take me back to greece please

23 Jun

we spent the jubilee week gallivanting across the greek islands. were we sad not to be waving our flags in the rain? um, no.

super clear santorini water.

santorini.

a jetty in milos.

our lunch. everyday.

tiiick.

interesting things about greece:

1. despite being in a spot of economic strife, nobody was shy about charging 4 euros for a filter coffee. greece was NOT a cheap holiday.

2. every single cab driver i asked wanted to stay in the euro. they regretted signing up in the first place, but knew life would get much worse for them if they left. a 25,000 euro mortgage would double in size were they to go back to the drachma.

3. greek people are actually still called adonis, pereus, achilles, athena. i felt like i was back in year 10 drama every time i spoke to peracles, the amazing host at our hotel in santorini.
