Mykonos and Ios

sunny 28 °C

The most frustrating part of typing Ios is that it tries to autocorrect to IOS.....just a little rant about something quite trivial.

Well, after an exciting evening in Mykonos we had a full day to explore the island and town on our own. Some chose the sun and sand at the hotel while others opted for the public bus ride into town. The town itself looks different during the day. Most of the buildings and even the sidewalks have all been repainted that Cycladic white in preparation for the busy tourist season.

While we were walking we came upon one of the 800 churches or chapels on the island. Yes, 800, most of which are family run and maintained, and quite small. There was to be a Greek Orthodox baptism in the chapel and the event planner set up the party favours and treats in the quake. So very authentic!

Not much else to report so I will leave you with some visuals of the time spent on the island.

We took the ferry from Mykonos travelling by Fast Ferry with short stops in Naxos and Parios. A late afternoon transfer and we were at a lovely property on a beautiful beach.

Time for a beach barbecue by the pool. Some of our students looked fabulous in thheir new Greek outfits. The evening was capped off with a beautiful sunset. We hope you enjoy.

Everything is just so pretty - I especially like the blue and white painted buildings. Nice sunset as well.
