During the night we could not sleep very well â€“ as we expected â€“ but in the end it was not too bad. We slept till 05:45, got woken up by the disco noise and slept till 08:00. We start to make our pack ready to go to Delos. Hat on and a lot of water with us, because there is not wind at all today and itâ€™s predicted to get hot today. By 09:00 weâ€™re at the boat â€śMargaritaâ€ť: a small boat with maximum 10 passengers on it. It only takes 20 minutes to get to Delos. Yippee. We pay 5 Euro to enter the site and then Timo leads the way with a map in his hand through the monuments, temples and square. The most important things are: arena, theatre, the lions, the house of the dolphins and of the masks, the holy street and as last thing the museum. We donâ€™t have to stroll, cause in the end we just have enough time to see it all. We see a lot of geckoâ€™s, lizards and spiders. Delos is very nice, what an opposite from Mikonos. The later it is, the busier it gets here. Weâ€™re glad we came with the first boat. By now there are a couple of 100 people walking on this small island, so time for us to leave. We take the boat back at 12:15 and weâ€™re back in Mikonos at 14:00. We buy our tickets for Flying Cat 4 to Paros and eat a kebab on the way back. Then we pack the last things and pay the bill: 45 Euro for only 1 night, thatâ€™s a lot in comparison to other islands, but yeah, we knew it up front. We check out at 14:00 and go to the harbor. We wait in the special equipped waiting room. Eef withdraws money and uses the cash immediately to buy some ice cream. Out of the Flying Cat a lot of people join the island of Mikonos and it takes a while.
