Bikinis in Mykonos, Greece and Chicago, Illinois

Summer in Chicago means packing a lot of fun into a very short season. For Meggan and Sam, kayaking is right at the top of their summer bucket list. They meet up with Dave for a lesson at the Chicago harbor. It's a good time on the great lakes! Americans Dawn, Betty, and Lisa are beach hopping, and their first stop is Ftelia beach on the north coast. This beach is known as the windsurfer's paradise, and on any given day, the wind can blow over 20 miles per hour. The girls cruise to their next spot on the west side of the island, Kapari beach. A secluded spot known for breathtaking sunsets, but to get there, you have to hike down a sandy trail and climb down a steep hill, made of rocks! Dawn, Lisa, and Betty are up to the task. It's not an easy journey, but it is the most rewarding.
