10 May Kastellorizo
On the eastermost edge of Greece, one will have the opportunity to explore the colourful island of Kastelorizo which is the tiny outpost of Greece that’s so close to Turkish shores locals joke that on a good day when the winds are right, you can smell the kebabs being grilled on the other side. The island was one of the last to join an independent Greece, being signed over to the nation in 1947. The 2011 census recorded its population at under 500 individuals, and it takes a long ferry journey to get to the island. But those willing to come this far will find a tranquil gem of an island unspoiled by tourism where you can live a truly authentic experience of Greece. Katelorizo will charm you from the first moment, as it is blessed from an atmospheric oasis found in few places in the World.
