Pirates of Mykonos

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

Summer in 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. Imagine yourself reclining on a beach lounge, sipping your favourite icy cold drink and taking in the electric atmosphere around you. Continue reading

Photo of the Month: Stormy Skies

There is something about a dark, stormy sky that piques one’s curiosity.  It has an almost haunting, eerie feel to it.  That if we let the darkness win it may overcome us.  This photo was taken on a summer day late last year where the day had started out perfect. Continue reading

Photo of the Month: Stairs to Success

I loved the message on this staircase as soon as I saw it.  A perfect photo opportunity as I turned the corner on a narrow, winding cobble stoned street of Chora, Mykonos .  It is a subtle, yet inspiring message that rings true. Success comes in many forms and holds different meaning to each individual, whether it be personal, career or family.  There is no easy path to achieve your goals.  A lot of hard work, perseverance and a belief in your own abilities are critical to achieving your goals.

Photo of the Month: Waves of Mykonos

Mykonos, also known as the island of wind, and last summer was no exception.  It was my first trip to Greece and I was imagining perfect weather, golden beaches and warm waters. 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!

Where Beauty and Tragedy Meet

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.

My Private Island

A quiet street, a moped zips by, chatter from the two older ladies on the balcony above – this is the other side of Mykonos waking up for another day.  I sit in a cafe with a cappuccino, the coffee beans you can taste on the tip of your tongue, not burnt but roasted just right.  It is a perfect time to sit outside and people watch as the town slowly comes to life. Continue reading

Hawaiian Summer Sunset

I wanted to see a beautiful sunset.  After I had heard  so much about the amazing sunsets in Hawaii, I had to experience it for myself.  Tempted and curious to find out if Hawaii truly had the best sunset on the planet I was not disappointed.  It was true.  The sunsets in Hawaii are beautiful and the most magical I have seen so far on my travel journey.
