Naxos, Greece, Day 8, September 17, 2015

We were up and packed and headed out to do some souvenir shopping.  We had lunch once again at Meze Meze.  I had to have grilled squid for one last time and shared one more Naxian Gruyere cheese saganaki with Jill. The taxi was picking us up to take us the airport at 3 so we headed home and we had a short nap. The airport was not only small but our check-in agent was the same guy who was working at the olive museum. He was helping a friend for just a day. We were travelling to Athens on a Bombardier prop Fokker, a Canadian plane. It took just 30 minutes in the air.  It was neat to see several ferries at one time chris crossing the Aegean to the various islands.

We were picked up at the airport by the owner of Peri’s Hotel, a short 15 minute ride from the airport and a 15 minute walk from the sea to where we went for dinner. Peri’s is a bargain at 85 Euros, which includes transfers to and from the airport and an early transfer as we were leaving to go to the airport at 6 am.
