Jul 25, 2009 - Rhodes and the Old City

Saying sad farewell to Turkey, and promising myself I would be back really soon, I boarded the fast ferry to Rhodes. The fast ferry is also the small ferry and the turbulence was a little vomit inducing but I managed to hold onto my breakfast and disembarked on Rhodes with only a vague idea of how to make my way to my hotel. After getting directions from the travel agent at the port, I hopped on a bus and asked the driver to tell me when to get off the bus, so that I could catch a further bus to Paradisi and my hotel. He said yes yes! so I...

Kirsti's Odyssey

Nov 10, 2007 - Rhodes

After a great night on the unlimited drinks tab, we arrived safely in Rhodes. We went on a bus ride to a place called Lindos (sp??) to see their "Acropolis". You could take a donkey ride for 5 euro, instead of climbing the 300 odd stairs. We opted to walk when we saw a lady, who was big enough to carry the donkey, climb aboard one. We felt sorry for the donkeys and climbed the stairs ourselves. Very windy up to top, view was cool at the top and got some good pics. Stray cats and dogs on this island looking for food and it really breaks...

Rhodes Nick writing The ferry ride from Iraklion to Rhodes was, ..., well, ..., it's hard to describe coming from a culture without ferries. It was long. It was smokey. It was rough, at times. "Non smoking" just meant the side of the room where they didn't put ashtrays. "Sleeping area" just meant a few feet underneath a staircase where regular travellers knew to lay down and snore. And it was also 4 hours longer than scheduled (16 hours instead of 12). Possibly because of the rough weather, or, as we decided, because of the random nature of...

Rhodes was a great choice! Matt and I spent the past four days exploring the island. We stayed in a small beach town called Kolymbia Beach about 30mins from the main town. Our hotel had a great swimming pool so we spent a lot of time there just relaxing - the free drinks helped a little as well! The hotel put on a Greek night and brought in Greek dancers to teach us how to dance. They had a mens dance and a womens dance. It was pretty funny to see Matt up there - you guys would have been proud of him, I on the other hand was a little...

From Santorini, we flew into Rhodes. It ıs a large island very close to Turkey. Our stay here was only 2 nıghts and only one full day. We stayed in a part of Rhodes called the Old Town Rhodes. It is like no other place Ive seen. The entire town ıs contained within the walls of an old fortress. The main new cıty of Rhodes ıs built around this walled town. Cab drivers are hesıtant to travel in the old town because the streets are so narrow. It has such a medıeval feel to ıt. We may have even stayed ın a buildıng where the knıghts of St John...

Oct 9, 2005 - Home to Rhodes

It was really nice to waken up and recognize a place! We woke early while it was still dark and saw lights. We looked out, but there was not much to see. We dozed for a while and got up as it got light to see Rhodes. The ship had docked and soon was joined by a 5-mast sailing cruise ship. We watched it dock while we had breakfast on our balcony. We got ready and walked into Rhodes, passing a ferry which was leaving the dock. We browsed the stores in the old city. It was quiet as most people had gone on tours. The weather was warm and sunny...
