Fleeing Central Europe for Mykonos

The winter came to Vienna, and we fled.  We boarded a plane early on a cold morning with what appeared to be flurries hovering in the sky and flew straight for Greece, where the temp doubled, and we traded clouds for sun.  All around, it felt like the right thing to do.

We landed in tiny Mykonos - a small fishing island with one of the biggest megayacht docks in the Med.  It is easy to picture Aristotle Onassis docking here years ago and bragging about his whale penis bar stools to anyone who would listen.  With the big ships in the harbor, it would be easy to assume that Mykonos is an expensive place, but it is actually very inexpensive.  We rented an incredible place for around $60 per night and our most expensive meal was about $50 at a pretty nice restaurant.  We routinely ate for under 7 euros for both of us.

Mykonos has one of the world's most vibrant vacation gay scenes, which is readily apparent, and many party beaches with all sorts of weirdness.  It is a fun place with great beaches and wild night life.  It is an easy life to just rent an ATV and hop from beach to beach all day.

I will be uploading pictures from Mykonos for the next few days. 


  1. Date Magnification – Common errors created by hublot replica uk add the cyclops being much smaller and not arranged properly, a omega replica uk font date is another feature to fool a buyer. With the case of genuine watches, all of the genuine ones feature the cyclops that magnifies the date by 2. 5x, the only exemption being the cartier replica uk. Triplock The queen's Close – The three Rolex models, that is the Sea-Dweller, Submariner and Daytona feature the "Triplock crown". While a reproduction does not have a close, an actual Rolex uses the additional close by the plastic o-ring on the turning hublot replica uk. This is worth a mention as many original Rolex parts and accessories can also be replaced by omega replica uk, and so in the cases of pre-owned Rolexes this should be kept in mind.
