Day 122:  We had to meet up at the pick up hostel at 5.30am so we could catch the ferry to our first point of call, Mykonos.  We met some of the other travellers we met last night as well as a lot of new ones, there was about 35 in all and we were all the same age so I thought that it was going to be a good group.  The ferry ride was about 5 and a half hours and at the start Murray gave us a rough run down on what was to happen on each island and the extra activities that we could do, all of them sounding pretty cool.  We got to our hostel and the accommodation was very basic (two beds in a tiny hut, that's it) but it was 30secs from the beach and we had the whole afternoon to do what ever so most people slept or went for a swim.

We all then met up to go for an orientation walk of the city where we met Petros the Pelican among other things and also had dinner and then we all went out on a pub crawl of the town.  It was a really good way to catch up with everybody a bit more and learn more about other people, but it was the start of the most drinking that we will do for our entire trip but also the most fun.  We got back to our hostel at around 3am and we went to bed but a few went to the beach clubs party and for 15 euro a drink I didn't think it would be worth it.

Day 123:  Today was meant to be an excursion to a Greek island full of ruins but the ferry doesn't run on Monday's so we ended up drinking on the beach all day and going swimming.  That night we got cheap drinks at the beach club and a few free watermelon cocktails, they also had a party on the other end of the beach where we continued drinking and dancing.  Me and Emma had an earlier night then the others and finished up at 12am.
