TRAVEL with pat and lew

* Oia … pronounced Ia … at the very end of the island and definitely worth the trip

Posted by Lew Weinstein on September 25, 2010

We probably wouldn’t have strayed far from our hotel in Santorini, except for the arrival of a cruise ship carrying our good friends Rawy and Nijole. In the winter, we live down the lane from them in Key West. And they have an apartment in Paris, so we see them several times each summer. It also turned out we were in London at the same time in July. And now on Santorini the same day in September. In October, we’ll all be back where we started in Key West.

Pat with Rawy & Nijole

Rawy and Nijole took the donkey ride up the hill and we met them at the top. We walked around Santorini, made a stop at our hotel, and then took a taxi (about 20 minutes) to Oia. Why go to Oia when it’s so beautiful in Fira? The pictures below don’t begin to show how spectacular Oia is: white cliffs, rocks and buildings, with brilliant blue domes and highlights, a monstrously high cliff overlooking the sea. We had an excellent light lunch, walked some more, got a taxi back.
