Greece - De quelle planete es tu -4A few years ago, my best girlfriends from Uni and I went to Mykonos for Spring Break.

It was our last Spring Break all together before some of the girls moved across the oceans. For our last hurrah, we were off to the land of feta and mini churches. When I think about this trip I feel like it was yesterday. I miss these girls.

We were, and still are, adventurous souls, and wandered the pastures of the island and danced the night away in clubs that were close to empty. We wandered paths through the white Greek buildings and got lost between mindwills. Our season was slightly off, but having the island to ourselves made the trip even more exciting.

The Aegan (Mykonos side…) adventure began upon arrival from the Blue Star Ferries from Piraeus port to the lovely New Port of Mykonos Island. It was rainy as the back end of the ferry opened onto the shore, but regardless, the white house on the hills popped out from the mountainsides, and we were picked up and taken to our hotel, Arhontiko Pension (singing Mamma Mia under my breath…)

To start off, I highly suggest renting a car. It cost us $35/day and we drove all around the island to all the random beaches (SUPER PARADISE), the lighthouse on the northern tip facing Tinos, … starbucks  (should I be ashamed?) etc.. We had a lunch on the seaside at Ithaki in Ornos, the southern part of the island (about a 20 minute drive). The seafood was extraordinary with some Greek white wine and of course Ouzo to finish off the meal. My favorite thing is all of the little churches perked up on the hillsides next to every house. Another reason to get a car, to take pictures of ALL OF THEM.

On the seaside as you enter town (which is all pedestrian by the way) we popped in a restaurant called Kadéva which had divine snacks: Tzatziki, Fava Bean Salad, Spicy Cheese spread, Stuffed Grapeleaves, Mykonian Cheese toasts, Mykonian dried meat bruchetta,  etc… Try a glass of Greek Retsina!  Roaming round in town is divine, to say the least. It’s like little sets of Grecian dollhouses…..Pop in all the little luxury shops or tourist shops that all cater to the Greek  atmosphere. Don’t forget to wander and  try to find the Pelican by the seaside and also stop by  what the Mykonians call Little Venice to catch  a view of the Windmills on the water. Not far from the main water front is a treasure called Manderina, filled with Greek …everything (oils, vinigars, liquor, baklava, olives, honey…). Great for gifts and they even ship worldwide! Try the pistachio baklava, you will probably almost faint it’s so delicious.

Have a traditional Greek meal at Maereio (suggested by our lovely hosts at Arhontiko) When the sun goes down, hit up Jacuzzi and Toro Loco in Mykonos Town. Let’s just say during off season it’s a bit empty, but you’re bound to have an amazing time, especially meeting the locals or running into people you know from Uni (spring break!).

Above all Mykonos is a place of random restless relaxation. Roam the island, wander town, meet the locals, eat TONS of feta… the whole island is a playground. Then again, I can’t imagine it in high season, but for a relaxing spring break it did the trick.

My girls - De quelle planete es tuDiscovering a city can be wonderful by yourself, but when you’ve got a group of girls you discover it with, it makes the memories come back to life slightly more often… with a different dynamic. It added some girly goodness to the past half of a decade, and a little something sugar & spice.

With that said, to all things girly.

I just love all of these pieces.

So much cute...

Beautiful shoes to stroll in are always a plus.

Girlfriends are the best ones to drive through Champagne with.

Do you do collars?

Fruits & flowers.

February in Paris is cold….. AND FINALLY IT SNOWED.

How do you stay warm? These pictures are from my Sunday in this winter wonderland. The coffee keeps me going as the cold makes me a sleepy bear.

Last weekend I wandered the 19th with Annie… there will be a Strolling post on that shortly. I’ve revamped some travel posts like for Mykonos and Berlin, so check ’em out!
