Venice via gondola.I think I get asked this question about 10 times a week. First comes the typical question of "Where do you come from?". And then almost instantly after I say Australia, the next question is always "You come from Australia? Wow, why do you live in Italy then?".
Verona from Castel San Pietro.When most people think of Italy, one of the first cities that comes to mind is Venice. And, rightly so. Venice is every bit as beautiful, magical and unique as you imagine it to be and it's definitely one for the bucket list.
Mykonos has to be one of the most photogenic cities I've visited. W A T C H this space for my Mykonos travel guide! But until then, enjoy Mykonos' beauty through photos. <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-577"

Mainly because I found a decent deal on what looked like a great hotel and secondly, given that we were going in June I was hoping to stay away from the Oia crowds.
