We came to Rhodes for our honeymoon in May 2019...Through the help of our hotel they arranged for us to have our own chauffer and visit all the wonderful places, sights and landmarks in Greece... Tsambika monastery being one of many... when this beautiful place and its legend was told to us me & my husband jumped at the chance to visit... you see we had been trying to conceive for 10 years, absolutely trying everything... and still nothing happened for us... The experience was like nothing we had ever experienced, surrounded by the breath taking views was magical and very over whelming... I felt closeness to all of the mothers that had the same heart breaking difficulties of trying to concieve too... when saying our goodbyes before returning home I was still skeptical and did not hope too much as did not want to be disappointed again even though we were told we would visit again one day but holding our child... I smiled and only hoped this could ever be true....Exactly 6 mths months later to leaving the island I found out me & my husband was pregnant...we now have a beautiful precious son born on July 2020! We still pinch ourselves everyday that we are dreaming... When I had lost all hope of ever becoming a mummy, I truly believe this amazing place gave me and my husband our precious miracle...Looking forward to the day that we can visit again with our son soon!
Kastellorizo or Megisti
Beautiful! Amazing photos of waters and architecture. My father was born in Kastelorizo in 1900.
We have been to Prasonisi 2 years ago and are booked to come to Rhodes again in August! Cannot wait!
I've visited Kamiros 3 times and every time I was fascinated by the ruins and the ambiance. It invites you to sit down and relax under a tree, enjoy the beautiful view and listen to the cicadas. The sunset is awesome. Very few people around, which is wonderful! Highly recommended. I'm pretty sure I'l go back for more!

Orchids of Rhodes
Dobrý den, Vaše fotky jsou krásné jako většina orchidejí na Rhodosu. Letos jsem tam mel letět, ale bohužel kvůli covid- 19 jsem nemohl. Měl jsem zaplacený pobyt v Lindos od 1.4.-7.4. Moc mě to mrzí, že jsem toto krásné místo nemohl navštívit. Měl jsem připravenou mapu a zakreslená místa kam bych se chtěl podívat a fotit orchideje. Pokud to půjde zkusím to příští rok. Jsem začátečník a zamiloval si orchideje jako další zálibu v důchodu. Zatím jsem byl na Garganu.
S pozdravem Jindřich

Hello, Your photos are as beautiful as most orchids in Rhodes. I was supposed to fly there this year, but unfortunately due to covid- 19 I couldn't. I had a paid stay in Lindos from 1.4.-7.4. I am very sorry that I could not visit this beautiful place. I had a map ready and drawn places where I would like to look and take pictures of orchids. If I can, I'll try it next year. I'm a beginner and fell in love with orchids as another hobby in retirement. I've been to Gargano so far.
Food in Rhodes: Gastronomy & traditional diet
This article is wonderful. :) What an extraordinary array of delicious foods! Such a small place, such an enormous variety of traditional foods. :)
I visited Ancient Kamiros about 20 years ago and I’ve never been able to forget it. I had a strong feeling of what it must have been like to live there. It was palpable and for me, somehow emotional.
Rhodes Old Medieval Town
My husband and I have been going to Rhodes for twenty five years. I have travelled extensively to many places! For me it is one of my favorite places. No matter how often I have been there I always see and find something that I missed the last time. I love the labyrinth of the old town with its cobbled streets, unique shops and restaurants, but most of all it is the magic of its history, you can almost feel the agony and ecstasy of times of old, at times I feel if you listen hard enough you can hear the Knights and feel and smell the battles that told place. It almost as if the stone walls hold the memories of all the blood that was split in the times of war and chaos. At the same time the beauty of it architecture takes you breath away, It is a very magical place and one that I hold dear to my heart and soul. I hope to return again one day before go too join the Knights in there forever sleep!
Lived there 87 & 88, been back lots since. The bakery was in the village back then and the smell of baking bread on the way home from acropolis disco, The loveliest place ever, the villagers are what makes Lindos. They are amazing always helpful and friendly, it's like going home. Wonderful beaches people and atmosphere!
I was on Rhodes, In early 60s I enjoyed the Aquarium then, glad it's still going. Thanks!
