  •  I spent a month traveling (5+ / 0-)

    the Cyclades. Athens to Mykanos, Naxos, Paros, Anti-Paros, Santarini, Crete, Ios(bleck) then back to Mykanos and then Athens. Started the trip by myself and by the time I got to Santarini there were 25 of us.

    The music was good but what blew me away was looking through window boxes that someone looked through thousands of years ago.

      backpacking days I recall the Pink Palace?

      You certainly made a lot of islands and a lot of friends along the way.

        18 year olds, broken glass and vomit.  It might be a good party island for 18 year olds but when you are in your 30's it's bleck.

      Watching the sunset, and everyone applauding.

        one November. Bad weather kept the ferries/planes away so stuck there until that was over and all the Athens owners were closing up for the season and going back home and we left with them on the ferry. was kinda fun.

        Beautiful sunsets.

        All the bars in Little Venice are wonderful but for a quieter evening, Kastro was spectacular.  One night my friend and I were watching the sunset from just outside Kastro, sitting on the rocks and the bartender came out with two bellinis because "for sunset, you need a cocktail".

        For my rock and roll nights, we head to Katarinas.
