We returned to Greece to sail the Dodecanese Islands for the second time. This summer, however, we took off from the port of Kos (instead of Rodos), and traveled north to the islands of Kalymnos, Leros, Patmos, and Lipsi. We took the “road” a little less traveled this year and ended up with a very different experience – it was a little more relaxed, more rustic, and definitely more windy with rougher seas. Our captain was also younger and drank a little (lot!) less, which made us all feel a little safer aboard. Overall, Greece never disappoints, and I am happy to say my skin is no longer translucent, but instead a speckled light tan color.
