Donkeys

After getting off a boat below Oia, we decided to walk to the top. Halfway up the path, the donkeys wanted 'down', the trail boys proding them to go faster, with whips. With a high wall on one side and down on the other side, it was a very 'interesting situation'. With donkeys coming right at us, they did move off at the last moment.

After a hectic journey from Athens and having been cheated countless times by what seemed like everyone we came into contact with (but was really only cab drivers and restaurant staff) we were all beginning to regret choosing Greece over Italy for our vacation. However, upon arriving in the lovely village of Megalochori where we were to stay for a week in a stunning cave house, our anxiety and doubts at going to Greece melted away...

Sunset at the Temple of Poseidon

Everywhere we went on the Greek Islands the sunsets were spectacular. Each day I’d try to decide which was more incredible, the brilliant midday sunshine or the beautiful sunsets. My favorite was our last night in Greece, at the Temple of Poseidon. While waiting for the sunset I held my sunglasses in front of the lens and it made the colors even more dramatic than they already were.

I'd seen hundreds of photos of Santorini before I visited, but none truly conveyed the beauty of this island. The only other time I ever felt like this was stepping out of the Venice train station the first time and seeing the Grand Canal. Some places just have to be seen in person.

This was a photo I took of my fiancé on our leisurely walk through Rhodes Town. Needless to say I decided to crop him out and keep the locals. P.S. all is well with the fiancé!

This was a great little spot we found near the village of Fanes on the western coast of the island. Often, during the afternoon we would enjoy a picnic while taking in the scenery.

Cretan Goats on bluff overlooking the sea

We saw many goats in Greece and enjoyed hearing their little bells ringing as they walked. This group on a windswept bluff in Western Crete overlooking the sea was our favorite.

As we drove over the mountians we found this well hid beach beauty, tucked on the far eastern end of Crete. We stopped and had the most wonderful meal overlooking this beautiful view.

The Temple of Poseidon

The Temple of Poseidon

Everyone waits at the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion at sunset. We were some of a few in the crowds as we watched the sun set over the water. An appropriate tribute to the king of the sea.

Catch of the day

Catch of the day

Our days spent on the peaceful, quiet island of Paros were some of the most memorable days of our trip to Greece. One day we found a wonderful taverna on a small stretch of beach that we had almost entirely to our selves... with the excpetion of a gentleman who was catching octopus with his hands and hanging them on a line for an upcoming meal. Delicious!

Found this delightful view walking through Kastro town on Sifnos. The view fooled me at first and I thought the "water door" was just another blue-painted object. What a pleasant surprise!

Into the Setting Sun

Into the Setting Sun

As we sat on our balcony hoping to see one of those famous Oia sunsets, we toasted our wine to those travelers heading off to other Greek island adventures. We never did see that perfect sunset because of the low-hanging clouds, but we still loved the view!

Strolling through Santorini's Ammoudi Harbor, just below Oia, we enjoyed watching all of the local fishermen sorting and fileting their catches. This fisherman sat quietly on his stool, taking in the sights and enjoying the delightful sea breeze.
