The Perdikiotikoi, Perdiki, Ikaria, Greece, 15th August 2017. I enjoyed the privilege of playing the violin with these lovely musicians for a while at the festival to celebrate the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. #ikaria #greece #greekislands #aegean #folkmusic #greekmusic #reportage #documentaryphotography #photojournalism
My latest travel feature is headlining on @bbc_travel. The setting of my story? Beautiful Ikaria. It's where the longest lived people in the world know how to live life to the fullest.

The word "centenarian" means people who have lived one hundred years or more, in other words, people who have lived a "century." In Okinawa, active social circles among older residents and a strong community also contribute to lower levels of stress and a strong sense of belonging.

Blue Zones is an anthropological concept that describes the characteristic lifestyles and the environments of the world's longest-lived people.

The term first appeared as an international concept in the November 2005 National Geographic magazine cover story "The Secrets of a Long Life" by Dan Buettner.
Buettner identified five geographic areas where people live statistically longest: Okinawa (Japan), Sardinia (Italy), Nicoya (Costa Rica), Icaria (Greece) and Loma Linda (California, US).

The steep climb down to this picturesque cove is well worth the effort. Located near to the village of Armenistis on the Greek island of Ikaria, Nas Beach is situated at the union of a river and the Aegean Sea, surrounded by woodland and streams. Back up on the cliff-top, tuck into a hearty lunch at the renowned taverna, Thea’s Inn.

Ahhhh, makes me feel so relaxed just looking at this. 🙌

Did you know: #Ikaria looks similar to any number of other Greek islands. But there is one vital difference: people there live much longer than the population on other islands and on the mainland. In fact, people there live on average 10 years longer than those in the rest of Europe and America – around one in three Ikarians lives into their 90s.  #remarkable #Greece 📷: @annatinagraf
