The first Greek island we visited was Mykonos!
We were so pleasantly surprised by it. We had heard it was the
glamorous “party island,” but since we were there just before high
season I feel like we got our own little personal taste of it. We expected
packed streets and tourists galore, but instead we had the town practically to
ourselves and ended up loving it so much! In the high season the cruise day-
trippers can make the island reach 15,000 visitors per day (!!!) but we pretty
much just saw a handful of other people in Mykonos town (also known as Hora).
We stayed just a short ten minute drive away right by Agios Stefanos Beach at
the prettiest Rocabella Hotel which I’ll share more of soon, but here is our day
exploring the whitewashed maze of the darling, quiet version of Mykonos town!
First off, I think I found my favorite little street
in the world. ^^ It’s right up there with this one.
We had heard about Petros, the pink pelican of Mykonos. He is the
“town mascot” and we were told by a local to find him! We walked around
the beaches searching to no avail, then later stumbled upon him with his
head poked into a kitchen café waiting for some scraps :) Too funny! ^^
The color of that water! ^^
Okay just one more on this street ^^
We had the BEST best lunch of chicken gyros for 2€ each, with a
Greek salad on the side (I just didn’t eat the feta due to baby :)
PS Chase was sitting in the sun and borrowed my hat for his second gyro ^^
Haha I could not take him seriously in this!
Of all the amazing and fancy meals we’ve had in Greece,
the ones like this have seriously been our favorites.
Don’t forget about gelato to finish off a good meal. ^^
We ordered the Kinder Bueno flavor- yum!!
Charm galore on those empty streets ^^
I was sooo tempted to get this little Greek goddess dress for our baby girl,
haha! But it might be a bit strange to dress her in back in California :)
^^ Also got tempted by this one, hehe!
We stopped at the classic Mykonos windmills overlooking the beach ^^
Before the sunset we headed back to our hotel to have a light
dinner and enjoy the views. We loved our time in town!
Hotel pool view ^^
There were some clouds the morning that we left, making it
a little bit easier to say goodbye to this gorgeous island.
