An Unsung Haven in the Heart of Cyclades

John Donne once wrote 'No man is an island'. Although the English poet's profound writings are always a source for deep contemplation, in a lot of ways, islands are like men. Like all living organisms they are composed of different parts, they evolve and form their own identity. Some follow the path of modernity while others stubbornly refuse to change. Then there are a select few, so comfortable with what they are, that carve their own path utterly unencumbered by the need to please everyone. This is a story about such an island.
