Get on the donkey!

The donkeys in Santorini, especially in Fira and Oia are not just tourist attractions. They also earn a living!

For many who came to Santorini on a boat cruise, which means they first dock at the bottom of the cliffs, they have 3 options to get to the town above:

1) Walk—always the best option of course
2) Cable car
3) Donkey ride

The donkey ride is of course for everyone who wants to experience it, not just for the visitors coming from the boat cruise, but I don’t think I would be brave enough to sit on its back as the animal slowly nimble down (or up) the stairs while I stare with fright at the steep cliffs down below.

It is not for me so I will just take pictures.
