Mykonos Greece…eat, seek, ride, repeat!

🌈 The last island in our Big Fat Greek Island Escape trilogy just HAD to be Mykonos and I don’t think it’s right to visit this Aegean archipelago and not include a trip around this iconic island haven! MB (Monsieur Bleu) and I were gradually making our way back to Athens and then eventually to France and Mykonos was one of the closest to the mainland. With its much photographed windmills, painted stone pathways and lapping waters of Little Venice, we were definitely in for a joyous three day/four night treat!

We took the 50 minute ferry ride over to Mykonos from Paros on yet another windy and drizzly day, each of us silently praying that the weather improved and that this last island fling would leave us with enviable chocolate-brown tans for our return to chilly French soil.

I had visited Mykonos twice before, once in the height of summer with another crazy Australian/ Hungarian girlfriend back in 1998 when I was a broke and irrepressible 26yr old, and then again when I was 35 and much more calm and responsible! This was to be my third time and MB’s first and the quick trip was lovely and full of coupledom fun from day one…

Arriving into the Port of Mykonos alongside a group of dazed and confused looking weary travellers, we were faced with the dilemma of how to make our way to Mykonos Town as it appeared that road taxis were few and far between and boarding a little water taxi bus (Venice it truly was) was the cheapest, fastest and most reliable option!

Plowing our way through the choppy water for the ten minute journey, we were very excited to be there and I was reminiscing the heck out of it, pointing and exclaiming the entire way and bossily ordering MB to “look at the windmills and the Venetian style setting!” as we approached our destination. Poor guy, I did this for the entire time and he never once told me to put a sock in it!
