Goodbye Roma hello Greece!
So has we head to Greece, before leaving Italy we drive by Naples and stop at Pompeii where we have a guided tour around the city of Pompeii! After having some lunch in Pompeii we head to the ferry were we stayed overnight to get to Greece!
When we were on the ferry there was so many Gypsy around try to steal things that the boys on our trip got on there high horses and become on gypsy watch!!! The funniest thing ever... Everyone was sleeping in their sleeping bags but also putting their bags in there also! Because this was going on and the guys were entertain everyone t took ages to go to sleep!!!!
We have arrived in Greece and have survived the gypsy!!! Haha it's is ok to Corfu we head, the bus drive wasn't that bad, I think that might have been because I slepted most of it. We arrive at our accommodation and it is beautiful it has a big pool, looks out at the ocean what more could you want!!! As soon as we got our rooms ob went the swims and down by the pool most of us went! We had some cocktails by the pool and stayed there pretty much all afternoon! So our first night in Greece, what do we do but have a themed toga party!!! It was so much fun, everyone dressed up in sheets ( they showed us how to make togas) and we all had orange material so we put it in our hair, around our arms, we were the best dressed toga group around!!
Today is Georges Boat time and to tell you the truth no one had any idea what we were in for!!!! So we get on Georges boat and he is got the driest sense of humour and can be very inapporatie at time but that's him and that what makes Georges boat as we learnt as the day went! The day was amazing and we had so much fun going for island to island stopping so we could go swimming every now and then we stop at this ine place were we did water sports! OMG the water sports were so much fun, i did the banana, donut, the couch & parasailing! George took us to this island called .... 'skinny dipping, hanky panky, jiggy jiggy, a wooo-a island' this is where you get to go skinny dipping! Well I will let you know I did take part but... I keep my swimmer bottoms on. :) you only live once haha.
After been out on a boat all day we get back to accommodation have a nap and then get ready for a Greek dinner, where we got heaps of food ( not as good food as I thought) with Greek entertainment and we also got to join in on the dancing!! Once we got back to the accommodation everyone went either to sleep or packed their overnight bag as we had a 4am start the next day!
Hello crappy 4am start! We head to the ferry so we get to Athens where the riots were happening, we get to the accommodation and the go on a guided tour of Athens, we see the Acropolis & Parthenon! A groups of us decide that we are golf to leave and get dinner and head back to the accommodation because we were so tired from such a early night. On the way back to the accommodation we see two guys break into a car!!! Was so werid to see happen!
1st of July:
Greek Islands time!!! I have been waiting for this bit of the trip for so long!!! So we have a 5am start to the day so we can catch a high speed ferry to get us to Ios in 4 hours which meant that we got to lay by the pool have cocktails and relax which is what we did!!! That night we all got together and went and checked out the nightlife... While I was dancing at a club called rehab I look across the room to see a friend of mine Matt from Cessnock, I run over and jump on him and we start dancing away... It was so good to see someone from home!!!!
Today we got to sleep in! Finally! Once we got up we went and hires out quad bikes and went all around the island going to different beaches and just seeing what the island had to offer. Then in the after noon we went and chilled by the pool again. Small groups of us went out again, ad we found a 1 euro shot bar, really I think it should be a legal, but we worked out that they must water down the shots to be able to sell them so cheap!
3rd of July:
You guessed it.... Once again we did nothing, chilled by the pool drove the quad bikes around. It is such a hard life at the moment! Ios is a party island in Greece and you can sure tell when it is night time, ever where goes off and the people go crazy!!!
:( time to leave Ios and head Santorini!! We catch a high speed boat that only took about 40 mins from Ios to Santorini. Well when I first arrive in Santorini I wasn't impressed at all I did get why it was so beautiful. The area we are staying in is the ghetto! Hahah had a massive nap from like 2-6pm and then went and got dinner and then back to bed I went!
Tara and I got up and hired quad bike and went cruising around Santorini to found the beautiful parts of Santorini which we did :D so I am a bit more impress with Santorini. About 12pm I came back to the hotel as I was feeling so sick, so I had a little nap and just relaxed in the hotel and then Tara came back and then we went for another drive. Tara and I went and had a romantic dinner over looking sunset in Santorini, it was so beautiful the restaurant that we went had all couples in it, we were the only non couple there was so funny!
Tara and I get up and head to Oia and chilled at the beach and then headed into Fira centre where we watch the state of origin with the boys... Queenland won :( but it was so fun watching it in Santorini with the boys they were getting into so much was funny as. After that head back to the hotel for nap time before getting ready for another romantic dinner with Tara as the sun went done.
Happy Birthday Mummy from Santorini!!!
Today I am leave Santorini for the Athens, I don't wanna go :( we have a 5 hour ferry ride and then we meet up with Egypt people!
