Mykonos, Greece was such a much needed vacation. I recently completed my final exams for Law School and the feeling is definitely inexplicable. I do not want to say I regret the chance to explore Europe because I am an avid believer of destiny so, I guess, right here and right now, was not destined but yeah..
Mykonos was breathtaking on every level. It was authentic and raw to the core. The little alleys, the white and blue buildings – just to name a few are what kept me excited to seek more. It was super peaceful and the people were so kind and welcoming.
I had done a little research on things to do in Mykonos before embarking on this journey and I realized that there was only so much you could do as a tourist. Nevertheless, I went there with an open mind. My friend, Jasmine and I spent three days in Mykonos and I feel like that was perfect and enough time to see everything. Any day extra would have been spent resting or chilling.
We were so excited to explore Mykonos Town. We were dropped off right at the beginning of town and we just wandered the entire day. It was exciting that every little corner of the alleys was filled with a different adventure. Every turning led to somewhere new and a completely different vibe. We had a couple photo opps because nothing screams Mykonos like the white and blue buildings. We found the famous Little Venice which I’d describe as the heart of town. It was beautiful to see and because it is at the seaside, it’s absolutely beautiful to watch the sunset from there.
We also visited the windmills which is one of the top tourist attractions of Mykonos and I am going to be candid – it was underwhelming. I was expecting something a little more than just the sight of the windmills for some reason.
Finally, did someone say Greek yoghurt? UM YES! The first authentic greek yoghurt we tried was from Trio Bambini which was literally ‘melt-in-your-mouth’ goodness! I thought Red Mango / Pinkberry was life until this right here. So so yummy!
We also had a taste of the most popular street food of Greece, a traditional Gyro from Jimmy’s Gyro. I did this for the culture because I mean, what’s your Greek experience without trying a gyro? So, there you have it, Day 1 in Greece done! 🙂
Thank you for visiting!
Love & Light,
