Mykonos and Delos

Almost everyone who has been on pinterest has probably seen a picture of Greece, specifically the picture of pure white buildings with blue roofs. Well on this day we visited that place, Mykonos. It felt like walking on my pinterest board. 

 The water around Mykonos is unlike any other water I've ever seen. It's CRYSTAL clear.
 For the morning we took a short ferry ride over to the island of Delos. A now abandoned island that used to be ultimate pagan city with the most temples. 
 It's still quite intact and you can still see the outlines of the houses and their rooms
 This is a courtyard of a wealthy man's house. On the other side are the rooms and there would have been a second story. 

 Some of the houses still have the plaster on the walls. 
 This is believed to be the oldest Jewish synagogue. 

 Still can't get over the color of the water
 After our adventure on Delos we headed back to Mykonos to do some exploring. 

 Pinterest worthy. 

Sunset as viewed from our sailboat in the Greek islands. Oh yes.
