I’ve always dreamed of traveling to Greece, visiting the islands, seeing their beauty first-hand. I can’t say I was disappointed when we arrived in Mykonos. The sea in Mykonos is an indescribable colour. It’s somewhere between turquoise and royal blue. It’s both dark and so clear you can see all the way to the bottom. The sun hits it’s landscape of white-washed houses making them seems like they glow. I could describe it all day and never fully paint the picture of it’s beauty.
As we wandered through the twisty-turny streets and alleys that make up this little island, we saw shops and locals. We saw chapels as old as time, fishermen bringing in the day’s catch, restaurants bustling with people, and a beach that went on forever. I could have sat on the rocks and watched the sea for hours.
Then, in the distance, I saw the windmills. The FAMOUS Mykonos windmills. Let me tell you, they’re as fantastic in person as they are in pictures. They really do look like something out of a fairy tale.
I could, and did wander around Mykonos all day. It was everything I dreamt it would be. I cannot wait to return and stay on this beautiful island. If you’re thinking of visiting, you won’t be disappointed!
