Farewell Sifnos – Back to Athens

We woke up early to finish packing.  Pension Morfeus has been a fabulous place to stay both location wise, hospitality wise and definitely has the best ever bathroom for a pension.  We give Pension Morfeus 5 Stars! Maria comes to say goodbye to us and she gives us a gift.  It is wrapped in tissue … Continue reading Farewell Sifnos – Back to Athens

Last Day on Sifnos

Today is our last full day on Sifnos.  There is still so much more to see but decide to catch the bus to Apollonia - all destinations depart from Apollonia.
