Having been trapped in an airport in The Terminal and stuck on a deserted island in Castaway, on-screen, Tom Hanks hasn't had much luck when it comes to travel.

Off screen, however, the Oscar winner is at ease with checking out global hotspots, spending the summer visiting some of the newly trendy locations in Europe.

In June, the star and his actress wife Rita Wilson stopped by the tiny Greek isle of Antiparo – population 800 – located about 240 miles southeast of Athens, and reachable only by ferry or private boat. The pair, who cruised into the harbour of the Aegean Sea hideaway on a luxury yacht, joins a growing roster of celebrities, including Madonna and Angelina Jolie, who have visited the Greek islands on their own getaways.

And summer isn't over yet. More recently Tom and Rita took to the high seas again, cruising the Turkish coastline on board an opulent yacht, the four-masted, $250,000-a-week charter Phocea.

The Mediterranean country is growing in popularity among the jet-set, with Uma Thurman and her hotel tycoon beau, Andrea Balazs, recently taking a romantic break in the charming port town of Bodrum.
