The Walking Society

The 13th edition of The Walking Society takes us to Hydra, a small Greek island steeped in artistic and musical history, where the only mode of transport is on horseback. Striking a balance between past and present, Hydra leads a slow pace of life like nowhere else in the Mediterranean, with a creative scene that continues to flourish.

Issue 13 - Ydra

The island of Hydra is like no other in the Mediterranean. A place where you can only get around on foot or horseback, where the urban landscape has remained virtually unchanged for over a century, and where life is about authentic sustainability and slowness.
