Oct 21 - Mykonos

Mykonos is one of the most popular Greek Islands for tourists, mainly because of its picture perfect whitewashed villages, and gorgeous sandy beaches. There aren't a lot of "sights" to discover here, but after 8 busy ports in a row, you get the feeling that most passengers were glad of the opportunity to visit a place where there weren't lots of ruins or history to discover, and where the most strenuous activity was shopping or eating.

On our exploration of Mykonos Town, we did come across one of the huge pelicans that Mykonos is famous for. I don't know for sure how slim pelicans are meant to look, but this one seemed clinically obese, and it looked like it took him all the energy he had, just to open up one eye and look at us disdainfully.
