Mykonos, The Famous Greek Island

Colin Fraser from GNN wrote a great piece on Mykonos this week that we now share with you.  His article gives readers great insight into the wonders of Mykonos Island in Greece.  Below are a few excerpts from his recent Mykonos Island Story.

Grilled calamari and salad washed down with a bottle (or two, or three) of crisp wine is served as the sun sets into a beckoning ocean. Windmills dot cliff tops peppered with white-washed homes as enormous ferries shuttle between islands and the mainland, docking their craft on impossibly small wharves. The islands are a stunningly visual space, and visitors take home a very particular memory of Mykonos.

With our dollar buying more Euros than ever before, and Europe’s tourist throng now reduced to a manageable hoard, Greece really is the word and Mykonos the word that you heard.  To Read more about the Greek Island of Mykonos by Colin Fraser go Here
