Luxetips Travel! From Santorini to Kos Greece With MDFVOYAGE 2016: A Luxe Adventure
Life is beautiful! Enjoy it!
And speaking of how beautiful life truly is, I had the amazing opportunity to sail the Greek Isles once again with Mediterranean Delights Fitness Voyage. Last year I went on an eight day yacht cruise with MDFVoyage and we visited several Greek Isles and the gorgeous port city of Datca, Turkey. This year the voyage included an eight day voyage from the STUNNING Santorini to the bustling isle of Kos.
This trip truly delighted all the senses: the scenery was gorgeous, the food was delectable, the sound of the sea was calming, the smell of fresh flowers and herbs on the islands was the best aromatherapy and the Mediterranean Sea feels simply luxurious! This voyage is living the luxe life at its best!
Our first day of our journey started on the beautiful island of Santorini. I have always wanted to visit Santorni and Santorini is a popular tourist destination. Why? Because of this:
Santorini has black beaches and red beaches plus the most beautiful architecture you will ever see. The most popular area of Santorini is Oia. Oia has pristine white cave houses that are built into the mountains and super fab resorts with infinity pools. Of course the views from Oia are simply breathtaking.
We met the passengers and staff from the MDFVoyage at Ammoudi Fish Tavern. This restaurant is located in the harbor overlooking the blue green sea.
The MDFVoyage staff treated us to a delicious lunch of fresh fish, fresh greek salad and homemade bread. Yum!
After our lunch, we visited our gorgeous yacht to settle in and receive orientation and our itinerary for our 8 day voyage. We checked out our accommodations which included a large nicely decorated cabin and bathroom. We also toured the yacht and all of its amenities. The yacht has an upper sunning deck, den area, large dining table on the deck, comfy deck sofa that can fit an army of 15 people and front deck for fitness. It also includes a full kitchen, staff quarters and can accommodate up to 16 passengers. So Fab!
We then relaxed a bit before the staff took us back to the harbor to begin our 2 mile hike in Santorini.
Our hike taking in the gorgeous beauty of Santorini was amazing. We hiked to the town of Oia to see the most beautiful sunset ever. Check us out!
After watching the sunset, the MDFVoyage staff had a surprise for us. All guest were invited to take a donkey ride down the mountainside on Oia’s famed wide stone steps. In all there were 237 super steep stone steps to go down. The steps ended at the harbor where we would take our dingy to our yacht. Yikes! LOL!
Of course the donkey trek was optional, like all MDFVoyage activities and adventures, and I hesitated awhile before I agreed to do it. I was scared! And the donkey ride was one of the most terrifying things I have ever done. But there was no need to fear because the donkeys have been taking this trek down the Santorini mountainside for hundred of years and they did it with pizazz and ease. Once I was at the bottom, I was thanking God we made it alive, but it was the most thrilling thing I have ever done. I felt like I could do anything! Yeah me!
Our first day in Santorini was filled with beauty, amazing food and adventure. Afterwards we had dinner and crashed. We needed our rest because the next day was more adventurous and full of fun surprises.
Be sure to check back tomorrow to hear about the rest of my journey with MDFVoyage sailing the Greek Isles.
