Well here is a little update as to what my holidays looked like...
I got the chance to go to Greece for a week! I have wanted to go to Santorini for such a long time, and finally it happened. I arrived in Athens, spent 2 nights there, and then went to Santorini for 4 days. I was planning to go to the Island of Mykonos, but there was no ferries running between the two island for the week. I guess that is because it was just before the really busy tourist season starts. I went to Greece with two of my friends from Kuwait, Claire and Stephanie. Brad was suppose to be in Russia at this time on a school trip, but it was cancelled due to Visa issues... He could of come with us, but I guess he figured being the only guy with 3 girls would be a little too much! ... Here are some highlights and pictures of my week in Greece.
Here is my first picture taken... in Athens near the Acropolis... just doing a little shopping!
Here I am in front of the Acropolis... this is more like the backside of it... the other side is under major restoration.
More of the Acropolis...
At the old port in Santorini
On a boat going away from the Island... or town of Fira...
Lava Island... it was crazy the contrast in colors from red to back...
More of Lava Island.. and the beautiful blue water surrounding
Our boat... and the swim we had to make to go to the hot springs..

So much fun!!
We had to go up many windy roads to get up to this hill... but was a great view from the top! Also it led to Ancient Thira...
