The Greek Islands - Leros

From Symi, we took the ferry to Leros, another island but bigger than Symi. Unexpectedly we were picked up from the ferry port and taken to the hotel. Our hotel room overlooked the castle and the hotel overlooked a lovely bay, Panteli Beach, which we could walk to for dinner.

... is, by far, hands down, much more awe-inspiring. One can see where John slept (makes the wooden pew look comfy) and exactly where he stood to write the Apocalypse.

In the morning we went on a tour to the cave where it is believed St John the Apostle was exiled to, where he experienced an apparition and wrote the book of Revelations. Above this cave is a monastery that was built 1000 years later, around 1100AD, in recognition of St John. The village ...

... and Sorrento before finally making it to Rome (where sadly, we will really have to leave Fantasyland).

In the last week, I’ve discovered a new favorite on the ship – sunrise from the Sky Bar. The views are absolutely stunning and it’s an incredible way to have that first cup of coffee. That’s where I am now, and we’ve just pulled into the most precious Greek island, Patmos.
