On the first day of my Rhodes road trip I explored the west coast of Rhodes from Ialyssós all the way down to Fourni Beach and returned back to Ialyssós via mountains and cute little inland villages. Earlier I had also discovered the medieval Rhodes old town together with the more modern part of Rhodes town, so on the second day of my road trip it was time to hit the east coast of Rhodes.This was my route on the east coast: Continue reading
Earlier during the day I explored the west coast of Rhodes from Ialyssós to Fourni Beach. It was a fantastic road trip: quiet beaches, stunning lush green nature, archeological sites, historical castles and massive caves, cliffs and rock formations along the rugged shoreline.To get back to my homebase in Ialyssós I decided to take the mountain road to see what the inland and mountain regions Continue reading
Rhodes is a large and versatile island with plenty to see and do. I had already explored medieval Rhodes old town together with the more modern part of Rhodes town as well as the historical town of Ialyssós and Filerimos Hill. However, there is much more to Rhodes than just these places so I rented a car for a couple of days to discover the island further.My plan for day 1 with the rental car was to explore the west coast from Ialyssós all the way to down to Fourni Beach and return in the afternoon via Continue reading
As some of you may know, I am a person who loves planning and creating lists. Sometimes I wish I was not like this but what can I do! On the other hand, when it is related to travelling, having a good time and enjoying life I don’t think it can be a bad thing right?
For the upcoming summer I have created a list of things to see and do, both locally and internationally, however, I have not locked any final plans or booked tickets yet. So I almost already know what to do this summer and my Continue reading
Year 2016 has nearly come to an end so let’s stop and look back at the highlights of the past year. This year has been extremely hectic as I have been doing extremely long hours at work, studying a part-time MBA on the side but fortunately I have also managed to do some travelling and quite a bit of blogging, too.Unfortunately I did not have as much time to travel around the globe as I would have wanted to, however, I did travel to Estonia, Thailand, Greece and Denmark.

Right now I would give anything to be able to go back to Greece or just any other place on earth where it is warm and sunny. It is November and the weather in Finland is currently extremely grey and wet. No sunshine, just dark clouds and grey November rain with harsh wind. I suppose our autumn and winter will be like this at least for the next couple of months until the snow falls. According to the weather forecast first snow might fall already today, but so far it is just raining.This is why I want to take us back to Rhodes where the sun is shining, in the evening painting the sky with all shades of pastel colours. I wish I was walking on the beach watching the sun set below the horizon and Continue reading
During my holiday in Rhodes I woke up at sunrise every morning to do my morning run/walk along the coastal paths. One morning I headed towards Rhodes Old Town and by the commercial harbour I accidentally found an entrance to the gigantic Rhodes Old Town moat surrounding the walls of medieval Rhodes Old Town.It was still early in the morning, not too many people on the move. There was no one else in sight and the gates were open. I was not sure whether it was ok to access the moat but Continue reading
