We couldn’t leave the island without visiting the volcanic caldera (that is still active). I have to admit that our outfit was very inadequate. It was hard to explore the surroundings in sandals but we survived.
Neither the sea trip on the boat wasn’t for me because of my sea sickness. Besides that, because I don’t know how to swim, I couldn’t take a bath in the hot spring and it was too far away from the place where wedocked (you had to swim to there).
We arrived to the shore just in time for sunset in Oia. At least that’s what we hoped. In vain we wandered the streets to find a quieter place for admiring the view. It’s been a long time since I last saw this kind of chaos. We’ve decided instead to focus on the spectacle made by the crowd because for sunset we didn’t stand a chance.
To make it up for the lost sunset, in the last evening, we made reservations at palia Kameni bar. Besides the generous offer regarding the cocktails, we could finally enjoy the reddish sky, watching the sun fading behind the volcano.
