From Place To Space: Rhodes

Happy Monday, folks! I hope you all enjoyed a fabulous weekend and you are ready for a good and refreshed start into a new week (unless you are enjoying bank holidays and I envy you endlessly). To start the new week, let’s have a little inspirational trip together. Shall we? How about the sunny island of Rhodes? Here we go!

The Greek island is located in the south-east Aegean and is considered to be one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations. In ancient times, it used to be home to one of the seven world wonders – the Colossus of Rhodes. Today the island is highly appreciated for its abundance of sunshine and beautiful beaches. However, the island bursts also with some great sights. The Palace of the Grand Master is a major spot in the capital’s old town. The Acropolis of Lindos in the southeastern part of the island is magnificent and the old Ottoman architecture is remarkable. 

The old town of Rhodes city is a little gem. Narrow, cobbled streets are lined up with shops and restaurants, old town houses showcase a plethora of weathered Mediterranean colours and local artisans are the best addresses for a really nice souvenir. The food is delicious as well – try the excellent fish and seafood specialities. One of my favorite beaches is the so-called ‘Anthony Quinn Bay’ on the eastern coast. Framed by rocks, this sandy beach has incredibly clear waters and a tiny little beach taverna serves yummy Greek plain fare. 

So, are you invigorated and inspired with sunshine and Mediterranean colours? I am. And I am kind of ready for a new week. Have a great one!

      Thank you very much, Liz! I haven’t used any filters for the pics in this blog post apart from the last two shots which were taken with Instagram. There, I used some of the default filters.

    I need to be there and eat that food you’re eating in one of the photos. This looks so much more appealing than unpacking boxes!

    Hope your week is starting well ;-)

    I love how rustic and natural this little town feels. It reminded me a little like Venice, but even more raw and real! And you got my mouth watering when I read the excellent fish and seafood part! XO
