Santorini, Mykonos, and Corfu

Santorini is my favorite Greek Isle thus far.  It is picture perfect and has lots of fun shopping.  We took a bus up the cliff (donkey is the other choice) and headed for the town of Oia.  There is the most amazing Greek Orthodox Church here.  So beautiful inside!  Walking around the streets of Oia was like being inside a postcard.  Breathtaking!


Mykonos was not all I expected it to be.  We chose to walk around the town instead of heading to the party area.  It is pretty, but if I could only choose one place to visit in Greece, it would not be this island.  The windmills are pretty here and there are restaurants all along the water's edge.  Be careful walking though as you may get splashed!!


Corfu was lovely.  Very green.  We walked along the old city and got a "Frappe" which is the most amazing iced coffee I've ever had in my life!  We also hiked up the Old Fortress, a must do if you go.  The view from the top is amazing and you can even see Albania.
