Mykonos

Mykonos

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!
IMG_1740First off, I think I found my favorite little street
in the world. ^^ It’s right up there with this one.

“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! ^^

IMG_1766We 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 :)

Haha I could not take him seriously in this!

IMG_1768Of all the amazing and fancy meals we’ve had in Greece,
the ones like this have seriously been our favorites. 

IMG_1772Don’t forget about gelato to finish off a good meal. ^^
We ordered the Kinder Bueno flavor- yum!!

haha! But it might be a bit strange to dress her in back in California :)

dinner and enjoy the views. We loved our time in town!

a little bit easier to say goodbye to this gorgeous island.

Onto Naxos!
