Airport headaches, then relaxing...

sunny 31 °C
View Europaaaaaaaaa on valentinaa's travel map.


So i will have to admit, there is really not that much to say, we left Den Haag at about 9o'clock and arrived WAY to early for our 1:45 flight, so we just had breakfast and chilled before we were able to check in, after that we still had time to kill so i bought chocolate from that awesome chocolate store, this place just places blocks of chocolate in a pile and lets you pick how much you want.... y.u.m.
the flight was fine, i slept most of the way because of the early start, the problem with holland for me was that , coming from australia, i'm not use to going to sleep while its still daylight! so i would always go to bed after 1130, which was never a problem if your waking up late.... which we weren't because of the flight.

So, once we reached athens we had to wait about 2 hours for the flight to mykonos, i didn't really like athens as an airport, seemed disorganized and i had to show my boarding pass every 5 parsec's.

the plane to mykonos was TINIIII TINY, and the flight was SO quick, about 20 min! :O

so once we landed in mykonos (with a red sunset over the water! ) we went to line up to get the taxi, (ps: the airport is like the coffs harbor airport....well old school) there was a massive line and we thought we were going to have to wait ages, but then a taxi driver showed up , and was asking people something, we thought it was the name of a hotel, haha, - there was a group of girls...who looked like a combination oh barbie.....and an umpa lumpa.... orange as all hell! , and she walks up to the taxi driver an he shoos her away, then she pushes out her lips in a "pout" and goes " oh pleasssse" HAHAHAHAHA - i was laughing for about 5min of the taxi ride mostly because she still got rejected. fail.

once we got to the hotel, it was just basically just straight to bed, i was so tried from hauling my luggage everywhere and moving from one airport to another that i just pass out after a small dinner.

SOOO Mykonos....
so far i have only seen the view from my room...and from the pool deck...
B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. - its just amazing, words cannot explain, so i did take photos! - so today was gym, then relaxing in the sun... jumping in the pool, then sun....then reading in the sun...then sleeping in the sun.... a whole lot of sun... yes, i got a little burnt, so at around 1 i escaped inside and just hung out out of the sun , so as not to get TOO burnt, i'm very happy now i brought the aloe vera! :D

dinner was at a seafood restaurant , just lovely, had swordfish and a fantastic salad that had, lettuce, apple, orange, avocado, and sesame seeds nom nom nom nom nom , with a little white wine, and then 2 bailey's and milk after a walk on the beach.

i love how the beaches here have all the beach chairs and umbrellas...BUT australian beaches are still much much better, the water is just too flat! but it is relaxing :)

Today is the town center! going to get a new sim card and a SHITLOAD of sunscreen! - they have 50+ here!!!!

Until next time! :D
