Athens and Mykonos

Oh Mykonos. How you stole my heart. What an Island! Truly beautiful. And our hotel...what a way to finish our holiday

With beautiful, warm weather, it was the ideal place to relax and enjoy Greece's hospitality.

The pool was beautiful.

At night, romantic as well.

The Mykonos Blanc hotel. White, of course. It seemed that everything was white and clean

Staff were wonderful, always willing to help with a smile.

Our room...delightful. This was the balcony. Perfect for a coffee.

Or, wave to Taki as he lazed in the pool.

It seemed that every pair of sunglasses was mirrored. Who was I to argue?

Our balcony, one of many all white balconies.

The interior of our room. Behind that mirror hid the television.

Spacious and comfortable.

Easy to spend a lot of time out here.

The famous windmills of Mykonos. A beautiful setting for dinner (with hundreds of tourists staring down)

"What fish would you like sir? Caught fresh this morning. Or perhaps Octopus from the BBQ?"

Mykonos Bay was beautiful with what seemed like hundreds of restaurants and this single little church.

31.jpg

Beautiful winding paths, paved and narrow went past some of the best shops I'd seen.

We ate in one restaurant that had particularly friendly waiters. It wasn't until we got our drink that we realised just how happy and gay they were.

This is Taki standing at the top of the hill at what was called 'Little Venice'. So called because of the beautiful buildings hanging over the water.

The windmills again. Once seen, never forgotten.

Little Venice. a bit closer

Time for a champagne and wind down. We had to say goodbye to beautiful Mykonos.

And right on time, Mykonos presented us with a fabulous farewell sunset.

We flew back to London and then home with Qantas. A beautiful view over the Alps.
