This is the first of several posts about my trip in the spring to Europe which included spending a few days on the island of Mykonos, Greece. A beautiful, scenic island in the Cyclades group that I had an incredible time exploring. I walked and walked and also rented a quad one day to see more. The main town is really cute with white + blue buildings lining the streets. Those iconic Greek colors. The blues matching the Aegean Sea that surrounds this very windy island.
I was one of the first to get on the ferry in Piraeus. It was the morning after the film photography workshop which was the reason I travelled to Greece. A lovely young lady happened to sit next to me. We struck up a conversation finding out that Tina was going to Mykonos temporarily for work. She was quickly very likeable. One of the greatest parts of world travel is meeting people and hearing their stories. People have asked how I could go on this trip alone. It isn’t my first choice but it’s wonderful to meet people and have conversations that don’t maybe happen the same as when I’m travelling with my husband, family or friends.
Throughout my time in Mykonos I would stop by Kayak Ice Cream where Tina was working that week. If you go to the island of Mykonos you must try their mango sorbet and frozen yogurt! I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph this gorgeous gal and loved every minute of the shoot!! Tina has a beautiful, confident way of carrying herself and was amazing to have in front of the camera. There’s something wonderful when thousands of miles away from home to connect with a stranger that quickly becomes a friend! I’m glad our paths crossed and felt so inspired photographing such a beauty in these unique surroundings!
More to come from the beautiful island of Mykonos, other areas of Greece I travelled and Prague!
