Rhodes 2016

So as most of you know, I recently spent a couple of weeks in Rhodes, Greece. I had an absolutely fantastic time; I can't wait to go again next year. I thought I'd share some pictures of my time there.

The bay of Lindos, seen from the Acropolis, a 5 minute drive from where we stayed in Pefkos.

The hot, hot sun shining on me at the Acropolis


We saw a snake, right outside our hotel - the first wild one any of us had seen in person (they're not so common here in England)

We couldn't let the trip go by without a visit to the Crepe House! That's my lovely sister Katie in the picture.

Here are a couple of pictures taken from a boat off the coast of Rhodes Town.




Here are a few photos taken from our day trip to the other side of the island, where we visited Butterfly Valley and the ancient city of Kamiros:

It's much greener on the other side of Rhodes island, and a little cooler.

We found this gorgeous kitten at one of our stops while we were on a coach tour; he/she got a lot of attention! 

You can see a couple of the islands surrounding Rhodes in the distance.




 This is the ancient city of Kamiros, abandoned a long time ago after an earthquake, all that's left now are ruins:








And now for Butterfly Valley, I've never seen so many butterflies all in one place:









Here's one of the crabs at Butterfly Valley, the butterfly's main predator.




These are just a few of the pictures I took whilst I was in Rhodes, hope you've enjoyed seeing them!

  1. Thanks for sharing! Looks like you had a fun adventure.
    That really is a lot of butterflies in one place.
    Didn't realize England doesn't have a lot of snakes. I've probably seen a hundred or more in the wild in my lifetime.

  4. What incredible pics! How exciting to spend two weeks in Greece! I was lucky to spend a week there MANY years ago, but it looks the same. What I remember most was how clear the sapphire blue water was and the ZILLIONS of stars in the indigo blue sky.
