Travel Blogs from Mykonos
Well we were up on the bus to the ferry to Samos and the change by tour operator and flight to Mykonos via Athens. Tight schedule and thankfully we made it. So turkey is over, did I love it? No, but neither did I hate it. The places we saw were amazing and without a doubt there are some great things to see, Troy from 3000BC, Ephesus, the mosques, …
... 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 ...
... was not all bad. The tyrants built a series of temples and structures in order to solidify their rule of the city and appease the masses, as well as the gods. The gate to the Temple of Apollo built by the tyrant Lacedaemonians of Naxos still stands on a hilltop in clear view of the harbor, framing the sunset quite beautifully.
Following a quick lunch back at the ranch, Nathan and I spent the rest of the day lazing on the beach and swimming in the warm ...
We lifted anchor at 7:30 and unfurled the sails and had a very pleasant but short lived sail out of Naousis Bay. As soon as we were out of the bay the wind turned to our nose and we were faced with another day of motoring. We checked in with BS at 8 am who were still at the marina and on their way to the bakery. We agreed to meet at Finikas. Mid-morning we decided to chance course and have another attempt at sailing but after about an hour ...
... a significantly different wind and sea state; waves of 2 meters and wind gusts up to 7 B.
As the conditions were rather unpleasant we decided to motor to the closest protected bay. We followed s/v Onset with Bill at the helm. He had sailed this waters before and he guided us around and between a few small rocks to a protected anchorage. We dropped anchor at 12:30 behind Wave Runner, who had left early ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Omiros Hotel Mykonos
It was the best vacations I've spent since a long time..It's really a unique place where people get friends in two days and spend 2 weeks together as if they had known each other for ages..The first impressions were very nice: a small hotel close to the center of Mykonos and with a great view to the sea and mykonos at night, it's just a five minutes walk and at night if you want to stay in the hotel, it's a real pleasure to admire the town with its lights..If it's your first time in mykonos and you have no idea where to go and what to do, the owner of the hotel - Yanis - who is a great guy and he knows very well the town, would reccomend you the best places to visit. We stayed in mykonos for ten days and became like a family..for me staying just in the hotel, having dinner together and talking was as great as parting in the best disco..The atmosphere of the hotel was great and it was certainly the people we crossed during our stay there more than the island itseld that made us love the vacations as much..
"Other countries may offer you discoveries in manners of lore and landscape: Greece offers you something harder - the discovery of yourself". Lawrence Durrell, "Prospero's Cell".
This was our first visit to Mykonos and may be our last. It all went wrong when we made the mistake of lodging at this 'hotel'
There are some things you want when you are on vacation.
Precious stones are rare hence expensive. Hotel Omiros is a tiny diamond, rare - yet not at all expensive. During my first stay there, last summer, I felt I had returned home. As a traveller, I'm not fussy. All I need is a quiet, clean, cosy room and this extra something in the atmosphere that makes all the difference. At Hotel Omiros I found all that and even more. Every time I walk down the steps that lead to the reception and open space bar area I feel a strong, calming energy flow. Friendly, warm, welcoming. There, I forget everything, I simply am.
A Magical Place
The Omiros is a fantastic, healing, magical place. The beautiful view cleanses your soul of worries and problems. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff, especially the owner is the friendliest and grooviest hotelier, barman, fisherman, philosopher and DJ you're ever likely to find, anywhere. Can't wait to go back.
Hi there I just wanted to share my experience of the Omiros hotel,Mykonos, Greece.
There is nothing better then feel yourself at home
At this place you can see how people can live in harmony, clients and staff became a big family. The locations of Omiro´s holtel have the perfect Sunset of Mykons in front of your eyes, umbeliveble.
Put the feelings that i have about that place are almost impossible to put in words, so get your a-- back there and enjoy for yourself.
You will not regret also about the day and nght life of mykonos, For me the best time is end of june and july. After get too busy.
Can't wait to be at Omiros again
If you've never had a chance to meet or talk to your soul, you would find him waiting for you right there in Omiros' gorgeous veranda. NO words can describe the beauty of the scene what your eyes reach, you got to show up there, then you'll see what i mean.
