TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Elena Mykonos
This hotel was like a fairytale. The room here that i stayed in was located on the second floor with a balcony overlooking a nearby basketball court & enchanting neighborhood. The staff was fast & friendly and the internet access in the lobby was greatly appreciated. I highly recommend a stay here but, be sure to wander out to experience the beauty that this location provides *<3* There is a special place in my heart for this hotel and my dreamlike vacation here :0)

On the ship until 2.30 when we left by tender for the short service to Mykonos, one of Greece's most popular tourist islands. Here we wandered for an hour with Cindy & Mike before grabbing a well deserved beer in a cafe overlooking the famous windmills, formerly used to grind the island’s grain.

... 1971 on it might be a good idea until the lady in the shop tells me that the t-shirts start at 30 euros. Holy **** - with the exchange rate that makes a shirt about $50. I really can't pay that much for a fluoro shirt. So I go home empty-handed, but not really that upset.
The landscape on this side of the island is very strange - almost like a lunar scene. Its dry and there are rocks everywhere, only changed slightly by the odd white house, and occasional oleander ...
... so we gave up and moved on. I will be a few days late in uploading the blog as we will be at sea for a couple of days then on land at Athens. So I will have some catching up to do in the Greek capital. I’m not buying anymore ship internet; it’s too expensive and way to unreliable and slow.
