The mother of Elon Musk, the eccentric billionaire owner of Twitter and Tesla, enjoyed visiting Santorini but evidently did not leave Greece after her professional duties and is now soaking up the views and joys of Hydra.
Hello Hydra, Greece. I spent a wonderful day exploring this beautiful island," Maye Musk wrote on Twitter before thanking CAA Speakers and Golden Yachts.
Days earlier she turned to Twitter again to show off her snaps from Santorini.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk quashed claims that his father Errol Musk used emeralds from an "under the table" mine to finance him and said he didn't have a happy childhood and grew up in lower middle income situation.
His mother Maye Musk replied, "When we moved to Toronto in 1989, we stayed in a one-bedroom apartment until I found a rent-controlled apartment."
The Twitter owner wrote on his platform: "I grew up in a lower, transitioning to upper, middle income situation, but did not have a happy childhood. Haven’t inherited anything ever from anyone, nor has anyone given me a large financial gift.
"My father created a small electrical/mechanical engineering company that was successful for 20 to 30 years, but it fell on hard times. He has been essentially bankrupt for about 25 years, requiring financial support from my brother and me.
"That said, he does deserve credit for teaching me the fundamentals of physics, engineering and construction, which is more valuable than money, but did not support me financially after high school in any meaningful way.
"Our condition of providing him financial support was that he not engage in bad behavior. Unfortunately, he nonetheless did. There are young children involved, so we continued to provide financial support for their well-being.
"Regarding the so-called 'emerald mine', there is no objective evidence whatsoever that this mine ever existed. He told me that he owned a share in a mine in Zambia, and I believed him for a while, but nobody has ever seen the mine, nor are there any records of its existence.
"If this mine was real, he would not require financial support from my brother and me."
