My friend Hayley recently nominated me for the Liebster award. This is an award bloggers can give to other bloggers that have a small readership and they think other people would find interesting. It is kind of like a chain letter, but a nice way to learn more about people and spread great blogs.

Mykonos surprised me. From what I had heard it is a party island, and I expected it to be that and not much else. Instead what Jess and I found was less party and my favourite town of all!
I was finally getting the hang of this relaxing holiday thing in Santorini when it was time to go. Jess and I got the afternoon ferry to Naxos and realised straight away it was beautiful and interesting in a different but good way. No huge cliffs with soaring views, but instead less crowded lanes, a beach to walk to and sunsets based around an ancient ruin.
