Since we are leaving Santorini today.The night before we received a call from the front desk asking what time we would like a wakeup call and what time do we want our Donkey to haul our luggage.
We had booked passage on the high speed Cat ferry to Athens today and our ferry left at 12 and we had Hotel reservations in Athens.
So we got up at 8 had breakfast and relaxed and then caught the 9:50 buss to Fera to transfer to another buss to the new port to board our ferry. We got to Fera and couldn't find a buss to the new port, so we went to ask around. All we got was that we had to go to the office we bought our tickets from. So off to find that office. At that office they said the ferry was canceled and we had to go to another office. There was a big line but after about an hour wait we got tickets on another ferry leaving the next morning. This ferry would take 8hrs instead of the 5hrs of the fast cat. They said the fast cats weren't sailing and this was the only ferry. So I got new ticket upgraded to first class and got a refund. We then found a hotel and decided to hang out in Fera for the day. We shopped and looked around then back to the hotel and bed since we were getting  up at 4am. Oh we had no idea what we were getting into the next day.
