Anemos Apartments

I just wanted to tell you a little about my trip to Greece and one of the places I stayed. On Mykonos Island, I stayed at the cutest little apartment ever. Anemos Apartments is owned by this adorable Greek family and I had the pleasure of meeting the mother and her two daughters. Everyone was so nice there and helpful, with maps and suggestions of things to do while on Mykonos. The white washed walls and the cobalt blue doors were so fresh and summery, looked just how you would imagine an ideal Greek village to look. I couldn’t have found a better place to stay.

Anemos Apartments was a 5 minute walk from Ornos Beach, so I spent two mornings there. In the afternoon and evening, I went into Mykonos Town to explore the tiny streets, quaint shops, cute pelicans, traditional churches and the summer sun. The streets are so tiny, sometimes it’s even cramped for three people to walk side-by-side. The cobble stone is bumpy and almost all the buildings are white and a few stories tall. The fun of Mykonos Town is getting lost in narrow winding streets.
I enjoyed a nice lunch at Nikos Taverna of pasta with octopus. Octopus is a popular fair on the Greek islands. I walked around all afternoon and evening, photographed the windmills and the Church of Panagia Paraportiani (the most photographed church in Greece) and relaxed at the sun set beyond Little Venice. All in all, I had a great time on Mykonos!

Octopus was good! I did not actually hug the pelicans. But I did have some lady who seemed to be from Australia take my picture with two of them. They seemed pretty tame. If you go, you should try hugging them! Haha.
