The easy flight from Rome to Mykonos had us in the Greek Isles early in the morning so we could enjoy the whole day. Andriani's Guesthouse is located a short 5 minute walk from the heart of Mykonos Town and is infinitely more reasonable than most other accommodations in the area. Nothing fancy, it's clean and comfortable and family owned and operated. A staff member picked us up from the airport (included with our stay) and kindly allowed us into our room a full 5 or 6 hours ahead of regular check-in. They even had a bottle of local wine waiting for us. As much as we enjoyed the beauty of Croatia, it was nice to be back in a friendly culture!
We don't like to admit it, but the overnight stay in the Rome airport took its toll on us. They say the best way to overcome jetlag is to resist the urge to nap and just wait until a normal bedtime to sleep. Try as we might, that has never worked for us, and we can't even keep it together one time zone apart! What we intended to be a 30 minute nap turned into a multiple hour slumber. But hey, there was nowhere in particular we had to be. Once we finally did wake up, we walked around the cute town for awhile and scoped out a place along the waterfront to watch the famous Greek Isle sunsets.
Dinner this night was at a wonderful restaurant right in the heart of all the action, Caesar's. Advertised as Greek comfort food, it definitely hit the spot. Our adorable waiter was an eccentric middle-aged guy wearing elastic waist cotton pants ("happy pants," as we refer to them) and a vest with no shirt underneath. He was quite the charmer and made our dinner even more memorable. Hirsh had fresh fish and vegetables cooked in paper. Sarah had orzo in tomato sauce with shrimp. We highly recommend this place!!!
