Where to stay in Patmos island

We tried two different kind of accommodations which are located in two different parts of the island. We often like to do that because we get to experience one island in different ways and see it from different perspectives. So we spent two nights in a unique and historic countryside estate that is called Langada and three nights at one of the beautiful villas of Onar Patmos.

Patmos photography

Highlight of my trip to Patmos island was the encounter with the painter Andreas Kalatzis. We passed by his studio/gallery late in the evening and we saw him working on an art piece that he had to ship to the US. Something attracted us to him, and without giving it a second thought, we jumped into his studio! It felt immediately like we have been knowing each other for years but we had just met. Everything about him, his life and his work was incredible inspiring to us! We wanted to keep in touch with him, so we asked for his business card, he took a small piece of paper, he drew a couple on it, and on the back he wrote his name and his telephone number! Definitely the most beautiful business card I’ve ever seen! And the only one I will keep in my wallet!

Sunset in Chania

Sunset in Chania

The other day while I was taking photos during sunset time in Chania, a guy approached me to show me the drone video he was filming. We sat down on the bench and he told me he is a Chania based photographer. I asked him whether he would like to give me this video to post it on my Instagram and on my blog, and he accepted. I am completely in love with drone videos. And how lovely it is to go to a place where you know no one (or okay, just a few) and meet people who share the same passion! To be honest, I wished for this to happened and it did!

Birthday cake

Birthday cake

This must be the best birthday cake I’ve ever had! I usually never celebrate birthdays or name dates, but this year, I happen to be in the beautiful Chania Old Town and I happen to have a friend who is a pastry chef. And if that wasn’t enough, we have birthday on the same day. Just in case you are looking for some cake inspiration, feel free to get inspired by our birthday cake. It tasted as delicious as it looks.
