Ancient Delos. Photo Christian MaskosIn my last blogpost I wrote about my travel-planing:   I´ve organized everything and had the option to visit the amazing ancient island of Delos today.   An amazing place - not only for history fans.  It is one of the biggest archeological sites in the world wich have been nearly untouched as the island was unhabitatet for a long period.  If you are arround in Mykonos area its a must do - even if it is a bit pricy.
