Sifnos to Oia, Santorini, Greece

Today we took the high speed ferry from the island of Sifnos to the island of Santorini. We turned in our rental car and had coffee while we waited for the ferry.

Given how unpleasant our last ferry ride was and the fact that is was very windy today, we both took seasick pills and as a result it was a much more comfortable ride. The boat was bouncing over the waves like a high powered motor boat. It was also bumping and rolling a lot. I think several people got sick but thank goodness not us.

In Santorini we rented a car. Duke is very happy that it is a fiat Panda but he is not happy that he had to pay an “over age” surcharge. the rental car guy met us at the dock with our car.

We are staying at a wonderful hotel on Santorini. We have our own deck and hot tub. And the view is fantastic.

We had an excellent gourmet dinner at the hotel and then soaked in the hot tub.

  1. All right, now we’re talking! Food looks pretty but not much of it. Is this place real expensive with the pool and hot tub? And a overcharge for seniors? What the hay? Hope you are having a good time.

    1. It is quite expensive… $330 a night or so I think. I suspect that is cheap compared to what they would charge in August. They close for the winter at the end of the month. We are enjoying it all enormously


  2. Santorini looks gorgeous! Thanks for sharing! Hoping Duke gets the opportunity to ride a polo pony someday! and looking forward to your report/video on that!

    1. Duke agrees with you. I think they also have an underage surcharge. When Duke asked the young man renting us the car if he thought the surcharge was fair the man said. “well they are taking on more risk…. Of course not for you… but in general”
