Getting to Mykonos was our most difficult day on the water. We had to motor due north directly into the wind and huge swells. This had one of the girls puking her brains out and most of the others others just hanging on to their breakfast. I didn't think a 50 foot boat could come slamming down so hard on the water after jumping each wave.
The other highlight of Mykonos is the traditional way of life that somehow co-exists right along side the bars and restaurants. The locals literally live right down the street from clubs that thump out out the music until four AM each night. It would be enough to drive anyone mad in less than a couple hours but they tolerate thousands of tourists walking past their front door daily. Mykonos Town is also the best village to witness the maze like layout that was designed to confuse raiding pirates. It makes for some pretty cool photos especially knowing these are real homes for real families. Really liked it here and as long as I am not drinking Ouzo and $13 dollar beers, life is good.
