress settlement.
Cobbled lanes and silver bells strolled along.
Its a few steps climb, or you could opt for a walking tour.
We discovered the narrow paths ourselves, spotting houses that probably belong to Greek kindred.
It is difficult to say if a knock would be answered.
By the time we got to the top, we had spotted a hundred different houses with unique colored doors.
Photographing Pyrgos village was distracting. Every inch had a photogenic call.
Our first day in Santorini was peacefully blue.
We decided to end it with sunset and wine at Stani Tavern, run by a sweet couple. The sky tanned gracefully.
