The next stop on our tour of the Greek Isles was Mykonos. The party island. After spending a few serene days on Santorini, it took a little while to get into the groove of the island. But once we did we found all kinds of things to fall in love with.We arrived at our hotel and immediately set out to get lost in town. Literally. The streets are a complicated maze that were designed to confuse pirates (and tourists alike).After a little shopping and a few wrong turns, it was time to explore the rest of the island. We calmed our nerves and took the keys to our new ride.
The island had plenty of beaches to explore. Some were secluded and others were jam packed with fellow sun-worshipers.
After a long day of exploring, we stopped here to try the infamous lobster pasta. And it was everything I dreamed it would be.
We followed our dinner with after dinner drinks and a seaside view.
Next on the itinerary was a quick stop in Athens before flying home.
We checked into our hotel, had a delicious breakfast, and headed out to find our walking tour. First stop, the Temple of Zeus.
And on to the changing of the guards.
It was finally time for the Acropolis! Let’s just say, a few other people had the same idea.
Once we made it to the top…
The views and the Parthenon were incredible.
We finished our tour with a swing through the museum and then it was off to the Plaka for dinner and a little shopping.
We had a romantic dinner for two.
With the slopes of the Acropolis as our view.
