Miracle after miracle ...the butterfly, the cat, the vaulted interior, the open doorway, Laocoon, river pebbles, ice cream in the shape of fish, even the coke machine... on and on.

After 4 days in Dusseldorf, it was time to jump on a plane and head to Greece for some serious r+r on the sunny beaches of the islands.
Rhodes has become an annual pilgrimage for me. These are some photos from this year's visit.

Rhodes: possibly the most amazing and beautiful spot on the planet.



(Or is it the photographer's skill?)




Can anything really be known?

brilliant photos, been to other greek Islands but may now try Rhodes, thanks for sharing them :)

Which ones have you been to? Many people visit the Cyclades and miss the greener islands. Rhodes is verdant and lovely. So is much of Crete, the Sporades, the Ionians, and some in the north Aegean like Lesvos. Many people have the wrong idea of Greek islands. They visit the two most rocky and barren islands (Mykonos and Santorini) and think they have seen the "typical" Greek island but oh noooo:)

Ibiza, Rhodes, Mykonos, Corfu ...

You follow your nose, MidtownGuy, to nightlife hot spots that are also centers of beauty.

Here's a more northerly one to get a wind of and add to your next itinerary: Krakow.

(You heard right.)

we have been to Zante, Corfu (my favourite, had my honeymoon here, very green), crete and Kos, the usual tourist one

ablarc Ibiza is not a greek island :p

MidtownGuy
October 18th, 2007, 01:23 PM
oh, ablarc was referring to the threads I posted from those locales.

It's true, I like to dance and I'm a real night owl so I do tend to pick places that have good nightlife. Krakow...hmmm...I shall investigate further!!;)

Turkishann, glad to hear you've gotten around to those islands. I would like to retire in Greece one day actually. Or maybe not retire, but just keep working since it's all done on a computer anyway.;)

turkishann

what a lovely idea, I would love to retire abroad, getting tooo expensive to live in the UK

have you ever been to Turkey, we love this place

MidtownGuy

I went to Turkey only on a day trip from Rhodes. The coastal towns like Marmaris seem to look just like Greece! Just beautiful. Of course, it was Greek at one point so that explains the Aegean architecture. :)
I would like to see more of Turkey. Do you prefer it to Greece, and in what ways?(other than prices)

turkishann
October 19th, 2007, 12:04 PM
I love both, did not like marmaris though too comercialised, I must say the prices in Turkey attracts me at the moment because I have children (and the turkish are fantastic with kids)

however I do love the little greek islands but more expensive. 6 on one and half a dozen of the other really :)
