Day 11- Cruise Day 1!

Mykonos, Mediterannean

sunny 28 °C

Today was the offical end of the tour, but we we were about to set sail to the Greek Islands. We left the hotel at a reasonable time, and got to the port to go through a short security check. We then goat our boarding passes, but I thought they were like credit cards! This is because it is the room key, boarding pass and when you buy something the money goes onto the card. The boat was huge and had shows every night (10pm ). There was also activities like origami on too.We did the safety check of the life-jackets, then explored the ship and had a buffet lunch. Later that day we stopped at the island of Mykonos in Greece. We had a walking tour. All the houses were white, but the shutters and doors were painted a different colour (mostly blues) to personalise their house. There was 421 churches on the island! This was because when a sailor would come back from sea, they would build a church and it would be called saint and the sailors name. They also have name days. Name-days are like birthdays, so they have one almost every 3 days.We then had a pre-dinner drink before we got back on the boat. I had a Pomegranate juice. We then went to dinner really late and came back for a game of cards of which I won! We have an early start tomorrow (5.30am) and we go to Kusadasi, Turkey and Patmos, Greece. My birthday is also in 2 days!!
