Map of Ikaria, Greece

This is a map of Greece.  You can see where the island is in relation to Athens and to Turkey, the land mass east of the island.  If you click on the map, it is interactive, and you can zoom in and explore.

Ikaria is basically a large, mountainous rock, sticking out of the Agean Sea.  There are very  few places on the island that are flat and although the island is only 100 square miles, travel takes a long time because there are so many twists and turns on the roads.   The map below shows the road from the airport to the village.  Although it is less than 10 miles the way the crow flies, it is approximately 23 miles of road and takes close to an hour driving time.

    Hi Jackie,
    Read your blog all the time. Think of you often. We’ve had Greek guests recently who know your island and gave us the history. We looking online and I showed them your dad’s work. Very happy for you and your family. Greece is certainly on my bucket list. Jim and I took a longboat cruise up the Danube last year and toured Budapest (mother grandmother’s place of birth) and ended in Prague. The Inn’s former owners, Diane and Mike, live there and we spent several days with them. I would travel the world if I had enough money.
    PS A former student, Katlyn Snyder and I are on facebook. She is studying in Spain and is living in Madrid. She is visiting all the places in Spain that we did, and we are sharing stories back and forth. How cool is that!
    Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
    Love
    Chris
