Unfortunately, although the travel agency said there would be a bus at 8am to the ferry we asked at the station, 'Not until 3:30pm'. Had to hire a taxi, met a fellow from S Africa and a couple from Sydney travelling/waiting for the ferry. Came on time and left with scarcely a pause, just enough for the few of us waiting to hop on. First stop a small island part of the caldera, Thirasia. Since the trip is eight hours but goes half the distance we travelled to get here (in 8 hours), I figure we're in for many of these stops. Ios was next stop, another very pretty island...then Sikinos...next Folegandros...Naxos...Paros...
Arrived a bit late but easy getting ferry tickets to Mikanos right at port and then met by Antony & Maria of
Pefkakia Park - Lux Rooms
who convinced us of the value in accommodations they offered us. Drove us up the hill (which actually was only 200 meters from the port - but UP). Nice folks, all the tea & cookies we want plus 3 bed room w/ bath.
Walked down to the port side and tried a Goody's salad (the McDs of Greece)...not bad but short on variety of veggies. Got Wifi here too so update possible. Nice place!
