I left the Greek island of Patmos after spending an amazing week with close friends bathing in the warmth of the Greek sun.

We stayed in Hora, in a beautiful white-washed house that was typical of this small Greek Island known by its orthodox history. Our days were spent discovering the untouched beaches of the island. Journeys that led us to the Livadi Geranou and Petra waters were followed by walks on the narrow streets that dated back to the fifteenth century. The streets took us to traditional Greek kitchens where we enjoyed long lunches full of laughter, local seafood, and drinks. Evenings and never-ending nights on our terrace under the balmy night sky where the scenery of the village and the hills fell into the Aegean Sea will always be remembered.
