The Greek Isles: Mykonos
I have to say that the party didn’t start until we arrived in Mykonos, the first of the three Greek islands that we would be stopping at on our tour.
Mykonos is the “party” island, and falls under the more expensive islands of Greece. But it was a great time regardless.
We had to wake up fairly early to catch the 7:30am ferry, but because it was so early, everyone was asleep for the first half of it. That made it seem much shorter than it actually was. And because we were so rested, we would hit the ground running when we arrived to Mykonos.
Upon arrival at our hotels, we saw that we were a stone throw’s away from the beach.
So without a doubt, that’s where we all spent our afternoon before a night out on the town.
Need I say more?
At this point, though, I was eager to eat Greek food – so that’s what we did. Can’t say no to gyros in Greece!
To end the night, we went to two nightclubs. I’m not too keen on extremely packed-dance floors, drink-dropping, and too much EDM (yes, there is such a thing) but it was something that has to be done in Greece.
Plus, it was one of ours’ birthdays! So, we had to celebrate.
Mykonos is crazy – but our tour group of American college students is much crazier!
The next day was a free morning/afternoon, so Diana and I ventured back to town to experience it in the daytime.
The afternoon/evening was meant to be spent at Paradise Beach – the ultimate beach party.
Let’s just say the place was insane. And if this is anything like Spring Break in Mexico, I’m not exactly sure what to think. It was a lot of fun though – something that you need to check out for yourself because pictures won’t do it justice.
