My mom recently traveled to Greece and given she is a great writer, I asked her to share her 24 hours in Mykonos!
I spent 24 hours in Mykonos. We arose in the wee hours of the morning and took a ferry from Athens. And were at sea for over 4 hours. We probably should have flown. If you take the Blue Starr Ferry, be sure you purchase reserved seating. It’s the difference between business class airline seating and sitting at the food court in a mall. We ate, slept, and stared out at the Aegean Sea – from which being a product of the California school system, I did not know was part of the Mediterranean Sea.
When we arrived in Mykonos we just got happy. It looks exactly the way you think it does. Everything is white and blue and bright. I mean bright. Shades are not optional. You need them to protect your eyes. I thought LA was bright. But Mykonos is BRIGHT. We went straight to our hotel to drop off our things and shower. We stayed at the Hotel Carbonaki, a lovely little boutique hotel in the middle of town, but off a quiet side street. The owners were kind and helpful. They gave us tips and recommendations for our visit. So we were off to see this beautiful gem of an island. BF wanted a snack and I wanted coffee, so we walked into Yogurt Berry. It is set up like Yogurtland and branded like Pinkberry. I had a cafe Americana with the yummiest milk made into a cream on top. read more
