Rhodos snaps!

I have just returned from 2 weeks on the isle of Rhodes, or Rhodos as we call it in Norway. The first week was spent with my parents and we stayed at the Epsilon Hotel just outside Faliraki. We visited the old town of Rhodes, Lindos (se posts below) and had dinner one night at the idyllic Kalithea.

The second week was spent with my friend and colleague Ida. We stayed at Zoe´s hotel and apartments just outside Faliraki in the opposite direction of the Epsilon hotel. We walked to the Anthony Quinn Bay every day, a 15 minute walk from the hotel. And every night we walked 30 minutes (one way) to the same restaurant in Faliraki because they had the best food! Yeah, not so imaginative, but we rented bikes one of the days to explore our surroundings, and realized that even if there were a lot of nice beaches nearby, we still missed the Anthony Quinn Bay!!

Everything is not written in stone! 


Lindos is a medieval village. It has only seven hundred inhabitants, greatly outnumbered by tourists in the high season. On top of the town rises the majestic Acropolis, well, the ruins of it! 

Lindos has many historic houses (known as "Captains" houses) often dating from 16th, 17th or 18th century. The village itself is situated on a network of cobbled streets - all of which are entirely pedestrianised. The only modes of transport possible are donkeys and mopeds. 
The houses are small and whitewashed. And the charm of this village is maintained by a preservation order which forbids any unauthorised building work to change it.
