Ikaria, Greece

Last April I traveled with my grandmother, mother and sister to Ikaria, Greece, the island my grandmother’s father was born. On Ikaria, in a small town called Agios Kirykos, my grandmother was curious to visit and show us the house her father grew up in. Her father left the island in 1927 for America and left the home to his cousin to live in and take care of. To our surprise, the home was empty.
