Mykonos, Greece view

Here’s a Summer vacation idea: Mykonos, Greece

By | Travel Stories | No Comments
Mykonos is a greek island, part of the Cyclades group, a little white paradise in the Aegean Sea. All buildings are white with flat roofs, not higher than two floors, with colorful wooden shutters. Ornos beach We were in Mykonos in September and stayed in the Ornos area. The weather was perfect, not summer hot, but warm enough to lay on the beach and get sun tanned. The temperature wouldn't drop very much in the evening (as you would expect). It never got under 22 degrees (Celsius, of course). The beach is awesome, with comfortable sunbeds and thatched umbrellas. We've visited a couple...

If you ask me what I prefer, the mountain or the sea I will, without hesitation, say the sea. I love it! I love the beach, the sand, the water and its smell, everything. During our stay in Florida, we have visited a few out of its hundreds sand beaches. Sarasota, FL – Siesta Key Beach It is located on the south-western coast of Florida. What I think is the most interesting thing about this beach is its white sand. It is that kind of white-grey you don’t see very often. This sand is very soft, like a powder. It…
