It is known to have been inhabited back as far as 11th century BC and was occupied by the Romans. You can have some fun with the history because you are in the territory that stands between myths and religion and much has to have some substance somewhere. In Greek mythology, Mykonos was named after its first ruler, Mykons, the son or grandson of the god Apollo and a local hero. Mykonos is also said to have been the location of the battle between Zeus and Titans and where Hercules killed the invincible giants having lured them from the protection of Mount Olympus.

  •   There has yet to be a book written in the Solo Cruiser series that is based around a mediterranean Cruise, but we here that one is being planned and that it takes place on a Strictly Come Dancing Cruise. The 4th book based in Florida and the Caribbean is due out early 2018. For now, if you have not read them, like in 50 Shades you might skim through the raunchy bits, but they are great cruise books with good stories. It never seems to work out the way it should though. Follow author Sally Katz by clicking her name and then on the author page on Amazon, click follow. Then as she releases a new book your are informed.
