It rained! The first wet day the locals had seen in months! And did it rain! Great excuse to linger longer at breakfast... another coffee?
Luckily we hadn’t any big plans for the day and we needed to pack and checkout from our accommodation ready for the next part of our adventure.
The heavy rain had eased by the time we headed out for a final round of the port, the beaches and more of the old town. Our last port of call was a patisserie highly recommended by our host, so with our remaining minutes, hunted down the store on the outskirts of the old town and purchased a small number of delicacies (which lost in translation and better for our health resulted in only one of each rather than the two of each we thought we had asked for)!
It was now time to collect our backpacks and catch the bus to the airport, the bus stop was only a 15min walk away, but we got drenched when the heavens opened up yet again! At the bus stop we were confronted by the typical Greek chaos, heightened by the novelty of rain, but all worked in our favour and were soon headed for the airport.
We had a scheduled 50min transit between flights in Athens and our outbound flight from Rhodes was delayed, thus making it an anxious dash back through a busier than normal security and down to the departure gate just in time to join the queue for our next flight bound for Santorini.
Santorini here we come!
