After our whirlwind tour of Athens, we jumped on an early ferry to Mykonos for a few days of relaxing on the beach. We stayed in our first Airbnb of the trip and were pleasantly surprised to find it actually looked like the photos from the listing (and saved us a ton of money over a hotel).
We dropped our bags and rented an ATV from our host. He was real apprehensive about allowing me to rent my own so Adam and I had to share, which was obviously not my first preference even though it ended up working out in the end (and joke’s on you, host-sir, I drove the shiz out of those island roads).
Going to the islands in May allowed us to beat peak season, which was great for us as honeymooners. All the restaurants and shops were open but we didn’t have to fight the crowds of tourists for tables or rentals. We stayed in Agios Stefanos, and while it was lovely, we really loved Mykonos Town – it was exactly like you’d expect a Greek town to be: colorful and quaint and filled with narrow, winding streets that led to all sorts of shops and storefronts overlooking the water.
At this point on our honeymoon we were still able to consume booze without wanting to vom, so I was double-fisting pina coladas, deep in my happy place with my cute, new husband.
