It is simple to really feel a bit typical when you arrive in Mykonos. The folks of Mykonos are a mighty fine bunch. Everywhere you turn there’s completely browned skin and crisp white shirts. Kaftans also dominate the summer season uniform of the Meditteranean’s elite. Believe designs of an apocalyptic Burning Man wind smock nature, rather than an Eastern ‘burbs Camilla.
Aside from studying how to create definitely out-of-character sentences about farshun, I discovered to appreciate the mystique of Mykonos.
The white-washed – under no circumstances believed I’d use that phrase in a good sense – exteriors of Mykonos celestially glowed with otherworldly charm, a contrast to my house country’s red brick suburbia and taupe gum trees.
But this smaller-town idiot nonetheless had a lot to discover from the island exactly where hedonism is a offered. It is an island of the gods, infant. Be as further as you like.
1st, I was to ditch the monk-like sack dresses and higher college footy shorts I’d put on by default on lazy summer season holidays.
It helped that I was travelling with my mate Breanna Espina, a ridiculous Eurasian Megan Fox / Angelina Jolie hybrid who is constantly immaculately styled. When we’re collectively, I appear like her girly teen son who she would’ve required to birth when she was 10. But her effortless, style-forward approaches had a good effect on me that trip.
Like constantly, she influenced me to make an work, and guarantee we captured these uncommon moments with a helluva lot of images.
Exploring the Island of the Winds initial – devoid of taking images – meant we could effectively discover the secret and not-so-secret corners of Mykonos prior to we returned to attack with our cams.
Along the way we also picked up immeasurable guidelines, like:

- Get your tan but unquestionably attempt to prevent heatstroke mainly because your m8 may possibly have to give you an ice bath and supervise you when you are about to faint on the toilet
And for your pictures…
