santorini highs

sunny 42 °C

hello everybody! santorini is absolutely unrealzies.... ok lets start with the 15 minute windy road up to the small villages.. ya the towns are on top of huge mountains!! santorini was actually created when a volcano went off and broke up the island.. more on the volcano in a bit.... we hit up the black beaches our first day here, our hotel is located 30 metres away from the beach, the black sand is incredibly hot, they have boards for people to walk on because its soo hot, and we laid and baked all day.... teh day after we felt kind of adventurous so we went to a travel agency and booked a full day excursion around santorini which visited the volcano, the hot springs, thirissia island and lastly stopped at oia for the best sunsets in the world.. it was amazing, i stole a rock from the volcano which took us 30 minutes to climb up molten lava, the volcano is still active by the way, its hotter then hell on this thing, next we went to the hot springs (the last thing i needed after a 30 minute hike up hill|)... followed by a small place on some island where we enjoyed cold fries because apparently the power was out... next we went to this town called oia for a sunset.. teh climb up was 220 huge steps so we decided to take the donkey taxi!!!! wow what an experience... imagine a line of 5 donkeys going up these steps... and were not tied up together or anything!!! it was nuts.. the one dude who worked there would yell at them and do the motorboat with his lips to get them moving... laura laughed the whole way up.. while my donkey felt like it was gonna collapse because of my 220 pound physique.. he hated me and i hated him.. it was a long 5 minute ride! but anywya my internet time is up... its very costly on the islands...... ok ill talk to you soon...
