Little Rhodes Trip

I had a little surprise trip to Rhodes which was fun as I never had been there even though there are ferry boats from our town that just take 1 hour to go there.

We have several Greek Islands near us, and I never visited any of them but when a friend was going with a private yacht I could not resist and went as well.

I never been in Greece and it was so funny that I arrived there in such a short time. I always thought that Rhodes would be like our town as it is so close but it does really clearly belong to a different country.

I only was there for 1.5 day but seen a lot of the town Rhodes and we rented a car to drive to Lindos which I will blog about too.

It kind of reminded me of Rome at some places.

I loved the look of the old town a lot, it has a lot of charm.

Lots of amazing stone work which I loved.

I definitely want to go back for a longer trip to explore better and see different places of the island.

There are 3000 Rhodes born Turks there and you can still see the remnants of the old days with some Mosques along side churches.

In general I loved the little streets without traffic with lots of history.

We did not go to the castle, hopefully next time.

I loved all the arches something you do not really see in Turkey.

Evil eyes are as popular in Greece as in Turkey.

My love for old doors was also satisfied :)

Although some things are exactly the same food costs 4x more in Rhodes than in our town.

And at night.

I also have pictures to share from Lindos which was beautiful as well.

Hope you enjoyed my trip as well :)


  1. I adore Greece, especially its island part.

  2. I have only been to Rhodes once as it is far from my city Thessaloniki. All of the Dodecanese are near where you live so you should visit them more often. They belonged to the Italians for many years therefore they remind you of Italy. And as the whole of Greece was under the Turks for 400 years there are things that we now share in our culture and food.AriadnefromGreece!

  3. Very beautiful photos! Love how you capture details. I've been in Rhodes many years ago, it's a lovely place. Can't wait to see the next post!

  4. this looks gorgeous!
    And it's so close to where you live!
    It's always fun to see how different towns can be from one country to another :)
