Mykonos - Greece

We visited Mykonos on a half day visit. I had not booked any ship tours because we decided to go ashore on our own.

We went ashore and took a shuttle bus to the main part of town.

Mykonos is a very famous Greek Island. It is made of granite and all the homes are painted white with blue or red shutters. This is what you typically see in paintings and postcards of Greece, very different to Athens and the mainland.

This place is truly unique, with tiny streets and walking areas, it is a place where progress seems to have missed. No typically evident things like satellite dishes or other modern things, whilst I am sure they have them, they have been very good at hiding these from tourists so as not to spoil the impression of this island.

What a lovely place.
