Holidays in Mykonos – part 1

Happy Saturday!

Hope you are all in a relax mode. Thank you for your patience, whilst I was sorting out my work, finally I’m here and ready to share with you the stunning views that I soaked in during my holidays in Mykonos.

I took over 500 pictures! Although you will probably find that when you look at some of your holiday snaps they aren’t as great as when you took a shot. So I will spare you the pain sifting through several hundreds of them. However as I find everything so visually appealing, I can’t promise the post won’t be long. I decided to split it into several parts though, so you don’t get bored with an endless scrolling 🙂

It’s a very grey day outside, so I’m particularly happy re-living these colourful memories. And without further ado … here it goes.

We caught a relatively early flight on a chilly morning and landed midday in the sunny and hot Mykonos. Our hotel was about 20 min drive from the town itself, but we could not be happier with it upon arrival.

Firstly we were greeted with a refreshing glass of lemonade and a breathtaking view 🙂

By the way, the sea was genuinely as turquoise as you see in the image.

After sorting out the formalities we were escorted to our own little villa. The view from our terrace, were we would spend afternoons sipping cocktails and coffees, was absolutely incredible!

By the way that coffee above – TO DIE FOR. I don’t think I’ve ever had a coffee as delicious as that, it was frappe if you are wondering 🙂

Having breakfast each morning with this view … couldn’t get any better.

Just like everything else, the food was exquisite too. I was eating in paradise every day…

Ok enough about food.

The hotel was on a rather steep hill, and since my bf’s walk is still affected by the knee injury, our aim was to soak up the sun and relax, hence we didn’t do a lot of walking. Also as it’s the end of the season, most of the hotels and restaurants around were all closed. You can see little white buildings on the other side from us, they weren’t too far, but again, a lot of steep hill walking up and down, so we had to pass on this activity in order not to put too much strain on the injured leg. Although he managed to break his toe into the stone on the beach! But that didn’t spoil our stay too much, so all was good 😀

The pool area was most fabulous and I particularly enjoyed sipping a glass of wine and having lunch there. By the way, it all looks very empty, but the hotel was fully booked. I didn’t want other people in my shots and being a ninja photographer as I am, I think I have succeeded.

Waking up to this view each morning – was incredible. It’s about 8.30am when I shot this video:

Everything in and around the hotel was delightful:

And in addition to all the beautiful sites, the icing on the cake was a stunning hammock area. Palm trees, sea view, flowers and soft lounge music – I WAS IN PARADISE.

I thoroughly enjoyed putting this post together, if you managed to get to the end of it – then watch out for part 2 tomorrow, when I’ll be sharing the beautiful views from Mykonos town.

Have a lovely day ahead!
