05/13/2002 Entry: "Hey from Italy!"
So, update number 2 from the road! We have now made it to Italy (Brindisi), and are awaiting our connection to Rome. In the last 4 days we have taken 3 ferry trips, all longer than 8 hours, we have visited the Acropolis, Agora, and Theatre of Dionysos in Athens, and we have taken a day-long driving tour of Corfu. We stayed at The Pink Palace on Corfu, which was pretty much what we expected! Before leaving Santorini we rented a scooter for the day and toured the whole northern half of the island, with time left to visit a really cool winery. We only ran out of fuel once! (400 metres downhill from a gas station!!) The weather took a total about-face for our last two days on Santorini, with sunny skies dominating the day. On Friday we hiked up the active volcano in the center of Santorini's volcano, and took a swim in the local hot springs! The towns on the island are so high above the water we had to take a cable car down to the port, and we rode donkeys (no website) back up!! A great way to say goodbye to the island. We feel very blessed to have had a great introduction to Greece and a safe yet exciting trip so far!! We look forward to keeping you up to date!
