this is one great photo tour which is enlightening. It's not very often that one can see pictures of these places which were mentioned in biblical history.
Patmos is very interesting where most of the buildings are painted in white (any reason for this?) and the seemingly Crusaders' fort is visible up the mountain but I'm just wondering why the island and most of the Greek Islands and even the mainland are seemingly barren?
Kos which I believe is a part of Turkey is equally interesting like Patmos but in contrast, is greener and the buildings are differently built.
and through your photos, the rest of the places you visited are truly amazing and I'm sure you enjoyed your trips.
I experienced a day trip to three Greek islands (Hydra,Poros & Egina) a long time ago and your photos although of different places brought me back a sort memory.

I like both of these countries, I've been to Greece but not in Turkey.
A quick question: what are the similarities and dismilarities between the two?

Houses are painted white to not absorb much heat. The fort in Patmos is not a Crusader castle but a Byzantine monastery built in 11th century over the cave believed to be the one where John the Evangelist had the vision of Apocalipse (in reality, the author of Apocalipse is unknown and the cave identification is pure speculative).

Kos is part of Greece like most islands near the Turkey coast. Before 1923 when was a population exchange between Greece and Turkey, most of villages and towns on Turkey's coasts (both on Mediterrana and Black Sea), also some inland areas like Cappadocia, were majoritary inhabited by Greeks. I think the islands are so desert because of grazing of domestic animals (goats) and the Kos may be greener because is mostly flat and the soil suffered less erosion.

In Turkey the distances between localities are big and the vast uninhabited spaces are very relaxing. Also there is higher variety of landscapes, soil and rock constitution and people seem more happy, even the poor villagers. Greece on the other hand has nicer architecture, I mean there are no new buildings without esthetical aspect like in most Turkey.

Kos is part of Greece like most islands near the Turkey coast.
Thanks dude for your informative replies. Yes I agree with what you said about the biblical stuff.
In fact, I watched the Atheist experience on You Tube and I think I'm leaning to that direction.
I always know that Kos is a part of Greece and there was a time I always read anything about Greece
and I know a lot of the popular Greek islands but I missed that.....ooohh I think my memory fails me
