Mykonos.

A few photos from the first stop of our amazing 4 day cruise around the Greek Islands.

I always knew how beautiful the Greek Islands were supposed to be and always had the dream to visit them one day.
Finally, last week, our time came to see some of the most beautiful places we have ever been to.

Mykonos. Our first stop of the cruise and one of our favourites.

We got there late afternoon and even though we would be having dinner on the ship later that night, we headed straight to try some of the local cuisine.
A big part of travelling for me, especially to new places, is trying the local food. It was a good way to immerse ourselves in the culture given the little time we had.

We stopped off at a little outdoor cafe/restaurant, ordered our hummus and pita, chicken souvlaki and baklava and watched travellers from all over the world pass us by, each with a camera swinging on their necks. Who would not want to capture every moment of a place so beautiful?

I kid you not when I say, this little roadside cafe served the BEST hummus, souvlaki and baklava I have ever tasted!!! Incredible! My mouth is actually watering at the thought of it.

Feeling full and extremely satisfied, we walked around the small cobbled streets, lined with white buildings and blue doors. Each little turn revealed new and exciting hidden treasures. Shops full of beautiful art work, jewellery, clothes, souvenirs and pottery lined the streets.

We were already wishing we had brought more than just hand luggage.
