Well you should be used to it by now! That is… Tuesday being Wednesday! Today I bring you MYKONOS. Little Venice in Mykonos to be exact! And in 3 colour variations. So this was my first time to Mykonos, and just like it’s namesake, ‘Little Venice’ had me at ‘Hello’!
Pardon the scratchy marks [top left corner]. These are scanned copies of my original photo taken in 1993. This poor little pic has been moved from house to house, photo frame to photo frame [you get the idea]. Hence scratchy itchy bits!!! But scratchy and all… I still love it!!
Image #2 is the original colour!!!
Images #1 & #3 are just a few variations to keep your visit interesting.

Which variation do YOU prefer ?
Well I have to say Mykonos is a dream. A fantasy that traps you within it's grasp. Never ending winding cobbled paths that seem to change each day you venture out. Turn left and you might find a huddle of cute shops vending their wares. Turn right and suddenly you come to a full stop with nothing but sea ahead of you. It takes days to remember which little cafe marks the turn back to your hotel. But that is part of the adventure!
I was suppose to stay 3 days and then move on to Santorini, but I couldn't bring myself to leave. 10 days later I flew back to London before heading off to Hawaii and then home. I was so disappointed that I missed Santorini ... I went back 3 years later!
I do hope you enjoyed a taste of Mykonos. There are more IF IT'S TUESDAY posts [here] and maybe next week I will bring you Santorini [if I can wait till then!]
NB I fixed my boo boo [don't think anyone noticed!]
