It’s time for the last day of our Contiki. We did two islands in one day, Chios and Mykonos. I actually think that this was my favourite day of the trip. Chios is a cute little island which is the home of Mastica. Mastica is primarily a liquor I believe, it’s made from the sap of a tree but they make so much from this too. You can get soaps and lollies and perfume and all sorts of things but the liquor is pretty nice!
After a short explore and coffee/juice stop we got back on the ship. From memory I think we mainly napped and got ready before we got to Mykonos that evening. This was the only night we had on an island and we all wanted to enjoy a night out. So after a couple of pre-drinks we got off the boat (in the custom matching t-shirts we got in Santorini) and headed out to explore.
I’m still kicking myself for not recording the names of places we went because our tour manager took us to some awesome places. This one had the most incredible views and we had some really good drinks there too.
This is such a terrible photo and I look a little like Miranda Sings but it’s just so hilarious not to share. It was incredibly windy! Besides the insane wind, the island is so beautiful, ridiculously beautiful, especially at sunset. It was definitely my favourite island! We just had so much fun there. Jamie and I broke our morals and shared this crepe because it just looked so good. It was crispy and nutella-y and it had biscuit pieces and strawberries and even thinking about it is making me drool. Although the stomach ache after wasn’t so fun.
The rest of the night consisted on drinking and dancing and just generally having an amazing time. In all honesty, despite having so much fun, I wouldn’t recommend this particular tour. It was disappointing to spend so little time on each island and I’ve heard that the other tours through the Greek Islands do a lot more. It was still pretty cool to experience a cruise ship and us and the team had lots of laughs. You have to do something like this at least once! It’s such an experience!
