Island hopping in Greece

Our flight to Greece left at 6:30am which was perfect timing for us to squeeze in a Journey concert in San Diego before spending the night in Anaheim and leaving for LAX airport at 4:30am. Grateful to Lauren for being willing to play chauffeur.


Architecture on Mykonos is a feast for the eyes–sugar cube houses, blue windows and doors and a turquoise harbor. The island is home to the iconic windmills, first built by the Venetians in the 16th century to mill wheat. There are 16 windmills still standing but none are in operation. Our plan was to spend 2 days on the island but we ended up with a bonus day due to a hurricane creating extremely high winds and choppy seas.

View of the port from our hotel high above the city. It was about a 10 minute walk downhill to the water. Of course, you have to go uphill after having all the fun in the city.

This is the Greece I dreamed of…sugar-cube homes with that electric blue.

Paraportiani Orthodox Church–services are no longer held here. One of the most photgraphed buildings on the island.
