Mykonos was without a doubt one of the most beautiful places I have ever traveled to. The small island is part of the Cyclades and is inhabited by less then 1,000 people.

We were lucky to travel here during the tourist off-season. The town was quiet as shopkeepers prepared for the crowds by repainting the labyrinth of whitewashed streets and brightly colored buildings. Legend has it that the winding alleyways of the town were built to confuse invading pirates so they wouldn’t be able to find their way into the heart of the town. It was thrilling getting lost in the maze.
