If you find yourself on the quiet island of Sifnos, make your way to Kastro, once the ancient capital of the island. As you wind through the small, white-painted pathways you can peer into the old homes that have been in the same family for generations. Along the waterside of Kastro lies a trail of steps leading to a small, hidden church named Eftamartyres. What seems like a secret find hiding on the eastern edge of this laid-back island, I couldn't help but close my eyes, feel the warm sun on my back and the salty air sweep across my face, and wonder if I too, could stay hidden here.
