Mykonos Greatest Kiss winner: a kiss isn’t just a kiss… especially when it takes place at Mykonos Grand

The couple that won the Mykonos Greatest Kiss organized by the Mykonos Grand 5 star Luxury Hotel

Whenever I look through photos, I travel. When I gaze at them, they stir and bring that particular moment back to life. And then I lose myself in the image. The faces, the figures, the background, the poses, the ambience, the light, the setting; all elements that illuminate the small or great story unravelling around the protagonists, perhaps even something about the location. This is what happened at Mykonos Grand!

Mykonos Spa: “Time to Shed the Winter Body Blues… at Mykonos Grand Hotel”

Enjoying a relaxing Outdoor Massage, at the Mykonos Grand Hotel Spa, with a view of the Aegean sea

Leaning into the wind on the deck of a ferry boat bound for Mykonos, I closed my eyes and savored the light mist of salty sea air spraying my face each time a swell broke against the side of the boat. This was the first tangible indication that summer was upon us, laid out in front of me in all its dazzling splendor. My “winter” body however, was also here. I had mercilessly been abusing it for months, through endless hours hunched over a computer screen, squirming in the driver’s seat in countless traffic jams, bent over the stove cooking the meal of the day… It was time for my yearly Mykonos Spa visit.

Mykonos Greatest Kiss – A kiss is just a kiss*… but not when it happens in the Mykonos Grand’s embrace

Mykonos Greatest Kiss

I cannot recall my first kiss, the one that irreversibly marked the end of my childhood years. But I can clearly remember the first kiss, elusive and awkward, with the person I married and brought two children into this world with. It seems like such a long time ago… I can’t stop myself from smiling each time the image rises to the surface of my memory, always so fresh and playful. An email I received from the famed Mykonos Grand Hotel on Mykonos –our favorite destination then, now and I daresay evermore –helped dust off the cherished memory of that first kiss and posed a lighthearted challenge with their Mykonos Greatest Kiss contest. Could we do it? After almost twelve years of marriage? With two children? With the burden of our responsibilities weighing down on our conversations and postponing the simple joys of togetherness and companionship for another day?…

I Fell in Love with Easter on Mykonos

Easter on Mykonos

I never used to like Easter. The mercilessly slow, repetitive tolling of the church bells, the seemingly interminable gray, rainy days, the pungent aroma of incense incongruously mixed with the first scents of spring, all gave me a feeling of nausea and weighed down on my mood. Until… I experienced my first Easter on the island of Mykonos.

Amygdalota Mykonou, Experience a Mykonian Treat

Mykonian almond pastries - Amygdalota

There are some flavors that trigger memories as they melt in your mouth. Freshly-baked bread drenched in olive oil and with a sprinkling of sugar, a heaping spoonful of traditional Greek vanilla preserves dipped in a tall glass of ice-cold water, raw cake batter before it’s poured into the pan. However, flavors are not universal. Every nation has its own unique cuisine that has been molded and shaped over time by the environment and traditions of its people.
