Patmos Life, Greece
Dodecanese Islands, Greece
John the Apostle wrote the Book of Revelation here.
Patmos is magic, steeped in mystery and ever so chic.
And bloody hard to get to which is half the fun.
In Chora, humble doors lead to magnificent homes , dining sets are Patmonian antique ceramics, interiors hand-painted in a Venetian style and patios inlaid with stones from Lambi Beach.
In the labyrinth of the passageways, black robed Monks walk by from the Monastery and the cave.
While back in Skala, is the treasured Patmos Eye, owned by the au courant couple, Marietta and Freddie who meticulously plan everything from beach lunches according to the direction of the wind, to making homemade picnics for sailing to the smaller islands in our wooden Caique.
Swimming in secret spots, driving through goats, having lunch with Monks mixed with a chic creative crowd - all - in a mystical island, is definitely my thing.
