Mykonos – surrounded by blue and white

We arrived to blue and white Mykonos in the afternoon after a long and delayed voyage- 2 hours on the plane( plus 2 hours before to check-in), 4 hours waiting in the port- the ferry was 1.5 hours delayed and then 2.5 hours ferry ride. Quite tired, a bit annoyed with so much time wasted and having the most expensive and terrible port breakfast possible, the holidays did not start the best but fortunately, once we got to the hotel, the charm of Mykonos started to settle in. After unpacking and relaxing near the pool, we hit the town just to realise that Greece is quite expensive. Meals are a bit more expensive than here in Malta but all sorts of beverages are at insane prices- doesn’t matter if alcoholic or not. Despite it, the town is really pretty with white and blue houses and narrow streets. The next day we chilled in town discovering the famous windmills and also the little Venice.

On our last day there , we booked a boat trip to the small neighbouring island of Delos where there were ancient Greek ruins. The boat trip was pleasant and then we were left for 4 hours to discover the island. And frankly, unfortunately there is not so much to discover. One would need a lot of imagination to see the bustling city from its remnants today.
Also what’s a bit upsetting, that most of the sculptures or wall paintings found there originally are not on the side but actually in the museum in Athens.

I’m the afternoon we hit the close by beach Agios Stefanos and relaxed there under the umbrellas. Water was just right temperature and it was a pleasant end to our Mykonian adventure. Unfortunately, due to really high prices of rental cars, we did not visit the whole island, which is a bit of a shame and just stayed on the walking/bus distance from our hotel.
On our forth day we got ready to go on the ferry to spend the rest of our holidays in Santorini.
