Our first stop on our mini cruise of the Greek Isles was Mykonos, a honeymoon destination known for its whitewashed buildings and nightlife. Even though we cringed when we overheard passengers on our boat talking about where the Kardashians stayed during their family vacation, Mykonos Town quickly won us over with its winding alleyways and iconic windmills.

We spent our time in port mostly exploring those alleyways, finding pretty churches and doorways, and searching for gyros. The upscale shops were all closed upon our arrival and the nightlife had yet to begin. Despite the bad timing, Mykonos Town was still a lovely place to visit.

Destination: Mykonos | Greece | Europe
