This place was underwhelming to say the best. For the price, and the four stars it claimed, I was expecting free internet, but I would have even accepted working internet. The employees are borderline incompetent, or incredibly lazy, and the nearest food (other than the overpriced hotel restaurant/bar) is either a 5 mile walk or a 19 Euro taxi ride into town. Don't stay here if you can avoid it.

Mary, Shelley & Dan arrived in Lindos Friday afternoon and settled into Mary's beautiful home, aka The Museum.

Just too dolce for words. ...

... budget tickets a few days before you travel. My plan was to go by train from Athens to Thessaloniki as it is a well documented route and sounds great. My ticket cost me €29 but if you book earlier 3/4 weeks in advance you can get some tickets for just €9. Thessaloniki is going to be fun to stay tuned for that one.
Tomorrow I fly from Rhodes to Athens and into the madness of city life... I wonder if it can handle ...
... quite with maybe 25/30 people on my stretch. I would imagine it's packed in the height of the season.
I headed back watched a movie and popped to the supermarket for a bottle of water. Tonight I will grab a bite and relax on my balcony.
I've enjoyed Lindos but preferred the Rhodes (Rodos) town area. Saying that I ...
