The first stop during our island hopping was Mykonos. It was just the beginning of touristy season so the weather wasn’t super cooperative to a lot of beach activities, which is really what Mykonos is known for. Fortunately the weather was still conducive to laying out and reading (Game of Thrones!).
The island is probably recognized most for their windmills (pictured above!). These were used during the 19th century to harness wind energy. Mykonos was the first part of Europe to produce electricity. In fact, the work “Mykonos” can be broken down to, and I’m loosely translating here, Myk = Wind and Konos = Energy.
Actually, I made all of that up. I guess they were just used to mill wheat but I kind of thought I needed to spice things up a bit. Anyway, I uploaded more photos to flickr. They will be added to my ongoing series entitled, “Pictures Only My Mom and Sister Will Look At.”
