Goodbye Santorini, Day 31

Penultimate breakfast. Lets see what our mates can do with the toast. Ah, oh. One sided toast again. I ring the Minister responsible for the services sector of the Greek economy and run the scenario past him. He actually has never heard of toast and asks whether it is an industrial chemical. I explain its bread related and send him a youtube video of a toaster in action. He says he’ll get back to me. Nothing. Anyway, a cruisey vibe for our final day in Santorini. We talk with the older representative from our Melbourne office. All ok. Check the suitcases and check our finances. All good. We head up to concierge to book a taxi for tomorrow morning to the airport. Still a bit windy here at the moment. We catch the shuttle into Fira for our final walk around. First off its a visit to our little coffee spot. Throw in a bit of lunch. The girl who has served us each time, upon learning that it is caputnik for our trip, says we should come back next year for 3 months. I don’t even try to explain the impossibility of that scenario beyond tattslotto. We pick up a few more Santorini keepsakes. I opt for a Red Donkey T Shirt to go with my Red Donkey beers just purchased. Sue sorts out an interesting T Shirt for someone at our Melbourne office. The shopping scene has been a pleasant surprise. We bump into some donkeys at the top of the shopping centre. I snap Sue with one of the little guys. I give the donkey guy 5 euro for the privilege of setting up a photo opportunity. My decision. A feeling of guilt. I suspect its pretty tough for some of the people on the island. Back to the shuttle pick up point. This transport convenience been soooooo good. By bye to Bobbly the driver of the shuttle bus. Back at our room its time to pack up some bits and pieces. Oh no, my BBC mug has been broken. Damn it. What a special day that was in London. I try and order a replacement online. We order in our dinner. What a trip. Final blog entry. Some snaps below of our the different rooms that we had at each of our different stops. All very comfortable, some smaller than others.
