View Europaaaaaaaaa on valentinaa's travel map.
so as you can probably tell, i have been on the Greek islands :P , my goodness, its just Be-E-AY UUUUUUtiful, its beyond what any photo could really tell you, the waters are clear and there is always a fresh breeze to keep you cool, but if you stay in the sun its just so warm , although it can burn if your not careful, you can tell the tourists from the locals, as the locals are all dark as hell, while the tourists are bright red! :P
Yesterday i went to the center of town, its just a dream, all the streets, are not really streets, its more like a maze of paved trails, its like a snail went in and just went nuts and designed the little town. Its easy to lose where the hell you are, playing marco polo would be so much fun, not fun though if you lose someone :S but i was on my own, so i was happy to get lost! , tried to get a sim card, but i forgot my passport, its not like holland where you can just get the sim card, no ID or anything, lame! also found a place to do my washing, which will be handy as at the moment i have a lot of dirty clothes, mostly from holland, peee-ewwww
the main port has two docks that you can walk out onto the ocean and admire the amazing view, mykonos town looks amazing with all the white, also you can see a few of the other islands. I went also to see the windmills that are here, i'm not sure if they still work or anything , but they are quite pretty, not to worry i took photos!
tried to take a panoramic photo as well , ill see if that will work out!
Other than that, i found this amazing store with things that were completely made from olive wood trees, i wanted to buy everything from that store! but most of it is too heavy to carry , and also i would probably lose it at the airport.
other than that, we then had a nice lunch by the beach, overlooking the water, all the restaurants here are on the beach, its fantastic, also all the beach chairs have waiters and you get drinks delivered to your beach chair/umbrella.
then was a nap by the pool, and then a late lunch, seafood basket, YUM, the seafood here is fantastic, also after every meal they bring you this shot of alcohol, which, im still not sure what it is, its different at every restaurant, but the one last night was my favorite, was sweet tasted almost like honey, like a soft honey and had lime and crushed ice to keep it cold, YUM!
other than that, the evening was spent looking at the view in the twilight and having a cocktail, too good!!!
Well today is beach day! and tomorrow is santorini!! - then i come home!!! YAY! :D
