La belle Tiiu Kuik was photographed in the fab island of Patmo in Greece by Camilla Akrans for the New York Timesand its Travel Summer 2009 issue.
Patmos doesn’t have an airport. So you'll take a seven-hour ferry from Athens or fly to a neighboring island and then catch a catamaran. Patmos is in no danger of having a Nobu anytime soon. But it does have two award-winning restaurants.
It is one of the most religious Greek Islands because it is where Saint John the Divine had its revelation and wrote the Apocalypse. It used to be an important place of pilgrimage and belonged to the Church. From this unique past, the impressive Monastery of Saint John and signs prohibiting nude bathing and topless are remaining.
