Mykonos is a Greek island, part of the Cyclades, lying between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos. The island spans an area of 85.5 km2 (33 sq mi) and rises to an elevation of 341 m (1,119 ft) at its highest point. There are 10,134 inhabitants (2011 census) most of whom live in the largest town, Mykonos, which lies on the west coast. In Greek mythology Mykonos was the location of the battle between Zeus and the Titans, and the island was named in honor of Mykons, son of Anios who was a son of Apollo and nymph named Rio. In other words the place is beautiful....and if you are a lover of Greek Mythology oooohhh man!!!!!!!!!

Haven't done an outfit post for a while.... why?..... hmmm I have no excuses! Well this one is short and sweet. Red is not my color of choice for clothing but this dress started talking to me when I walked pass, and I was shopping for really light weight clothing to pack for my summer trip to Europe. Yall know those airlines be tripping. So this is what I wore during one of our dinner nights on a cruise around the Greek Isles.... dinner was such an anticipatory event kml. We were like the only four black women on a ship of 3,500 and when we stepped out, man I guess we stepped out! Showtime!
|Yes I said it....people see you for where you are now but they don't know where you've been. I chose not live in the past because there's a God who trades peace for despair.|
|I was totally clowning around in this pic, my friends have me for a fool I swear kml|
Athens evolved into a religious center dedicated to the goddess Athena. In 1834, after the Greek War of Independence, Athens became the capital of Greece. Before heading out to begin our cruise Mia and I got up really early for a quick Athens adventure.... and kml it was sure as hell an adventure. We were happy to find out that our hotel had a bus that would take us to The Plaka an area near the Acropolis that had lots of cafes, boutiques and tavernas. From there we walked to the Acropolis which is known as the greatest of all archaeological sites. Keep in mind we had to walk up 80 steps made of marble, which was very slippery. But it was well worth it. Also, look out for Old Olympic Stadium, Temple of Poseidon and The Temple of Olympian Zeus.We got into Greece very late the night before and experience another time change, so we should have been too tired to get up but buddy we were not gonna let this opportunity pass. Two of us went while the other 2 stayed at the hotel. I enjoyed this, well worth the lack of sleep.
