Many people ask meâ€¦why do you keep going back to Mykonos every yearâ€¦donâ€™t you want to explore other places?
Well my answer to that is yes and I willâ€¦.eventually, but for now my yearly trips to Mykonos curb my appetite for adventure and relaxation, therefore I am more than content to keep up regular appearances in the place I like to call my home away from home!
I canâ€™t describe what entices me back to the beautiful Island of Mykonos every year but I guess itâ€™s the same thing that temps you on your travels!
Having travelled to Mykonos twice in 2006, 2008, 2009 and of course another journey planned this year; I guess you would assume I have the Island down pat - I know the ins and outs, where to go, where to be seen, the best restaurants and know all the locals.
Well yes and no, every time I travel to the Island itâ€™s always with a different group of friends and not necessary the same time every year (although I do keep to the warmer months, that being May-September) I also find when I travel to Mykonos I have a different need to fulfil, I could be absolutely exhausted from a full on work year OR want to party it up non-stopâ€¦my aim now is to try and get a happy medium of both!!!
What I love the most about the island is it can satisfy every tourist, from any age group! I love reading blogs from the â€˜olderâ€™ aged (but young at heart) tourists who point out the island is not just for party goers or the young and hip.
I am amazed over the years how much the island has grown in popularity yet it keeps its perfect vistas of whitewashed walls, maintained beaches and tidy streets. I have even noticed a few new roads being built to assist the not so savvy vesper drivers like myself!
