It’s no surprise that going out to celebrate New Year’s Eve can be expensive. Clothes, food, event tickets, alcoholic beverages and of course the champagne for toasting at midnight. But a night out on the town is achievable. Even on a budget. Continue reading “New Year’s Eve on a shoestring”
The narrow twists and turns of Mykonos’ streets were designed in a way to confuse the pirates who roamed the high seas of the Mediterranean centuries ago. Continue reading “Pirates of Mykonos”
This week is a trip down memory lane to last summer in Mykonos. Not only was the weather perfect, but I visited some of the best beaches with the clearest blue waters. While we have some great beaches in Australia, it is a different world in Greece that should be on everyone’s travel list.

Well two out of the three were not bad. Mother Nature had decided that she would send strong winds as well. However, it does make for a great photo this month as the waves crash up against the sea wall of Little Venice providing a new perspective to the famous windmills of Mykonos. Watch you step!
For a natural and unspoiled beach head south of Adelaide to Port Willunga. Golden white, soft sand that meets cool, blue sea lapping gently against the shore. A stretch of beach somewhat hidden away from the crowds is popular with families in summer. However, the beach is not the only drawcard. Perched on top of the hill is the Star of Greece restaurant, its name from the grain ship that tragically ran aground 200 metres off the coast. Continue reading “Where Beauty and Tragedy Meet”
