Santorini, Greece – Princess Cruises

We anchored just off Santorini at 8am this morning. We have been here before but it is still a wow experience looking up at the white washed buildings perched up on the cliff.

We took the tender boat ashore and then caught the cable car to the capital of Santorini – Fira. Fira has all these narrow, cobblestone lanes filled with colourful shops. Along the way you get these amazing views over the bay and over the brilliantly white washed buildings, shops, cafes and blue domed churches. It is quite a unique landscape.

We happened upon a bar that was showing the All Blacks v England test match in Dunedin. There was 30 minutes to go so we stopped off to watch the All Blacks beat the English by a point – 28 to 27. A win is a win : )

We then ventured to a roof top cafe that had amazing views over the bay – it was good to have a birds eye view of our boat.

We then re traced our steps and caught the cable car back down to the bay where the tenders were leaving from.

We spent the rest of the day relaxing on the boat before enjoying some champagne on our deck as the boat up anchored and headed for Turkey. It was a stunning evening – certainly one of the most picturesque places in the world.013 022 IMG_0298 IMG_0305 IMG_0306 027 028 030



This blog was originally set up to share our 9 month adventure around Europe and the USA with friends and family in 2014. On returning to NZ in January 2015 I decided to carry it on so I could continue to share any future travel adventures - it has become my electronic travel diary. I hope you enjoy and get inspired to visit some of the wonderful places we have visited.
