After Paros, we woke up early and boarded a two hour ferry to Mykonos, our final destination!
The locals informed us that Athens is all about the history, Santorini has the views, Paros has the best beaches, and Mykonos is all about the parties. Mykonos is described as a mix between Las Vegas and Ibiza and it is the most expensive island in Greece. Mykonos epitomizes wealth, glitz, and glamour. The island is known for endless sunshine and all-night parties. It is a popular destination for celebrities, spring breakers, and the LGBTQ community and it’s not uncommon to see people walking around in fancy dresses and heels!
While expensive, Mykonos is not lacking in beauty and charm. While strolling through Little Venice and Mykonos Town, there are windmills and intricate labyrinth-like streets, which were designed to disorient intruders and early Venetian pirates. The windmills are incredibly gorgeous and the houses are a lovely shade of white.
On Days 8 and 9, we soaked up some Mykonos sun at the Paradise Beach Club. We attended a Toga Party, saw fireworks, and explored Mykonos town. We also bought evil eyes to ward off potential danger!
On our final day, we took a 3 hour ferry back to Athens! In Athens, we saw a traditional Greek dancing show, attended a farewell dinner, and received bracelets from our tour guide. She encouraged us to travel and experience the world around us. At 2:15am, we woke up and boarded our flights to Charles de Gaulle Aiport.
