Since I was a child, I have dreamed of getting married while the beating of my heart could still take my breath away, when I still needed time to get ready before he saw me, when all of my hopes and desires would still be vibrant and pure, untainted by the demystification that comes with the passage of time. My dreams have finally come true!
I “Google” feverishly in an attempt to unearth that one special place that will embrace our love in its welcoming arms. “The world’s most erotic destinations”. “The world’s most romantic destinations”. “The world’s best beachfront honeymoon destinations”. “The world’s most luxury honeymoon locations”. Our memories will be etched on mind and soul, and we, sitting side by side after how many years, I wonder?, tenderly holding hands, still in love after all this time, will smile with the sweet melancholy of fulfillment at the thought of those days gone by … of our honeymoon.
One destination pops up again and again…Mykonos.
Its narrow, flagstone alleyways lined with modest, whitewashed homes, always spotless and welcoming. The scent of the fickle “Meltemi” north wind, at times calm, at others intense, that clears land and sky of excesses and restores your zest for life. The elegant shops, local “kafenia”, inspiring cuisine, exotic cocktails, chic, international designer clothing and shoes, fashionable accessories, …the sound of music carried by the breeze, echoing along the alleyways. I sway ever so slightly and move on. The beaches of Mykonos … unrivaled, boisterous, spotless, celebrity-strewn, evocative… inimitable! The people of Mykonos … hospitable, warm, discreet… natural professionals.
I think of my good friend who traveled the world as a tour guide. He went everywhere, saw everything. Yet every summer, like a wandering sailor, he longed for that corner of the Earth he calls his own, his Mykonos. He fell in love in Mykonos, he married on Mykonos, had his honeymoon on Mykonos, and he brings his daughter summer after summer on Mykonos. Why? “Because there is no place like this place,” he repeats.
Here you yearn to live, taste, feel, let yourself go, touch, breathe. Here, “now or never” is a way of life. Here you feel fortunate, attractive, warm, passionate…
We made it… it’s been twelve years now. And since then, we keep coming back here time and again. With our first-born, and then our second child, hearts now beating strongly and steadily, flaws in full view, love ever present. Back on our beloved island, back in our beloved beachfront hotel, shared memories of our Mykonos Grand honeymoon hotel bring us even closer together, our laughter becomes a touch more carefree, we joke like we once did, tease each other, see each other in a different light. “Because there is no place like this place,” we say again and again.
