WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
How did a culturally rich island become a party paradise? The French School of Archaeology excavated from Mykonos in the late 1800’s which by the 1930’s typically attracted artists, politicians, and aristocrats for their getaways. After World War II, travel was far more accessible which meant tourism snowballed into what it is today.
