We arrived in Athens after a 9 hour flight, not too bad for me, but Meg was very relieved to get off of her longest plane ride to date. Very sleepy, but eager to get to Milos, we took on the Athen’s metro, as the bus system went on strike minutes before we were about to buy our tickets.
After a decent, but long 22 hours of travelling on planes, trains and automobiles (and boats), we made it to our hotel in Milos, Galini! It was super cute, clean and on the most adorable beach that had a smaller cove of sorts on the side of it. I was rather smitten with that section. It was around 8pm and we had the beach to ourselves. We sat on the roof of an old boat shed, listened to the waves crashing below and watched the sunset. What a lovely welcome to Greece!
Woke up, beach, beach, beach, eat, sleep! Not too shabby!

We woke up a little earlier to get waffles before going on a sailing tour of the west side of the island. Everyone thinks we’re 15, and we got our waffles serves pre cut up, with children’s cutlery.
The sailing tour was fun and we got to see loads of beautiful spots, only accessible by sea. We went swimming three times, though only two of those were by choice. Getting pushed off of a sailboat by a slightly off hinged Greek man, check!
After the sailing tour we got on our ferry to Santorini. More to come on the Santorini portion of our adventure at a later date 🙂
