Visiting the Greek Island of Mykonos

  May 20, 2015   Mykonos is another Greek island which looks like a postcard. With a reputation for a lively nightlife and favorite among celebrities, Mykonos is truly beautiful. White houses with blue roofs and blue trim dot the landscape of this hilltop location. Blooming bougainvillea in brilliant colors add a pleasant burst of brilliance to this white and blue town on the Aegean Sea.

  
The old Paraportiani church is one of the most photographed buildings in Mykonos. Its stark whiteness is almost hypnotizing.

  

The ancient windmills on Mykonos captured my attention. Located in the Chora neighborhood they can be seen from a distance and are iconic symbols of Mykonos, even though they are no longer operational.

  1. Amorgos is my favourite. Mykonos is where they filmed ‘Shirley Valentine’.

  2. Andrew, not so much noticing it by observation, but I asked several of the locals and all of them said that business is down and people are not buying like they used to. The prices seemed very reasonable to me so I did add to the local economy by making several purchases
