our big trip: in instagram

Here is a look at some of the moments that I missed with my camera, but captured with my phone.

Sea urchin eggs.  They form the 5 points of a star!

Our view from our apartment at Alea.

We ate snails at the celebration in Lefkes!

 Grilled octopus at Karina.  The crunchy suction cups were the best part!

We played lots of board games with Dimitris.  We also played some with two guys from Athens who'd heard about Alea Apartments through boardgamegeek.com, Andres & George.

Playing 7 Wonders.

The octopus.

Poor thing was trying to get away.

Kenton brought the game we'd given him for Father's Day, Hive.  I beat him, as we played a game at the beach.  :P

Being herded like cattle, off the ferry in Santorini.

There were donkeys!

Cute boats at the port on Thirassia.

Our cheap meal of choice: Gyro for €2.50 & an iced coffee for €2.50.  Not too shabby & oh, so tasty!

Taking a swim in our pool at the hotel in Santorini (Oia Sunset).

A common sign near the toilets.  We weren't supposed to flush our toilet paper, but I always thought it was funny that they include photos of a bottle & some other plant/octopus?? :P

My phone had a timer for the camera!  Plus, the photo shoot in the background is pretty funny!

Some of the artifacts that were discovered at the Akrotiri dig site.

A portion of a fresco discovered at the dig site.  I got corrected for trying to take a photo of Kenton "in front of the monument".  Apparently, that is not allowed.  :\

Our dangerous walk down to & back from Oia's port for a swim.

The long, steep stairway back up to Oia town.

Our much appreciated ferry cabin for our overnight ride back to Athens.  This was actually bigger than our hotel room in London!  :P

A nice, shady street, where we ate lunch in Athens.

 Heading off to Hogwarts!  :)

 Our last look at London before heading underground to ride the tube back to the airport.  What an amazing, unforgettable trip of a lifetime!
