Here are some of my adventures I had whilst in Santorini,Greece
Donkeys and Cable cars - Big big mistake, in Fira you can either get a cable car or a donkey or walk down the trek to get to the bottom of the port. Silly or shall I say stupid us decided to walk down the thousands of steps not realizing how long it was. Which happened to take a whole hour of us walking in a' hot hot hot' temperature along side about 70 donkeys whilst being careful not to slip on donkey wee or poop and holding on for dear life every step you took.
This is going to sounds so gobbledegook to you but honestly when I reached the bottom of the 'trek' if you can even call it that. I was so relieved and felt like I had ran a marathon,in all serious ness I had never been so hot and sweaty in my 17 years of life.
Advice for you all if you ever happen to find yourself in Fira 'GET A CABLE CAR DOWN AND UP' ! I am not even exaggerating a few people did fall and one lady had to be carried as she fell and damaged her ankle.
Finally when we were down we got a cable car back up and what took us an hour to walk down took us not even 5 minutes to get back up .
Louyo you bae - I absolutely love frozen yogurt and the thought of getting one once I had finished the trek was the only thing keeping me sane.
In the UK we haven't really picked up on the frozen yogurt craze yet but whenever I do see a Fro yo store I don't even hesitate.
I definitely recommend you trying this Greek frozen yogurt if you ever go to Greece.Because it is super yummy !
Fish Spa -Cue super embarrassing face pulling (hides behind hands)there a few fish spa places scattered around Santorini and when I saw kissing fish - Oia ,I just had to go in because if you didn't know the kardashian girls had their feet done whilst on vacation too !!!
I am getting overly excited writing this blog 1,2,3 and breathe .we used to have these in the UK but a lot of them were banned but YOLO as I am such a rebel I went and had it done.
it was such a strange feeling the fish don't have teethe so it doesn't hurt it was sort of tiggilish and strange.i dint notice any difference to my feet but the owner said 10 minutes for fun ,20 minutes for difference.Personally I don't think I could have coped with 20 minutes but i am glad i experience it.
Jett ski drama - So whilst on Kamari beach my Dad,Sister and Myself decided to go on a three person jet ski.Just to add this was my first time on a jet ski and probably going to me my last.
We nearly tipped up twice in the middle of the sea and then after our 10 minutes of me and my Sister holding on to each other and screaming,we were heading back to shore when ................ the jet ski tipped up and off we fell off into the sea,thank god we had life jackets on.
we are all good swimmers but as i was so shocked after being reassured this would not happen,i started to Panic and couldn't breathe .i felt like i was having a mini panic attack .my dad got back on the jet ski but every time i tried it capsized again so i told my dad to go back. a man came and saved my sister and everyone abandoned me and i had to swim back to shore ,bearing in mind i was the youngest..It felt like a Simon inbetweeners moment
This would have also been a perfect go pro situation
More advice for you don't go on a three person jet ski they are really made for two .
overall,I had a fantastic time in Santorini and it really is more magical than in postcards, it should be on many bucket lists as is a breath taking place and I will deffo be going back in the future.
did you have an holiday dramas ?
