What To See & Do in Mykonos

Grey, blue and white.. the three colors of Mykonos. Let’s take a closer look at the wonderful paradise that Mykonos is all about! This small island has more to offer than any major city in the world. In terms of quantity, maybe not. But Mykonos is all about unique sights of nature and architecture with a relaxation feel. I spent four days in Mykonos but I wish I could stay there for at least a week. Although touristy activities are limited in the island, Mykonos offers the perfect spot for an afternoon to read your favorite book while listening to the waves of the ocean and the birds singing nearby. Add some cocktails to that equation and boom! What’s not to love? Here’s a list of things you must see & do: 1) Get lost in Old Mykonos! 2) Watch the sunset from Little Venice 3) Take a picture in Mykonos' smallest street! See if you can fit through. (I did haha)  4) Spot "Petros", Mykonos' only pelican! Isn’t he adorable? Locals always make sure …

The Countdown Begins… Greece, here I come!

Originally, I was going to go by myself on a solo traveler adventure but at the very last minute my Mom decided to accompany me on this trip! Words are not enough to express how excited I am. The hotel accommodations and transportation are all set! Now here comes the tedious (yet exciting) section of planning a trip: What to eat, see & do? For the next ten days, I’ll dedicate all my free time to research! This requires a lot of patience but a good research always pays off! Here are some tips on how to start your own research:  Verify your sources! The better the source, the better the advice. I cannot tell you how many articles I’ve read around the web that are not quite right and give tourist the wrong advice. Sources like Lonely Planet or Conde Nast Traveler …
