Vacation: Mykonos Day Two

Day Two saw the biggest pool/chill day ever! We got up early – (I am a NIGHTMARE on holiday! I am up at the crack of dawn not wanting to miss a single second! Sorry Dan!) – & we headed to the hotel Gym.  The gym was outstanding.

Treadmills, cross trainers, bikes & an awesome weights area, it had everything you needed for a quick morning workout!

After an hour in the gym, we had our first breakfast at the hotel.  Faced with the freshest fruit, Greek yoghurt, homemade cakes, pastries, meats & cheeses, I could have literally stayed there all day.  Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day & the Greeks know how to do it!  In England, breakfast is considered a quick, on the go meal.  I like to sit, have coffee, read the news & take my time.

Straight after breakfast we scooted on over to a bed where we lay out in the morning sunshine where we read, listened to music & talked until the cows came home.

Being on holiday is such a lovely thing to do when you work hard for it.  To have a few days away together in the sunshine is just what the doctor ordered! Dan works so hard & I couldn’t be more proud of him, so to see him so relaxed made my holiday!

Sunbathing really does take it out of you (!), so at lunch time we went for a little lunch at the restaurant.

Today we went for the zucchini rolls (which were fantastic!), & the Greek Flatbread which is actually my favourite thing of all time!  Followed by a glass of white wine in the sunshine, I had died and gone to heaven!

Having sussed out the local shops in the nearby town yesterday, we decided to head back to the cute ice cream store that we spotted! Run by the nicest old Greek men, I went for a scoop of Greek yoghurt & cherry & Dan went for the Snickers flavour.

The ice cream was seriously so yummy & eating them whilst walking around such beautiful surroundings was just perfect!

We then did some more sightseeing around the Old Town!

We headed back to the hotel around 7pm where we chilled out on the balcony & got excited for dinner.

About a week before we got to Mykonos, we had booked a reservation at the Nobu restaurant which was located in our hotel.  I had been waiting for this moment forever & I was NOT disappointed!

Having not been to Nobu before, I wanted to make sure I got the very best out of the experience.  I KNEW I wanted the Black Cod as that is one of the things Nobu is famous for, but I also wanted to try their sushi etc!

The waiters & waitresses were like beautiful supermodels.  All dressed in black and sporting their natural Greek tans, it would have been easy to feel intimidated.  The staff instantly made us feel welcome, bringing us Fiji water & sashimi tacos.

When asking us if we had visited before, our waitress recommended the 7 course taster menu.  With this, you got to try a little of everything that Nobu has to offer.  We were sold.  We ordered a bottle of white wine & sat back & relaxed whilst we got brought course after course!

My favourite did end up being the Black Cod.  I could eat that for the rest of my life! Along with the cod, we got to taste the salmon, caviar, sea bass, beef, sushi, miso, salads & an unexpected chocolate dessert!IMG_6686

All in all, the whole experience lived up to every single expectation that I had! It was the best night & getting to share it with Dan made it all so perfect!
