We finally had a late morning! We only woke at around 09h00 and then headed down for breakfast.
What a disappointment. The breakfast room was full, so we had to wait for close to 20 minutes to have breakfast. The most dangerous place to be is to stand between me and my food, so I was not amused. All the tables have four seats, which makes …
We had to wake up early today, having to be at the harbour by 09h00 for our excursion to Delos. Breakfast was great and I, again, had more yoghurt than any healthy person should have in one sitting. No regrets!
The hot weather, combined with our ill-advised morning runs, meant that we were running thin on clean clothes. So, on our way to …
Today was all about getting to Mykonos. We had a 12h00 ferry to catch, so there was not much time to do more exploring on Santorini. Instead, believe it or not, we went for another run! I'm not sure whether we thought we would have magically gotten fitter over the last 2 days, but the run certainly was not any easier this time round.
We arrived after our early morning start and jet boat ferry trip, our first impression was IMPRESSED!! Crystal clear water, not a cloud in the sky!! Our hotel transfer and check in plus room upgrade and a very helpful receptionist, made the overall first day one to remember!!
We explored Mykonos town centre including the windmills and …
... cash in around midnight, but I struggled through. And at the very least our hotel and time on the beach was amazing.
On another note, I would like to apologize for the lack of pictures and request everyone take a moment of silence to remember 'Casio Exilim 28mm Wide Optical' digital camera, who passed away in the line of duty during the Mykonos trip due to an unretractable lens error. You have been with me since I ...

The staff members are amazingly helpful and friendly - probably the hotel's greatest asset. The location is also perfect, being 2 minutes' walking distance from the main town's primary bus stop and close to the centre of the town.
A big negative was that the hotel doesn't have free wifi. You have to buy (expensive) vouchers, something which is unthinkable in 2013. On the one morning we also had to wait 15 or 20 minutes to have breakfast, because there were no tables available. While I appreciate that these things sometimes happen, we weren't the only ones waiting - there were at least 3 other parties waiting with us, which obviously indicates that they need to do something about it.
