Santorini is the picturesque scene that one thinks of when they think of Greece. It’s got the beautiful cliffside homes and gorgeous blue waters. We took a bus ride from the harbor to the town. It would seem to me that this would be a difficult place to get around. Its definitely not wheelchair accessible.
Its got cobble stones, and paver stone that makes for a very bumpy ride. And steps randomly all over because the town is built into the hillside and its very uneven. Nevertheless we still got Aidan around. Though as we anticipated much of this for most of Europe, I had bought a soft backpack carrier to transport Aidan around. Kevin would backpack him and I carried the stroller. This allowed us to put Aidan down in the stroller when we got to flat even land. Santorini was incredibly gorgeous and even more beautiful depicted in the movies. I would love to go back there one day and spend more time, but it definitely seems more of an adult getaway kind of place.
It was cloudy, cold and rainy. The port was small so our cruiseship had to dock further out and we had to take a tender boat to get to the port. Later in the afternoon it stopped raining and we got off the cruiseship and walked around Mykonos. Because it was rather chilly and still spotty rain, Aidan stayed on the ship with Monica. Luckily he did because it was really not very wheelchair accessible strolling around Mykonos. It was gravely and had large paver stones and would have been a very bumpy stroll, and also random stairs here and there. All the better because there wasn’t really much to see there for us anyway, just shops and boutiques and cafes. I was amazed at all the small cars driving thru the narrowly tight alleys and roads with just inches to spare from scraping the walls. Apparently, Mykonos is known more for its nightlife.
