“Delightful and marvelous”

Steady rain has been falling since this morning. The sun has decided not to make an appearance once again today. On afternoons like these, you get the gloomy feeling that day has all but forgotten to break. Darkness and bone-chilling dampness. Yet in the corner of my mind there is something that keeps me bright and cheery. That gives me a familiar, cozy feeling. A vivid recollection I am eager to experience again and again. I curl up under the warm blankets, close my eyes and am transported to the “delightful and marvelous”, where the sun always shines bright, shedding its golden spotlight on the beauty spread out below it, on the Cycladic island of Mykonos, on Ayios Yiannis Beach, at Mykonos Grand, the only Mykonos hotel featured on the Conde Nast Traveler Gold List 2014.

Mykonos Grand Amphitheatre, a unique event venue

Mykonos Grand Amphitheatre Gala dinner. Sunset setting overlooking the Aegean sea. ‘Countless are the types of buildings and structures that man has designed and executed for a myriad of uses throughout the course of his history. A handful at best are those that have not been altered or improved upon in any way, that have proved capable of corresponding to new needs, enduring the winds of change, and living and breathing to this day.
