Great macjake 2013-11-24 12:21

Hi Krzysztof
I need some education about these Greek Islands! :)
first of all, is Santorini on the Island of Fira?
and what is this Oia? and why do the tourists go there in the evening leaving this place vacant?
so many things i need to know :)

I'll be traveling to Greece in May 2014 :)

lovely shot once again my friend.
the textures and exposure are very attractive. Its great how the paint seems to be peeling away a bit on the dome.
another sweet shot

Good choice my friend-you wonīt regret it!Greece is beautiful.
Fira is a capital city of Santorini and in my opinion the best place to stay on the islang as the main bus station is in this town and from there you can easily get to every corner of the island(surprisingly the public communication is much better than on Malta).If you want I can give adress of my Hotel in Fira.Good location not direct on the Caldera,but along the main road,which means you donīt have to climb the countless steps.Believe me it can be really hard
By the way do you combine visiting Greece with any other country in the region?
Iīve also booked my first trip in 2014.Iīm flying to Dubai and Istanbul in March.

So you're off to Istanbul in March!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm going to Istanbul in May!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

nice to hear that you're off to Dubai too, lots of cool architecture there
you should come home with some cool photos

are you planning to meet up with Deniz?

I let him know today we're on our way in May, he hasn't gotten back to me just yet.

Istanbul seems to be a TE favorite right now, haha

My girlfriend and I are going for 1 month....spending time in Istanbul, Greece, and Venice.

yeah...please send me the name of the Hotel you stayed at
I'd like to see it.
how many days do you think we'll need to see the hills of Santorini?
really looking forward to it.

talk to you soon

Hi Craig,
no,I havenīt talked to Deniz about the meeting yet,but Iīll certainly do it in the next few days.Unfortunately Iīll spend only one day in Istabul(16 hours between the flights),so not really much time to see everything.Itīs more to get a first impression of it.Than 5 days in Dubai(a little bit sun after long and cold winter
So,about the Hotel in Fira-itīs Anemomilos Suites(itīs located in Fira,about 500meters from central bus station and the same distance to Caldera).The good point about it-if you contact the owner,he will pick you up from the airport/port and will bring you there on departure day

Youīve asked me how many days is enough for Santorini.Well,I spent there 6 days and it was too much just for sightseeing(I think 4 days would be perfect to see everything without haste).
