Another day, another holiday outfit post! On this day we went down to the old port at Fira, Santorini’s capital, via cable car down the side of the caldera… Not a bundle of fun for someone who’s terrified of heights. Thankfully I lived to tell the tale and we enjoyed a lovely afternoon down at the seafront watching wooden sailing ships, drinking local beer and eating fresh, stuffed calamari which was dee-licious.
(My husband thought it would be funny to film my reaction as we went back up in the cable car. I tried my absolute best not to look scared, but the the resulting looks of terror and nausea on my face are priceless.)
The weather during our first week was a little cloudy overall but still very hot when the sun came out, so a classic white tee and my favourite cropped coral pants with the suede cuffed sandals (last seen in Wednesday’s ‘boho chic’ post) made up the perfect comfy outfit for the day. I added a touch of colour to my hair with the red bandanna and took my mahoosive blue leather tote: Most days I needed a huge bag to carry the two DSLRs we use and the spare lenses, as well as the usual stuff a girl takes with her. Let’s just say both my calves and my shoulders got a good workout during our holiday from all the walking up and down steps and carrying heavy bags…!
The wooden sailing boat you can see in the next-to-last photo is like the one we went on a few days later. They usually do trips out to visit the volcano islands and the hot springs as well as trips out at sunset to watch the sun going down.
If all of that doesn’t make you want to go to Santorini, nothing will 😉
Tell me – do you have to brave cable cars yourself, or are they not a problem for you? Do you make yourself do things on holiday for the experience, even though it frightens you (like I do)?! Do tell me in the comments or tweet me @notlamb!
