Bees and beekeeping are a super important part of Greek culture, the environment and agriculture! They have an amazing bee museum in Rhodes where you can learn all about the history of beekeeping and even see transparent beehives so you can see the bees in action!! I found out about it through this link https://www.greekboston.com/travel/bee-museum-rhodes/

I have been there a few times & bought some of their products .For example bee propolis cream is a good healer.Propolis is what the bees use to line their hives . Bee hives are reputered to be more healthy than a hospital operating theatre .

Propolis is amazing! I always buy it when i'm in Greece because it's so hard to find in the U.S.! Although I've seen it pop up in a few organic stores

Another earthquake hits waters near the island of Rhodes

Another earthquake hit the waters near island of Rhodes this week, it was pretty small and there aren't any damages or losses on the island itself. Many of the islands suffer pretty frequent earthquakes because of their proximity to volcanic and tectonic plates. The island is prepared for this and takes many precautionary measures. The earthquake was 4.5 magnitude which would usually cause slight damage to buildings but gladly it was in the water.

The city of Rhodes is about to have some major changes

I am very happy to see that Greece is investing in preserving its architecture and mediaeval cities. Rhodes has so much beauty, that I would hate to see it go away overtime because of environmental or other damages and erosion. Their plan is to create three main sectors of the city which will be the monumental, residential, and commercial areas. I'm very curious to see how this project will turn out and how the funds will be allocated. Have you heard anything about this?

Ferry service resumes between Turkish destinations and Rhodes!

For those of you that are traveling to Turkey from Greece using the ferry or vice versa, you are in luck! The ferry services are being re introduced which is great news especially for those that are traveling on a budget. The ferries were close down because of covid and have been closed for some time. Every Friday and Sunday there is a 45 minute boat ride from Fethiye, Turkey to Rhodes. This is such a quick trip and will definitely be cheaper than taking most flights! Has anyone taken this route? Unfortunately I have not and cannot provide tips from personal experience.
