Im sure most of you know, but please be careful if you are in Rhodes or traveling to Rhodes. There are wildfires on the island and it is very dangerous.

Oh my goodness, I hope you are okay. How are things now? Are some people able to return to their homes with power?

The damage is done, but I am very glad to hear that. It will be a slow process

Birds eye view of Monolithos Castle in Rhodes

Monolithos Castle is a stunning castle that was built in the 15th century and remains until this day. This is a birds eye view of the castle so you can get a good idea of what the ruins look like. The Castle is located in the the village of Monolithos which is about a couple of miles from the city. There is no fee to get into the area and walk around and its open pretty much all day!

Welcome to Pefkos, Rhodes

Pefkos is an absolutely amazing destination to go to on the island! It has a great beach and wonderful restaurants and coffee shops in the area. The beach is not overcrowded and I personally think its a great place to go with family and kids. There aren't too many organized activities on the beach but it is great for swimming. Here is a great areal view of the beach.

Palace of Grand Masters being converted

work to start soon to convert it into cafe / restaurant .

We had snow last night on Rhodes

Most of the island had the snow.Even on coastal areas like faliraki & afandou. The 1st time in 35 years
