After a Two Year Break in Travel We Return to Greece!

Itís been a long time since I participated on this board but with the return to travel I am giving it another go.

Bikerscott and I spent a lovely two weeks on Mykonos. We wouldnít normally spend so long on this island but it had direct flights from London and we wanted no hassle, no changing island stress, sun, food and relaxation. We got it all and more. We donít necessarily want to return to Mykonos but it did the trick for this trip!

happy to answer questions

happy travels all!

Did you rent a place or stay in a hotel? Your photos are taking me back to Greece! I can feel how relaxing it must have been. Thanks for sharing!

Did you spend those two years preserved in formaldehyde? Why do neither of you ever seem to age?

So happy to see you back on this forum, jamikins and bikerscott. Your time on Mykonos looks sublime - seriously envious!

It is great to be back - thank you everyone! We hope this is the beginning of the resumption of our travel again!

We have been travelling in England throughout the pandemic but it is just not the same as visiting other countries. We head to Le Marche in Italy for 2 weeks in August so will be sure to post then - maybe I can convince Bikerscott to write a trip report again!

Thanks you for the compliment about looking the same - after drowning my COVID sorrows in wine for the last 2 years my belt is definitely a bit snugger than it used to be but I am working on it!

We stayed in this hotel and it was excellent https://www.alkyonmykonos.gr/ - beautiful views, large comfy rooms, lovely staff. The only 'down' side was being on the top of the hill - you get the views, but you also get the hike up every day for added exercise!

We would definitely stay here again.

Looking forward to hearing about everyone's post-COVID adventures!
