As most of you may know, we recently took a trip to Mykonos, Greece. This wasn’t our first trip; we have been visiting for over 20 years. Our first trip to this island was dusty and gritty but scenic. It was filled with party beaches and hectic traffic, but mainly it was super sleepy and behind the times…which of course made it fantastically charming. Over the years we have watched the transition as Mykonos became the St. Tropez of the Greek Isles. This year we were called to a Big Fat Greek Gay Wedding which included drag queens, drones and a wedding party all in white. This wedding extravaganza was officiated by my husband, as the grooms are our besties. The circus-like atmosphere, was very Mykonos and did not disappoint. We had a blast.
Over the years, we have stayed all over the island, but this time we rented a private villa about 30 minutes out of town. Since we know the Island so well, it really was the perfect getaway.
We dined at our favorite beach restaurant on Elia Beach. The Greek salad is to die for as is the Taramosalata (roe salad my favorite), along with crisp Rose wine; it makes for the perfect lunch at the beach. Of course we have to have the grilled squid as well. Needless to say we ate well.
One of the highlights was our photo safari. We photographed cows, beaches (Focos Beach) and fauna. The island is still full of hidden beaches, but they are getting harder and harder to find.
Mykonos is still a fantastic destination, even with the jet setters, helicopters and black SUVs moving in. The donkeys and cows still rule the landscape for now…behind the scenes celebration love Parties Personal Travel Uncategorized weddings : Tags: annette joseph, Behind the Scenes, friends, greece, islands, love, mykonos, mykonos greece, travel, weddings
