Reasons for trip


On a beautiful day on the island of Kos we boarded a speed jet for our journey to Patmos a little island in the Cyclades. We had read some nice reviews about this island and travelling round the Cyclades once again, this was one we had not visited. We had booked Nicholas Studios a little place near the port but far enough, so has not to be in the town. On our arrival at Patmos. Nicholas the owner and his son Thomas were waiting for us, our luggage loaded into the van and just a short trip to our room, which is within walking distance and on the flat we only had rucksacks but if you had cases it's maybe a bit of a struggle as it's up a dirt track to your rooms. We were shown to our room very nice and typical Greek very clean but basic. We had an upstairs room with balcony looking on to the family small holding chickens, goats, rabbits, all of them had names, the garden was well kept. Our breakfast was served by husband and wife and was a feast, as the days went on we realised there was something special about Patmos and its people we have never found such kind selfless people anywhere. The first few days was hot and I was bitten by an insect whilst sat on the beach, Niko had offered to take us to the monestry but I said maybe not as my leg was a bit swollen. Niko insisted we visit the hospital he took us there at once and I saw the doc who gave me cream and tabs. We did get to the monestry and the cave of St. John where the apocalypse was written, very moving experience, although we are not religious this place and its people touched our hearts and restored our faith in humanity. Their kindness went on and on bringing us sea urchins to try and octopus. We went to the monastery ourselves a few days later, you can get a bus, taxi, or walk, we caught a taxi and enjoyed the walk back. Our next journey took us to Astipalea, that's another story, and wonderful place.
