Back from the Holidays

All good things eventually come to an end! Although my summer holiday was much shorter than last year, I made time to forget all about work and personal worries and..recharge the batteries. I spent most of my holiday time in Mykonos, which is very unlike me as I hate the husltle and bustle of the island and I hate ..clubbing as well. Apart from its worldwide reputation of an island that never sleeps, Mykonos has also got its unique beauties. I stayed at a quiet hotel, near Ftelia - the best beach for windsurfing which is one of my favourite sports. Mykonos is also called the Island of the Winds and is ideal for the sport. After swimming and windsurfing, I had lunch at "Akri" - one of the best tavernas in the area of Ftelia at about 9 km from the Hora - the centre of Mykonos. The truth is, I only went to the centre once only to have dinner at Chez Maria but spent most of the evenings in my hotel room reading or listening to my favourite music. I went to bed early, before 11 pm and got up early to go swimming or windsurfing. Mykonos can be a very quiet place. It depends on what you are looking for. Now how about you? Did you have a nice holiday?

I am glad you had a relaxing holiday, Constantine mou. I always like to spend my summer holidays on the greek islands but this time we took the kids to the eurodisney in Paris! Well, we had trouble to take them away from there and I felt like a kid again! Back to work now! Kefalia mesa!

Hi Constantine mou and welcome back. I had a very short holiday of 4 days during the 15 august weekend but that was all. Last Easter I spent a weekend in Mykonos and it was nice - more quiet than in the summer.

Mykonos may be known worldwide as the island that never sleeps, yet it's a versatile island that caters for every taste. No need to go to Psarou or Paradise if all you want is a quiet holiday, away from the crowd. A few years ago, I had a great holiday in Mykonos which I spent on the beach of Agia Anna Parangas. It felt like heaven!
