Another tour one can do from Mykonos is to an uninhabited island called Delos half an hour sail away. Delos is the birthplace of Goddess Athena's twins - the two most important and ancient Greek gods -Apollo (the sun god) and Artemis (the moon goddess).On reaching the island you can tour the ruins of the entire city - the ancient homes, guest quarters, public places, markets and temples- all very well planned. Even more amazing is their water harvesting system which would work even in the present day and age! There is also a museum which can be visited to see the exhibits from all the historical periods represented on the island. The excavations are still in progress and it is a UNESCO heritage site .
I was very excited about our journey to Mykonos that begun from Athens the next morning. Our mode of transport was a ferry via sea route. We waited for some time before our ferry arrived. To my surprise it was gigantic. By ferry, we usually visualize a large motor boat but here this was comparable to a ship.This certainly was going to be one of the most adventurous journey of my life. We were lucky to get a comfortable spot near a large window in the ship. The outside sea was right here just beneath us with its striking blue water on which the rays of the sun were spread like diamonds.
