Ios Island Travel Guide: 30 reviews and 96 photos
There are many gossips about the Cyclades. From Ulisses to modern scooters in the Chora (centre) of town.. One book on these Islands is surely not enough and photo films are too little whenever you get to these islands... There is some kind of magic in the dust of the barren roads, in the crack of the fisherman's fire on a pitch dark cliff curve in Santorini and in the unbearable heat of red, black and white beaches... People there are as similar to Italians as they resemble them. Phisically if not mentally. It has been a great journey...
4 friends and I left from the port of Trieste (Italy) and sailed with a huge commercial and civil fright to Patrasso (35hs of boat) and then 4 hs of coach to Athens and 9hours from there to Santorini....unforgettable journey sleeping on the warm windy deck and peeling peaches in the shadows.
You start out in a loud excitement when you first step on the ship, lay down your stuff, choose where to sleep and have a sandwich. Then, as hours go by, you feel the silence in yourself and observ the moving horizon and become something that belongs to both the ship and the sea especially when you hear the water being crushed and the white foam gushing up and the wind violating every corner of the deck. Which eventually becomes a friendly and adventurous environment where to sleep with good friends around you. And while you have your "windy dinner" this is the view you get. Extend your legs and relax.
- Pros:One of a million, still good architecture, food and fun
- Cons:Not enough time for everything
- In a nutshell:Hike in the morning, bathe, run, ride, buy, shoot and breathe
AT THE " FAR OUT BAR".... Well you had your sun in the beach, you had your swimming in the water, the frisbee, the gyros... more travel advice
