Travel: Mykonos – Delos tour


Work started this week so my posting is getting more sporadic! Sorry… but life is hard 😉 Actually work has not really started yet because the first two weeks are orientation and training… so a lot of coffee/cookies/free lunch and chatting! 🙂

**************

Okay. Into our Mykonos trip. I joined the half day Delos tour.

Delos is 30 min by boat from Mykonos. It is one of the biggest and most important archeological sites of Europe. In the mythology Delos used to be the birthplace of the ancient gods Apollon and Artemis and their temples have always been the center of the Holy Island. Like on Mykonos first settlements on Delos have been found from around 3,000 BC by the Karers from Asia. The small island has been for centuries and more than one times the religious and political center of the whole Aegean Sea.  Due to a changeful history Delos suffered many occupations and totally distractions, which played a part to the fact that more and more people left the island which is uninhabited since nearly 2,000 years.
