Travel Blogs from Rhodes
... clothing and vests and cameras still scream “tourist” we tried to explore the parts of the city where the locals live to try and observe how they live their daily lives.
The restaurateurs have this annoying habit of standing outside, yelling and beckoning as you walk by to come inside their restaurant, which is only magnified now due to the current economic crisis in the country. We feel bad ...
... Rhodes was under control of Italy) the palace was restored for the King and Queen and Mussolini, but didn’t get to move in because of WWII. Apparently the Crusaders built forts along the way to the Holy Land and built forts after they got kicked out of the Holy Lands. They also built hospitals and served the communities they were in. We were told they did not marry and by that did not delute the culture of the places they settled in. Of course we are reminded ...
... roamed the Old City early when most of the shops and restaurants were closed, so the streets were rather quiet.
... as I booked the holiday lol).
Suitcases packed, time to return the hire car keys.
Our last dinner, was very nice - had a glass of wine too. Seems so final :-(
The coach collected us at 21.30, the drive to the airport surprisingly quick.
Thank goodness the flight is on time. Time for some duty free, then off to catch the flight.
Hope to return to this beautiful island next year ...
... other end of the beach.............perfect conditions for some power kiting :-D. So for about an hour before sunset we managed to squeeze in some well-earned kite time.
Back to the hotel for some dinner, yay chocolate fudge cake!, and maybe start to organise the packing (scrap that!) lol. We had a chill at the bar with some soft drinks listening to the water.
Think tomorrow, we'll be squeezing in some last minute sun at Tsampika ...
