One of the two day trips that we took while staying in Rhodes, was to the old town. A walled part of Rhodes set along the water, it’s the oldest inhabited medieval town in all of Europe!
beautiful bougainvillea vines growing all over the place!
We spent the day roaming the streets (getting lost a few times), looking in the shops, and enjoying some halloumi and greek beer! (I’m pretty obsessed with halloumi, as evidenced by its constant appearance in my fridge.) I quite enjoyed some of the older architecture, as well as all of the bougainvillea growing around the city.
As far as tourist attractions go, it’s an alright day spent shopping (if that’s your thing), but I found it a bit lacking in terms of other excitement. The streets are pretty, but there’s not much to see or do there besides shopping and eating.
I’m pretty sure that most of the photos Richard took were of stray cats
My one regret is that I didn’t buy a pair of leather Greek sandals. I had been looking forward to finding some since discovering cool Etsy shops a couple years ago. I ended up being too picky, and kept passing shops by, thinking I would find something perfect around the corner, only to leave with nothing.
Looks like I may have to buy some online after all!
