✦ The Boat Cruise to Symi

We cruised in the middle of the Aegean Sea which is an arm of the Mediterranean Sea. The boats ride gently on the waves of this sea.

✦ A stopover at the Panormitis Monastery

After almost 2 hours of indulging ourselves in tune with the universe, we made a stopover at the Panormitis Monastery. The views as we docked were stunning. The monastery is really beautiful.

The pebble mosaics in the courtyards are glorious, the colors of the sky, the sea, the monastery’s tower, and the courtyard plants are sublime. The architecture and imposing nature of the setting just summed up our trip as highly memorable.

We enjoyed exploring the area around the harbor, an unbelievably colorful and interesting area in a hidden bay where German submarines sheltered during the world war II.

There are beautiful and colorful houses built into the rock face, a lot of shops selling sponges, loofahs, shells and leather goods. There are also many hotels, restaurants, and bars.

Cruising is a truly unique and rewarding way to see the world. It’s turning to nature, experiencing life with a stronger sense of connection to the universe and then having unforgettable memories. This was my best experience on the Island of Rhodes.
