We arrived in Chios and we stayed in a tower near the harbour called Chios rooms. we stayed there for 1 night and Matthew ( my brother) thought our dad had gone but he had just gone on a walk. Then we drove to a medieval fortress Which is still there called Mesta. We booked a apartment there.
In the town square there are some cats and they have been very nice to us. We also saw a grasshopper it was so big it was a mutant monster bug almost and a cat caught it. On the way to Mesta we got to swim in a beach but it had volcanic black rocks and they’re pure black.
So the real latest is we are staying in a fortress ,and they have a hobbit Hole like bilbos, a thing called mastic which is more valuable than silver mastic is a Resin it has healing properties, and that’s it.

Ikaria is great. Beachs were good all beachs here we held heavy rocks and we sank underwater and then we jumped up again it was fun. We saw a lot of villages and taverns but best of all we saw cats! We are staying at a house that is a family business and they let you stay there because its almost like a small hotel. We went to the church’s and we got walk to the monastery and I found a secret room and inside there were the monks bones. We also got to go to the beach and a few other places. It’s a great place it was also the place where the very first wine was made.
I woke at 4:00 in the morning or really early; dad woke as well. So we got dressed before sunrise and went to the observatory of Athens. I Saw a big dog on the way and it was chasing me but it’s owner called it back. I Remembered to not touch the poisonous plant this time and got to the top of the hill. From there we could see the acropolis and its building. Dad and me waited till the sunrise and swoosh pow! The beams of the sun and landscape lit up and the beams where shining through the acropolis ,It was an amazing sight! Then a few hours later we went on a ferry ride and there was a island and it was a really good swim place for me and my brother. We had a few mouthfuls of salt water through but the blue Mediterranean sea is a great place to swim. Then we went to a restaurant and we had a nice lunch there. After that we caught a ferry home to our flat in Athens.
The day before…
We all got up and went to the museum and the acropolis we had a better look at the acropolis then the day before, and the museum was great. It had very interesting things and we went to an exhibition.
P.S I will try to send these posts every 1-2 days and the next place we are going to may not have Internet
This is my first full day in Greece and its really good the things that are cool about this are really being here. Just got out and I’m going to the observatory so we went, our map had a park near the observatory so we crossed the road and saw a slide and a playground I had a play on it and we went into a mini forest but not a bonsai Forrest. There was someone living in there. Then a hill with marble stairs and it was easy for me to get up. at the top we saw the observatory. We could see the acropolis. We had a quick look at the acropolis and found 3 or more dogs 7 or more cats and a tortoise on the street. Then we went home.
On the first Tuesday in the holidays I went to Greece. First we went to the airport in Melbourne it is a busy place. We were there for around 2 or 3 hours waiting in lines and queues. The staff were checking our bags and our passports and finally we went to the waiting room for the flight to Doha in the Middle East. Then we boarded the plane and took off with all our stuff to Doha. Unfortunately it was the most boring flight ever because my entertainment device in front of me was broken. 9 hours later…We got off the plane and went to the waiting room in Doha for our flight to Athens, then 7 hours later we got to Athens picked up our luggage and mum went to call the person whose apartment we are staying in. We got on a bus to Athens and then in to a taxi because the biggest strike in Greece had happened earlier and there was tear gas in the air and it was hard to breath. Then finally we got to our flat .
