Life is a beach - My unforgettable trip to Mykonos

Mykonos - Little Venice harbor bw Mykonos is like Santorini's younger and hipper sibling. Whatever Mykonos lacks in sunset views it makes up for its beaches and the party atmosphere to lure the monied and the beautiful.

The trip to the island of Delos to get a dose of archeology and history was a bonus!

Pinoy in Greece - My unforgettable travels to Athens

Athens - Acropolis bwI had been told before that skip Athens or give it only a day when traveling to Greece.

Mijo and I were skeptical about this suggestion and we wanted to give Athens a chance. We were rewarded by our decision and the longer we stayed in the city the more we loved it.

Back in London - My unforgettable visits to the city, Stonehenge and Wimbledon

London - Parliament Building Thames bwLondon was the first city I visited in Europe. That was sixteen years ago. I went back to London, this time with Mijo.

They say love is better the second time around. I'd like to say my trip to London was like that. Mijo loved it too. Bonus points because I saw one of my good childhood friends after many years of not seeing each other.

Life is a beach - My unforgettable travels to Sibale Island

Sibale island - Boats bqI went there with my siblings to take care of family business. Instead of taking care of business, the trip ended up as a wonderful beach holiday and an amazing time reconnecting with family.
