MY FIRST TIME IN GREECE
MYKONOS PHOTO DIARY
Last month, I went back to the Aegean Sea, as I travelled to Greece for the first time. I went more precisely to Mykonos and Athens along with my sister. We flew there with Easyjet and stayed a total of nine days.
We first got to Mykonos, as it was our primary destination, and then after three days, we took the boat to Athens, where we stayed another three days and went back to Mykonos for the rest of our vacation. We were able to explore Mykonos and taste the local cuisine, which we loved. But we weren’t so lucky with Athens as we weren’t able to visit. One thing I did like in Athens, was the price for food, which is ULTRA CHEAP (we managed to get a 6 euros dinner for 2).

MYKONOS TIPS #1 – TRANSPORTATION
For our first days in Mykonos I rented a quad, which is really the best thing you can do to move around the Island freely.

Also, when we the reason why we couldn’t visit Athens, was because my sister got majorly sick on the boat. Once we set foot in Athens, we got to the hotel and ended up going to the clinic and spending the night there. That trip SHOOK her whole body. All of it resulting in us staying at the hotel for the entire three days, because she couldn’t walk without.
MYKONOS TIPS #2 – MOTION SICKNESS
[bctt tweet=”#traveltips If you have motion sickness, get prepared in advance.” username=”turningpoint_sg”]
If you have motion sickness, maybe not as strong as her, then you need to get on top of that prepare before the trip. You can get anti-vomiting pills and travel sickness gum from the pharmacy.
Another thing I like to have with me, is a tiny bottle of mint/peppermint/rosemary (yes motion sickness is in our blood). When I start feeling weird, I just take it out, open it, and start breathe in and out the scent coming from the container.
MYKONOS TIPS #3 – RESTAURANTS
This tip can probably be applied to the future places you are going to visit, but…
[bctt tweet=”#traveltips Eat where the locals eat.” username=”turningpoint_sg”]
I did that for the restaurants during our stay. And it was perfect. We were 5-10 min quad drive from every Greek local restaurant we wanted to eat at, and the price was half of what we would have paid in the city centre where all the tourists hanged out. Talking about restaurant, I have a few address of local restaurants in Mykonos, they will be posted here on Turning Point in the coming weeks.

Even though we weren’t able to make the best of this trip, it was nice. The weather there was awesome, as warm as Bodrum which is also on the Aegean Sea, but with a lot more wind. The city center was super cute, with the famous windmills of Mykonos, with little Venice and its a wide choice bars and restaurants overlooking the Sea. I would definitely recommend you to visit Mykonos and also I will put together another article about to tell you about how much it costs to go on holidays in Greece.
