Exploring Mykonos, Part Two

Following on from part one

Our hotel was about a 10 minute taxi ride from the town. We headed down early morning so to avoid the crowds and explore the town in a slightly different light.

The air is surprisingly light and cool. The high walls and narrow, winding streets keep the sun from your back and the fresh sea air whistles through. If you follow the gentle slope downhill, you’ll find yourself at the waters edge of Little Venice. Cafes and bars dotted along the wall offer coffees and cocktails. In so many places like this you can often feel like an outsider, like a child lost in a supermarket while everyone looks on. But not here. The people mostly ignore you with a quiet disinterest. You’re left with a beautiful sense of anonymity, free to soak up the experience in your own little world.

We accidentally/on purpose found ourselves at Peppers, again.

My tips: Head down early morning or late afternoon. Avoid the hours between 12 and 3. The streets are full, the sun is at it’s hottest and there is nowhere to hide from it. If you are a bit of a shutterbug like myself early morning is the best time to get those snaps. Stay hydrated, it is very easy to get lost in this pretty little maze.

Mykonos Town is absolutely stunning and was the highlight of our trip.
