Ancient Thira, Santorini

Screen Shot 2015-02-27 at 4.26.47 pm

My first solo vacation, drove this car to top of Ancient Thira. Hit a huge stone, survived with minor scratches. Had to ask random Americans for help to go to the nearest petrol station to call the car company to tow the car. Sat on a stranger’s bike, toured around Santorini for free to car repair shop. My phone was spoilt so I had to borrow shop owner’s phone to call back Citibank Singapore to activate my credit card for overseas usage. Paid more than 1k euro for the car damage. I don’t know how I managed to do it but I thank God that I am still alive. I had so much guts lol
