Anyways, keep moving those eyes for my take on Wanderlust Wednesday: Europe.
So far in my #Europe2014 adventures (see what I just did there?), we've covered how excited I am to go and how excited I am to eat gelato.
Yep, that's it.
So I figured that it was time for another dive into my future European adventures. Since Italy got the spotlight last time, it's Greece's turn. But even more specifically, Greek islands. And even more specifically than that, Mykonos, Crete, and Santorini.
After exploring Athens for a
To give each of those islands the credit that they deserve, I'll split them up into three separate posts. First comes Mykonos.
Doing my homework on TripAdvisor, I learned that Matoyianni Street, Paraportiani Church, and Little Venice (without forgetting the windmills!) are places that I should definitely stop at.
Fun Fact about Allison #1: I am a total sucker for the products of local artists. That would probably explain why I spent so much time in La Villita in San Antonio.
Different post, different day.
Anyways, I've read that Matoyianni street is filled equally with designer brands that I could shop by sitting on my couch in pajamas and local artisan goods. Is this true? I have also heard that some of the more quaint shops are on the outskirts of this famous street. If that's the case, you'll know where to find me!
Next comes the
Ice Castle Paraportiani Church. (Give me a break, you have to admit that this in some little, tiny way reminds you of an Ice Castle. C'mon, I know I'm not the only one out there . . .) Even though this is a part of Little Venice, it's cool enough to have its own category. Haha, Ice Castle, cool. It was funny to me. . .
Moving on, the history behind this place intrigues me enough to cause me to long for a trip there to see it with my own two eyes. And snap a pic with my own camera.
Fun Fact about Allison #2: I'm a little obsessed with anything Italian. Just a little.
So, if anything, Little Venice will be a pick-me-up if I'm feeling a little blue about having to leave Italy.
But, I think it will be so much more than that between the gorgeous (and historic!) scenery and, of course, the cute cafés.
So now it's time for you to answer a few questions!
What should I see/skip in Mykonos?
Any food recommendations?
Do you hear that? It's the sound of the Aegean Sea is calling my name. Only 332 days until I come for it! (But who's counting?)
Note: None of these gorgeous pics are mine. If they belong to you, let me know and I would be happy to give you credit!
