The Donkey/Mule/Horse: "Santorini's Hardest Worker"
Santorini should be experience by "Donkey". The sense of the Donkey wanting to either walking off the cliff or run over walking humans is so funny. Yet, so freaking scary. During the ride my donkey was moving quite fast up the stairs, the reason being he wanted to get a corner and do the "#1". I was wondering want he was doing, until I heard the rush of water underneath me. Yup, he was certainly peeing. At least, he has a healthy and functioning bladder. Try to find a restaurant away from the tourists, there you will find better food to enjoy and savor.

Santorini from the other side
This was the view of the gorgeous Santorini from aboard our cruise ship at sunrise. We would shortly be taking our tender boats to the shore and walking up the long, winding donkey trail to more breathtaking views.
If you walk up the donkey trail rather than paying for the lift or donkey ride, be sure to look out for, not only donkey poo, but running donkeys as well. They walk nicely up the hill with passengers, but to get back down, they RUN and don't stop for anything!
Travel to Santorini in luxury, explore Santorini by donkey
Travel by donkey up to the edge of a dormant volcano that shaped this island so long ago, or get lost in the pathways between white-washed houses decorated with deep-blue shutters. Instead of public transportation, rent an ATV and make sure to find a good spot for the sunset. The little town of Oia is known for being in perfect position to catching a postcard-like snapshot.
