It's Now Up to Five...

View Our wedding and honeymoon on jefranklin's travel map.

The last day in Santorini had arrived, and unfortunately it was a morning flight so we had to get straight to the airport. So after breakfast, we did a final check to make sure that we had packed everything, paid our bill and headed to the airport in the rental car. The flight we were on was shared with my now in-laws, and as it was a small 'plane, it was possible for my youngest sister-in-law to bug me during most of the flight. The 'plane wasn't pressurised, so she should be grateful that we were not sitting near the door! (Just kidding)

On take-off from Santorini, the 'plane looped round and flew directly over the apartments we stayed in. As we flew higher, the cloud layer closed over Santorini, drawing a curtain on our holiday there. Fortunately, we have hundreds of photograhs.

Our time in Athens wasn't particularly noteworthy, other than for two things:

  • Trying a Greek-style McDonalds (lamb burger with a yogurt dressing).
  • Almost appearing as an extra in Greek TV show. We accidentally almost walked on to the location set of some show that was being filmed :) Maybe it was just me, but the actors involved seemed to look like Ron Jeremy.

We eventually left Athens and ended up in Zurich, where had a really long wait (we are talking 8 hours here) and there was nothing to do. I wanted to browse the Internet at a cafe, but at 2 Euros for 30 seconds, forget it! Instead, we hung out at a bar and made sure that their beer supply was up to scratch. The bartender was able to pour a bottle of beer vertically into a glass, without spillage or frothing over, which I thought was pretty impressive.
By a few more beers, I decided that it really wasn't that impressive and now Zurich is on the list of airports where I have spilled drinks; Bangkok, London, Singapore and Sydney being the others.
