Mythology (Delos) and Partying (Mykonos Beaches) in a Day!

Much more than just a shopping town, Mykonos also offers something for history junkies, such as myself. A short boat ride away lies the island of Delos; famous for being the birthplace of the twin gods, Apollo and Artemis, and for being one of the most important archaeological sites in all of Greece.

Of course, no trip to Mykonos would be complete without seeing some of its world-famous party beaches, revered the world over by clubholics.

After our stop in fantastic Santorini, we made our way to the equally awesome island of Mykonos for the wedding of Monicca’s childhood friend. Legend has it that this island is the site of Zeus’ battle against his father, Cronus, and the Titans.

Today, Mykonos is known as one of Europe’s clubbing and nightlife capitals(along with Ibiza), and also has the distinction of being THE ultimate gay destination in Europe.



* Taking the Catamaran (a really fast sea vessel) to Mykonos from the port of Santorini took around 3 hours, which I happily took to do some leisure reading.
