Phil's 60th birthday out of the way and off we go! (we changed before we left)
Packing should be simple, it will be hot! This isn't Wales, nor Cornwall that can let you down, this is the Sun Island!
We had three places we were going to see, if nothing else, Lindos, Old Rhodes and the valley of the butterflies apart from Faliraki.
The night we arrived it was hot, no breeze and about 27 degrees at 11.00pm. We checked in to Hercules Hotel, left luggage in the room and immediatly had to go walking to find supper as the coach from the airport had been so late. But amazing, much to my surprise, YES, as Phil explained, they would cook for us, no matter what time!!
I was prepared to eat anything that night,(maybe not raw fish) but special greek salad with extra feta, fresh bread and pork chop and chips; was above all expectation.
Did he have dry white wine? Yes of course, a glass or a caraffe he asks? Enough said.
The man was a HERO.
Yes, and later that night the mosquitos made a meal of me too. So aircon was brought to the rescue. Switched on and ready to do battle the next night.
Hercules Hotel is basic, all you need for a bed and breakfast option. Our lovely Maria was at our beck and call on reception, whatever the problem.
The following morning Phil could not wait to look his old friend up, Tony owned the Victoria Hotel in Faliraki. He was watering his potatos when we found him.
Although the climate was very hot (up to 37 degrees some days), there were always beautiful things in colour to photograph randomly day or night.
Stay in touch, more on our week of bliss to follow.
