WHEN IN RHODES | 5 MUST DO’S IN THE GREEK ISLAND

Greece is always a good idea if you ask me, and even a greater one when its just a bit after the hot season, when most of the summer travellers are back home and you can experience the greek life in it’s best. the weather is still fabulous and the beaches are not so crowded so you can get that tanning bed you want.

If you chose the island of Rhodes make sure NOT to miss the folowing spots:

1| LINDOS

Even if it’s not your first time on the island, Lindos is THE spot.
beautiful white houses and small streets that makes you feel the real authentic greek life, gorgeouses cafe’s and small taverna’s alongside fashionable resturants and bars.

At the top of the village you’ll find the amazing archaeological site ACROPOLIS, the best view you can get in the island is waiting for you after climbing all the way to the top.

2| ST. PAUL BAY

This magical spot is my favorite on the island. after going down from the Acropolis this is the place to get a cold Ouzo or Mojito, grab a little snack in the beautiful snack bar that watches the bay, relax, and enjoy the good life.

Needless to say, swimming in clear water is a must.

3| MANOLIS TAVERNA

The best restaurant in the island is in Faliraki.  Trust me! I know what I’m talking about…
After trying so many Tavernas on the island I can say for sure!

TIME AND US

On his work “Last Second” the artist Christian Boltanski set a led counter to count the seconds since the second he was born on September 6, 1944.
The counter will stop when Christian Boltanski will depart from this world.
His decision to set the counter on seconds as time units makes the viewer feel the urgency that leads to following insights:

Time flies! Fast! Really fast!!!

Time unit that passed will never return again

Our time here is limited and we have no idea when our personal counter will be stopped.

When I stood there in front of CB personal counter, and while touring his so thought provoking exhibition “LIFETIME” in Jerusalem, I realized once again what I already knew, and what most of us knows, but pretend we don’t…
The fact that our time here is fixed  is supposed to make us live life to the fullest at any given moment. Moreover, the fact that it is likely that in a few generations we will be forgotten and no one will actually remember us, what we did or said, should make us always do what is good for us without thinking about other people thoughts about it.
So why are we ignoring those facts most of the time?
Maybe it’s because we understand that realize our dreams is harder than just dreaming them…
How will we feel if we’ll go after our goals and make the best of our given time here in every single second?

things we have learned and places we found:

There is no such thing as too many  blue and white clothes. you’ll find it very useful in certain countries.

Prepare yourself to fall in love with doors and windows

♥ Everything looks better on white background, especially cacti and bougainvillea’s

♥ Lindos is the ultimate place to disappear in… ( clue: St Paul’s Bay )
