About Me

I am a 45 year husband and dad, currently adjusting to life back in the United States after living in Italy for a little over two years. I love spending time with my family, cycling, model railroading, mosaics and watching TV and movies.

Flying to Santorini

Today we flew to the island of Santorini, in Greece.  We flew on Aegean Airlines and really liked them.  Our first flight took us to Athens, where we had a 4 hour layover.  As we exited the plane we were given long white candles for Easter.  Brandon received a chocolate bunny.  With 4 hours, we had plenty of time to wander the shops and eat a late lunch.  

Our flight from Athens to Santorini took only 45 minutes.  We landed, picked up our luggage and caught a taxi to our hotel, Finikia's Place, near Oia.  It was late in the day, almost sunset when we arrived, so we settled in and had dinner at the hotel.  Brandon has pasta with meatballs - go figure!  I had chicken souvlaki with potatoes.  Katrina had swordfish.  Everything was excellent.  

Brandon's alcove, as he called it.

Our room.  Everything is white, even the floor.

Our shower - no walls, just open to the bathroom.
