Play Mykonos

Play 1 Play 2 Play 3 Mykonos was certainly full of fun play times this trip. Frolicking on the beaches, mucking around with the Go-Pros (if you are thinking of getting one, do it! best purchase ever!), reducing each other to tears of laughter at dinner, jumping off jetties, moseying about Paradise Club at night, cruising about in our trusty Jimneys... This is the thing about travel. People can take it too seriously: they book an itinerary that sees them spending no more than a couple of nights in one place, the race around trying to see everything, chomp down food without knowing what it is (or insisting on ordering only what is familiar), before boarding a plane back home exhausted and unclear as to where they were...

Much of my life I have heard people rave about the food in Greece, however, the few times I found myself in a Greek restaurant in Australia I simply could not understand how this stodgy, deep fried, heavy and expensive food could possibly be what they are talking about.

Hmm...there are just a few of us Melbournians invading this speck of paradise to escape to blustery southern winter down under. I first came to Mykonos (and Greece for that matter) last year for 12 days of a five-week Eurotrip that also included Italy, Croatia and the Czech Republic. We came here mainly to hang out with Jase's globetrotting DJ brother whom we rarely get to see due to his aforementioned globetrotting. He, his girlfriend and DJ partner seem to end up on this island every year (I know...tough life being...
