Our trip to Mykonos was a bit last minute, so after a whirlwind of booking flights and picking up a couple of pieces from my favourite Greek designers, Elena and Anastasia, we arrived late on Friday night and ventured into the town for a night of dancing on tables and bar hopping along the seafront. The next day we woke up early and headed down the hill once again to see what the town had to offer in daylight. You’ll be well familiar with the typical Greek whites and blues, but the reality is even prettier – tiny streets and alleyways paved in cool stone with those infamous whitewashed walls and blue window frames. Mykonos is the windiest place I have ever been to (I was windswept from start to finish!), so after passing the famous windmills which line the seafront, it was a relief to dip down into the village. We explored the local shops, passed by the prettiest of churches and restaurants set up for the day ahead, before popping out into the old port, which is lined with tiny fishing boats. By mid morning the sun is high in the sky and the temperature rises rapidly so we snuck back into the warren of alleyways to make the most of the cooling shadows before heading back up the hill for a day at the beach.
