A Rhodos Story (vid)

After a whole month of filming, Oscar Holly, a long time fan of Rhodes since childhood, produced this magnificent video of the island showing a more raw and untouched and at the same time beautiful and accessible aspect of the island.

What makes every adventure traveler's heart beat faster? The discovery of new places, meeting new people, exploring untouched nature, diving into unspoiled waters are certainly just a few. For Oskar Holly, a passionate filmmaker and traveler, making a film about Rhodes seems to have been something of a childhood wish. As he states:

My longest video so far. It takes place on my favourite island "Rhodos" in Greece (the 4th largest island of the country). After about ten holidays as a kid I finally got the opportunity to put all my experiences from this magnificent place in one video.

And he did a magnificent job. Watch the video and enjoy the magnificent landscapes, wonderful beaches, rough slopes and mountains and the ways one can explore Rhodes island without being part of the mass tourism hordes.
