Mykonos - The Cute & ColourfuI Island

Common view of the colorful Mykonos alleys...

The whole Mykonos island was so colourful! I luv the contrasts! The vibrant colour of the timber railings, doors, windows with their signature white walls and their trademark patterns on their pathways.

"We couldn't stop taking pictures, could we?"
asked the next door French lady over her balcony. Another happy traveller!

"Oh yes! I a took thousand pictures everyday! Every corner is so picturesque!" I replied.


I love the way Mykonians maximize the usage of space and their showcase windows. Anyway, let's go for a walk around the alleys!

Notice the smart patterns on their pathway?

Almost all of their main alleys are lined with quaint little shops...


As if having small little dainty shops weren't cute enough, these Mykonos entrepreneurs were also very clever and creative in arranging their displays...

It's very interesting to note that Mykonians were quite good at handiwork... Combining clever use of modern, colorful trimmings and conventional knick-knacks, how can one not fall for such handy and unique gifts?

Mykonos is a considerably barren land with very little vegetation... but the bland tone of its barren land is often offset by the vibrant and vivid colours of its people and their lives...
