Mykonos - Greek Islands

A summer holiday is all about living in the moment, letting go and feeling relaxed in your own skin. Mykonos happens to be that place for me when in Europe. Most know it as a party scene, however I appreciate it for all its little pebble stone nooks and crannies. The little walk through only streets in town have pristine white walls, and locals highlight their area with a splash of red or blue doors, while some extend their decor love with the colorful potted plants. With pristine white walls and a background of the Agean sea, it’s impossible to take a bad photo here.

There are lots of little cafes to fit every budget and a favorite of mine are the mom & pop bakeries and frozen fruit joints. Having a romantic dinner, while having the sea at table height by the windmills is a must do.

I stayed in town, which is highly advised as you can always go exploring during the day…but at night, all the liveliness is in town. The Semeli Hotel was my home and it was within perfect distance to all the cafes and boutiques I would frequent.

I also never met a bad local, everyone was super friendly and always ready to give tips on what to see on the island.
