Cruising around the greek islands was something that was on our travel bucket list.
Certainly, cruising is a unique experience, one that you’ll want to do again and again. Whichever route you may choose. Whether the journey leads to the cosmopolitan and popular islands, or to remote islands.
Cruise to Symi
We cruised in the middle of Aegean Sea which is an arm of the Mediterranean Sea. The boat drifted slowly through the water, riding gently upon the waves that rose and fell with cosmic regularity.
The clouds marched across the sky with the perpetual breeze. The sea itself was an indescribable shade of deep blue that exists only in the deep waters far offshore.
A stop over at the Panormitis Monastery
After almost 2 hours of indulging ourselves in tune with the universe, we made a stop over 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.
Symi Main Harbor
The cruising continued, and the next stop was at Symi main harbor.
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 many selling sponges, loofahs, shells and leather goods. There are also many hotels, restaurants and bars.
How was the experience?
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 in the Island of Rhodes.
A Travel Qoute
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ― H. Jackson
