In September 2015 (we always had at least 26 degrees) I enjoyed a vacation on Rhodes – a beautiful Greece island. The clear water, the beautiful bays, the mountains, the small cafes, the fantastic harbor – all this is a part of this wonderful place.
Unfortunately my budget – as I´m a student- was limited. Nevertheless I had enough possibilities to explore parts of the island. The self-organization of excursions and not knowing where you go at all had something exciting and makes this holiday even more memorable. When I think back, I remember not only my experiences but also to the people there. Whereas they work all day, aren´t rich and cope with a crisis, they are open-minded, accommodating and exude a joie de vivre.
In my opinion we should take these people as role models instead of always comparing visually or materially. Even the corners and edges of this place made me feel comfortable an gave me a feeling of humanity.
If you are on Rhodes, you really have to visit the WaterPark Faliraki. There you will find a wide variety of slides – whether big or small. You can enjoy a wonderful view and feel close to the sun. You can spend all day with sunbathing, sliding, swimming and just having fun. The slides are simply SENSATIONAL! But be careful because some are crazy too :D!
This place is magical. As our hotel was located about 43 miles from Lindos we have booked a boat trip. To our surprise the ship had recumbencies on deck. We were able to enjoy not only the shipping and the wonderful breeze but sunbathe, drink and enjoy life to the fullest. In addition the ship has held twice and we had the opportunity to swim midst of the Mediterranean Sea- an indescribable feeling! Arrived in Lindos we didn´t know what we should discover first: the beautiful old town, the Acropolis, the beach or the incredible bay with wonderful clear water! There are monkey used as means of transport because the streets are so narrow. Unfortunately this is the dark side of this place because I felt sorry for the monkeys. But well nevertheless this place is just beautiful and worth to see.
