A Ferry Tale

I finally snuck in some time to prepare couple of posts for you ladies. I gave myself a permission to enjoy these 3 weeks of vacation considering this is it for vacations for the next few months. I really wanted to make the best of it. I am currently in beautiful Mykonos. It is more beautiful than the pictures and videos I watched. The weather has been really good too. Apparently Mykonos is a really windy island but these first two days we have been here, the sea has been calm. I am very lucky to have a local showing me around. My husband’s Jiu Jitsu friend is from Mykonos and he is here for the summer as well. He has already shown us a few things which otherwise as a tourist, we would not have known. Did you know that in Mykonos families have their individual churches? Main reason is because in the old times, the fishermen did not know how the weather was going to be on the sea and whether or not they would return home. The families would therefore build small private churches to pray for their men to return home. When the family member would die, their bones would be placed in the walls of these churches and a monumental stone with their name and date of birth/death engraved on it, would be placed in that same spot. Interesting fact!
I gotta say though that I am a real professional in heels. To be able to snap these pictures by the water I had to go down several rocks. As I was lazy and didn't want to take off the shoes to get down, I did it all while wearing the heels. And I didn't fall in the water! I guess after years and years of wearing then, they become your second nature; even some rocks don't present a challenge :) The outfit I am wearing here is the outfit I wore on the plane ride from Belgrade to Athens. We then took a speedboat ferry to Mykonos. These pictures were snapped as we were waiting for the ferry. I opted for a white short (probably not the best idea while travelling as it gets dirty easily), paired it with a top you have already seen here and the shoes from the same post as well. They are wedges therefore comfortable for walking, but I love the pop of colour it gives to the outfit. I wore a jacket as it gets quite cold on the plain. Big handbag to fit all of the documents and more, and sunglasses to shield from the hot sun. What do you travel in? Ciao!
