Visiting this popular Greek island during the height of summer, I was not expecting to have the white stone streets and Aegean beaches all to myself. However, I also wasn’t expecting to see Little Venice on the verge of sinking beneath the swarm of tourists that surged from every street. Thank the Greek Gods for the Suzuki Jeep we rented, which allowed us to escape the crowds and explore the island’s hidden gems.
Having jumped straight into a month-long internship in Bristol after finishing my second year of university in June, it felt as if summer was quickly passing me by. But after a whirlwind week of last minute surf trips, moving out of my house down south and visiting friends in London, some much-needed summer sun awaited me on the small Greek island of Mykonos.
