Dreamy Mykonos!

I am playing a bit of catch up on all my travel stories and apologies are certainly in order for going MIA. Now, don’t you worry, the silence has (finally) been broken(lol). Things have been manic this side of the world, there were deadlines and a mild case of winter blues involved. And truth be told, my summer loving heart is absolutely yearning for some glorious sun and flicking through pictures of our trip to Mykonos brought back some amazing memories of the splendid time we had on the magnificent island!

On the other side of a bumpy aircraft ride and a hasty landing was the unassuming Mykonos! With winding roads, fabulous cuisine and the ever so warm and friendly people - Mykonos is truly –extraordinaire!

Be warned the island is much sought after by flamboyant A-listers and the cosmo-island is a celebrated party hub and a hearty favourite amongst the touristy lot. 

And for those on a shoe string travel budget, the best time to head to heart of Cyclades would be early September, when the island cools off from the scorching summer to a cooler, breezy mid 20’s on the celcius scale.

As for our explorations, we headed straight to little venice, the heart and soul of the island!

The little stretch is a hive of activities, with scurrying ferries and fishermen bringing fresh catch of the day, and scores of eclectic eateries, Little venice is all about making impressions! 

Notoriously known for being the breezy town, Mykonos, certainly lived up to its reputation;)  

We followed the tiny cobbled street and white washed houses covered in patches of bougainvillea in total a-maze-ment!  

The rickety blue stairs and the hand painted windows, in all shades of blues and an occasional cheeky red, needless to say, won my heart over!

And do look out for the one and only –Petros ,The Pelican, The friendly-bird-ambassador of Mykonos. 

He is selfie –friendly and will charm you into a caress of his feathery body, he certainly is a bundle of joy!

Niko’s taverna, is located right around the corner of the city hall, it involves a tiny uphill climb, but serves the best sea food ever! 

We devoured most of the menu like there was no tomorrow and their stuffed squid was nothing short of magic!

And then the expedition continued, in search of the infamous Windmills of Kato Mili, the iconic three windmills is certainly hard to miss! 

The mighty trio is located, south west of the island, between scenic Alefkadra and the quarter of Niohori and serves up some of the best views of the island!

The whiff of freshly baked baklava, was reason enough for a peep into the bakery and My Oh My- it was   filo haven on the other side!

 The freshly baked pie’s topped with beautifully caramelized candied citrus  piqued my fancy! But the   succulent baklava soaked in syrupy-sticky goodness and the utterly nutty walnuts was supremely gratifying!

Not jaded by the myriad steps and fueled by high octane sugar, we were off, chasing yet another magnificent sunset on the mystical isle of mykonos!

Until Next time,
