Journey: To ios / by joel lim

Journey: To ios

Our journey to ios started at port Piraeus in Athens. After boarding we quickly settled into one of the benches located on the deck, and so began our 9 hour journey to ios.

Feeling the blues

The boat ride came with a fantastic view and you could just stare endlessly into the ombre of blue and white. It definitely kept us entertained in between naps.  I was particularly amazed by how intense the blue was, and the contrast of white against it. I finally understood why those 2 colours are synonymous with Greece.

Are we there yet? 

We spent the next few hours just talking about everything and anything , sleeping and just staring at the sea. It got really boring after a while. When we finally arrived at ios, we were more than happy to get off the boat.

Despite the amazing view, 9 hour boat rides will never be an option again. ever.
