Patmos, Milos, and Athens
We haven't had much going on the past few days so we decided to save up and do it all at once now. Here goes!
One of the most exciting parts was meeting our twins, the Atha family. They became our friends but sadly they disembarked at Athens the Athas in Athens...
On Saturday we arrived in Patmos and the only things to see were the monasteries of St. John so mom and dad did that but Allison and I were feeling a little lazy so we decided to have some revelations of our own on the rocky beaches. We spent a couple hours wandering the winding streets and the island is so small it took about 20 min to get to the other side of it. The population of Patmos is around 2,200. It's even smaller than Boerne!
Here are some views from the island:
Next we were off to Milos which was just as thrilling as Patmos. There wasnt much to do so we wandered around for about 30 min then headed back to the boat for 'marina day' which would have been fun if we could have done some sailing or kayaking. Instead, they told us some shenanigans about 'undercurrents' and said we could only banana boat and ski. Oh well, maybe next week.
This is a replica of a sailboat used to go between islands before WWII.
Finally, today we were in Athens. We got off the boat and hopped on a tour bus (we looked like huuuge tourists) and got to drive around the city a little. We got of near the Acropolis and hiked up to the top.

Here's Allison enjoying her authentic Greek salad.
Tomorrow is Santorini and we are renting 4 wheelers to drive around and see the island. We'll be sure to update tomorrow with all the beautiful pictures!
