Rhodos

After a short ferry trip from Marmaris 3 days at Rhodes was a nice bit of relaxation after all our kilometres. We found an ‘interesting’ pension
Staying in the Old Town was lovely, coblestoned streets, bougainvillea and colourfull doors with peeling paint.
The Archelogical museum was interesting and had a brilliant herb garden and old cannon balls lying everywhere.
We rented a car and drove around the island to three beaches and Lindos where the castle was unfortunately closed but it was a beautiful town.
The palace of the Grand Masters was a lovely building but as far as artefacts and exhibitions it was underwhelming.
We saw the site of the Colossus of Rhodes so that’s another ancient wonder down though there was absolutely nothing there.
The beaches at the New Town were quite nice away from the sunbeds and we found the cheapest Gyros so far, €1.50.
We found the Firth’s famous donut place but they weren’t as good as we’d hoped, perhaps we needed to be there when she had just cooked them.
We had to stay up until 1:00am to catch a ferry and had a really, really, really, really, really long trip to Santorini. 18 hours!
