Happy Saturday everyone! Hope you’re having a great weekend so far!
:: A short photo journal ::
We stayed at an Airbnb (Sunday House) in the heart of Mykonos Town. We were literally on the main street and just steps away from all the restaurants, shops, and night life. Mykonos is very festive with the streets packed during the day and music radiating from the streets to sunrise. We rented an ATV and took our time exploring every part and corner of Mykonos.
We had a layover with only a few hours to see Athens. We hopped in a cab from the airport and headed straight to the Parthenon. It’s quite magnificent in person with so much history and beauty. If I may… just a small suggestion when you’re in Athens… go see the Parthenon very early in the morning to escape the crowds (it’s packed!) and to also escape the heat (it gets very hot by late morning!). We didn’t really have too much time to spend there, but I’d say give yourself an hour or two to really take in everything. The entrance fee is €20 and it’s about 35 mins by cab from the airport.
We love love Oia! We did Airbnb again (GeorgOia’s House) in Oia and loved it! The view was spectacular! Oia is very quiet, which we greatly appreciated, with rich blue waters and whitewashed cubicles as far as the eye can see. We spent most of our time just exploring the main areas of Oia and took one day to hike to a cliff driving area.
Best meal in Oia! Highly recommend it! Melitini was delicious with each dish bursting with flavors. It’s best to call in ahead of time and make reservations. This place gets full every night!
So good! I love the yogurt flavor (my go-to flavor =) and the fruit flavors!
Sunset in Oia. The colors, the view, a beautiful quiet moment. Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed this short photo journal from Greece!
