The Mykonos Blues

Temperatures hit the mid-thirties today, we lounged like sun-drunk lizards on our balcony throughout.

Sipping on San Pel and slipping ice-cubes into our bikinis in an effort to cool down.

But before the sun hit the mid-day sky we skipped into town for a bit of a wander, a coffee and a chance for me to show Valentina some of my favourite little white washed streets.

Of which there are many!

We trotted through the cobbled streets like a couple of eager mountain goats, keen to drink in all of the sights and sounds of the Greek islands.

I couldn’t have found a more suitable dress!

Forever trying to befriend the locals.

It’s well worth popping out to explore after breakfast if you ask me.

The crowds are still faffing at home and it’s so much cooler.

You end up with the place to yourself, which is pretty amazing in June!

I was particularly excited to take Val to Little Venice.

A row of bars and cafés with the waves lapping at their feet.

At sunset it’s packed, at night it’s popping, but in the mornings there’s nowhere better for a frozen cappuccino!

Coupled with those iconic views.

Should have been born Greek!

So happy to have this one by my side…

A hoot who makes my face ache from smiling whether we’re sipping cocktails, sucking on ice or just waking up with a coffee.

She’s as into culture as she is the beach, making her the perfect travel companion (and best friend!)

Having had our fill of those deep Mykonos blues, we trotted back up the hill to our Honeymoon Suite at Hotel Boheme.

I’m writing this post as the sun sets, frozen margarita in hand while V makes plans for us to go dancing.

Blissed out doesn’t quite cover it!
