Greece – Day 5, Thursday

Today we got up and packed our things and said goodbye to Santorini after making a mental note of the beautiful view from our veranda so it would be implanted in our minds forever.  After checking out, we got a taxi to the port and took a ferry to the island of Naxos.  It was about a 2 hour ferry ride to Naxos.  We passed many other islands on our way, the ferry even made a quick stop at Ios.  Our apartment hotel in Naxos is right on the beach, just a 5 minute walk from town, maybe a 10-15 minute walk from the port where we arrived but we took a taxi because of our luggage.  I definitely packed way too much and I only brought one suitcase!  I have to remember when going on a beachy vacation that you spend most of the day in your swimsuits!  Just outside our door to the right is a row of beachside cafes and bars serving all kinds of snacks, drinks and smoothies.  Joey is especially pleased that they all have big screen TV’s to watch the soccer Euro Cup…..or rather football.  We basically spent our first day here just strolling around taking some pictures, spotting out the markets and restaurants before eventually sitting ourselves down at one of the beachside bars for the night watching Croatia playing Germany while sipping on fresh fruit drinks and digging our feet into the sand. Croatiawon.
