I have always admired Mykonos island, since the day I saw some of its most colorful pictures a few years back... Since then, I had put Mykonos on my list of places to do...
The island fares better than what those picture told... Infact, it's extremely gorgeous! Really, really, gorgeous! The same goes for its people, too!
Anyway, the view from the aircraft was so amazing! I could only see little white buildings perching on the cliffs... as if watching over the great, beautiful Aegean sea...
“Hi!!! Welcome to Mykonos!!! You are finally here!!!” Helena exclaimed, as she greets us at the airport. A couple of months ago, we had communicated quite frequently on the internet to make the arrangements. Helena runs her family's private hotel, and had offered to pick us up at the airport. Two other sweet American girls joined us in the shuttle to the hotel, too... The four of us were made extremely excited by the sceneries that dotted the 10-minute route...
"Beautiful, huh?" added Helena in her thick local accent... I totally agreed with her, busy snapping pictures almost every second of the breathtaking ride!
I was left speechless by the beauty of the island... Every single corner was so picturesque. My travel partner En Arip could only agree with me...
Lucky thing we had slightly over a week to take in the Mykonos scene, including its cycladic sister-islands of Delos & Santorini... We arrived without any pre-set, big plans. In fact, the only priority we had was to just rest and relax.
I'll write more about this island in future entries!
