I have been exploring the Greek island of Rhodes for a couple of days before I started another unique series of travel glimpses that will make you want to discover it for yourself.

The summer was almost there (I was writing this at the beginning of June) and it was already 28 degrees Celsius on Rhodes.

But, do not be fooled, this island is not “just another beachy” place. It’s so rich in heritage and history with a few events that actually represent a couple of major breaking points for what Europe came out to be today. So, join me in exploring the island, learning and writing about the place, while having Greek coffee in its various villages.

Let’s soak up some sun together and enjoy the famous myths (since this is the island which belonged to none other than Helios the Sun god), visit one of the best-preserved medieval towns Crusaders have built, chase sandy beaches all around, and we might even take a cruise to a few other colorful islands nearby.

So, welcome to the island of the Sun god!

    I couldn’t agree more. Rhodes is so much more than just a beach destination and I love the Old Town – the UNESCO Heritage site.

    I am in Datça now, right across Rhodes 🙂 My mum lives here, but unfortunately I’ve never had a chance to visit Rhodes, so I’ve gotten more excited with the new Glimpses series (but I love reading them all as I said before).

    I love Rhodes! I visited it for a day some years ago but it was not enough for all of its history and beaches!
