The excuse was a friend's birthday, but the whole point was to travel with my friends on a perfect carefree getaway to a casual yet exotic and picture perfect destination.
We arrived in Mykonos by ferry from Athens. We were stunned by the beautiful port and it was just a 10 min walk to our hotel. Mykonos like most of the Greek islands is hilly and the hotel Paradisson was on an incline. Walking up to the hotel with the baggage is not for the feeble hearted. Do wear comfortable footwear in Mykonos and generally in Greece.
