And I owe an apology to Patmos because in reality I didn’t quite understand it, seemed a lost island in the middle of many Greek islands with both glamor and beautiful landscapes that made Patmos suddenly look sad and too simple.
The cruise organized a tourist visit of the island that basically boiled down to climb up to the Monastery and visit it with a guide.
We decided to save a few coins here and we paid € 1 each to get up by a local bus, which turned out to be fantastic and know the B side of the island.
To visit the Orthodox monastery, I had to wear a skirt or a “sack of potatoes” to cover the legs as a sign of respect.
The monastery itself was tiny and tight, especially when the entire cruise was inside listening to the guide they paid, we will also hear and tassel.
The view from the top where they “planted” the monastery was superb and really only when we got up there we really appreciate the simplicity of the island and perhaps his great honesty, is what it is and that’s it.
Down before returning to the cruise we took advantage of the extra time to take some pictures in fishing area.
