The Island of Rhodes

When people ask me about my best travel experience so far, it’s always tough for me to pinpoint my absolute best because they are mostly all great for a variety of reasons and  at different levels. Some moments that I have experienced while travelling ended up completely blowing me away, in way that I never expected. Years later, I still smile at the fond memories.

I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of having a bucket list and after graduating from University, I decided to fix a physical list. I have a really good time keeping up with my bucket list and  I tend to refer to it on frequent basis. This has  forced me to try new things and discover new places and I have also realized that this is how I want to live my whole life. I started this blog with hopes to share  my experiences and with an aim to inspire others to go out and chase their own bucket list. I made a commitment to tell of my adventures and today I’m going to tell of my most memorable holiday so far. You think that you’re too busy to get away from your busy schedule? You might be surprised to find that going on vacation whether a weekend getaway or some weeks long break is actually good for your health. I hope that this inspires you to explore a new place this weekend or next Summer.

My husband and I spent 2 weeks in  the Islands of Rhodes for a holiday and it was an amazing experience.  Since it solidified that travel had to be part of our lives, it’s definitely one of my top experiences. The bustling landscape, natural beauty, rich history, vast sandy beaches, emerald waters, ancient civilisations, gourmet restaurants and traditional tavernas serving local delicacies among many others, make Rhodes my best  holiday destinations so far.

“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta

These are some of my most memorable experiences in this Greek Island that should make you  consider  a summer holiday here:


  • Be culturally sensitive for example it is better not to visit churches or monasteries in skimpy shorts or tops
  • Avoid peak season
  • Try out the  local wine
  • From here, you can do a day trip to other Greek Islands for example Santorini
  •  Hire a car so that you can explore a little more

Thank you for stopping by! Remember to stay positive!
