Mykonos SS16: What to wear on holiday!

Despite only having a small hand luggage allowance for my trip to Mykonos, I still managed to cram in a rather mammoth amount of outfits. I’m not sure what it is about holiday packing but I tend to prepare for the fact that I will probably be changing 4+ times per day, plus a bit extra. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone (well, I hope not). I do really need to refine my packing skills – because I did once arrive to a holiday destination (luckily only for a few days) with 6 t-shirts, 10 pairs of socks, 5 pairs…

Archipelagos Hotel, Mykonos

Sometimes, you can just tell you’re going to love a place the moment you walk in. The surroundings, the atmosphere, the decor, the staff – and a warm (or should I say refreshingly ice cold) welcome with two mojitos on a rose gold tray. It’s safe to say that where first impressions count, I was instantly in awe of our Mykonos accommodation from the very beginning – the stunning Archipelagos Hotel. Nestled at the bottom of a hill in the Kalo Livadi region, this beautiful place became our home for the duration of our trip – and I say home because the boutique aspect…

Tharroe of Mykonos

On our final night in Mykonos, we decided that we wanted to do something rather special. Instead of taking our usual trip down to the Old Port and using our fail-safe tactic of stumbling across a restaurant that looked up our street (after finally succumbing to the hunger), we booked a dinner reservation at the Tharroe of Mykonos hotel – renowned for its panoramic views of the Aegean Sea, Windmills and Town Centre. We’d heard on the grapevine that the sunset was absolutely incredible when viewed from their position, on the very top of a small hill, so we couldn’t…

St Nicolas Bay, Crete

I’ve been lucky enough to travel a lot this summer, exploring Italy (posts here), experimenting with some crazy Alpine sports in Austria (posts here) and partying in Mallorca with On The Beach (posts here). It’s been amazing and I’m struggling to adjust to being back home for a long period of time (and getting back into the swing of things Uni wise). However, if I had to pick one favourite trip, it would have to be my most recent adventure to Crete in Greece, where I stayed at the incredible St Nicolas Bay resort. As the largest of the Greek islands,…

The Ancient Ruins, Pompeii

Although I’ve never been much of a history buff (I think I have a very poor general knowledge when it comes to past events), the Ancient Romans and in particular the tragic story of Pompeii has always fascinated me. The way they lived, their amazing architecture and their ability to create things more futuristic than their means has always been a point of interest to me – and probably the only topic in our history lessons I actually felt I got something from. The Ancient city of Pompeii was home to a 40,000 strong roman civilisation in 79AD (I don’t have much…
