Mykonos - The Photo Diary
Pretty much exactly one month ago, I left for the fairytale island Mykonos. And I came back home to London with one more place on my list of favourite destinations. It's not particularly about the landscape itself, or the houses, or the beaches, not even the food. It's an overall happiness that fills you on that small greek island.
I spend a wonderful, greek-salad filled week with my aunt on the paradise island. Sunbathed for the first time in probably three years, went into the sea, multiple times (I usually hate swimming) and just relaxed. Beside that, I managed to finish my dissertation while being there, ultimately the island even inspired the colour I got it printed in: Olive Green.
Below you will find endless images I took on the island, as well as three restaurant recommendations. Lots of Love, Eleonore
So good, we went twice. Not only they have one of the most famous seating areas for a nice Gram, no, they actually had the best food we had on the island, plus, the most lovely service. We were lucky to both times sit on one of the little outside tables, watching the sun set over the harbour of Mykonos town.
Because of them I seriously want one of those Missoni Pillows for my bedroom and because of them, I still fancy truffle lemon pasta. Very much recommended!
Scorpios is one of those places where you just have to go. Their set up, interior, is no doubt one of the most beautiful things ever. I would happily move in there any second, or at least get the contract of their interior designer.
The vibe is relaxed-hippie-party, every Sunday the throw a huge event and basically the whole island is waiting in a question to get in. It's fascinating and such a unique world on it's own.
Spilia might have been my favourite. It's carved into the side of a cliff, has several levels, and in front of it there is one of the most incredible beaches ever.
We spend two days at the beach, however, only on one we managed to get a space at the Restaurant. Normal waiting times are around an hour, even with a reservation. And the food is all you imagine from a greek island: fresh, easy, delicious. There are families, groups of friends, and some of the best music on the whole island.
