    How to get from Athens to Santorini?

    Flying is waaaay easier. I get so seasick on the ferries so I wouldn't recommend it. Flights are pretty cheap anyways and you'll save so much time. That way, you'll be able to spend more time on the island instead of being stuck on a boat.

    What was Paris from the Trojan War like?

    Paris played a huge role in the Trojan war. Many people think that Helen was the big cause, which she was. But if there was no Paris, there would be no Helen, and then there would be no Trojan war. He was the one who she ran away with and caused the whole thing.

    What was your favorite day trip from Thessaloniki?

    I agree!! My favorite day trips from Thessaloniki have to be Kavala and Meteora. If you only have one day to spare, I highly recommend Meteora. It’s stunning but a bit tiring. Make sure you go on a cooler day, because walking up the steps to go to the top is exhausting.
