My boyfriend and I have just landed back from Greece a few days ago, and England has greeted me with a lovely cold – How appropriate. So I’m sat here in my bed, watching continuous episodes of Love Island, being the basic being I am, feeling very sorry for myself. So, for the sake of this blog, I will channel my inner nostalgia, and reminisce about gorgeous Greece.
Greece exceeded my expectations and more. It was enchanting.
The blue and white, the most tropical and holidayesque colours you could ask for – Amiright??
So, I will just touch on a few activities Oliver and I did during our time in Greece and make a list of some ‘Rhodes- Must Do Activities’…
Rhodes – Must Do Activities:
If you’re a fussy eater like me, then you will kid yourself and read the menu front to back knowing full well you’ll just order your usual anyway, so I ordered carbonara. However, when in Rome and all that, Oliver ordered the Octopus! I thought it wouldn’t be for me, but to my surprise it was amazing! The most surprising taste, It tasted like Bacon, I’m not even kidding.
The next must-do activity is to visit Falaraki. We stayed in Lalysos, but Falaraki was known for their amazing beaches, so we took a 15-minute taxi there. The beach was lovely, very busy and had a party sort of vibe. There were massive inflatables in the water, as well as multiple boating trips available
Whilst in Falaraki we when to the most wonderful restaurant called ‘Eat Greek’. The people working there just seemed high on life and it was amazing to see. I think in England, we base our happiness on success and assets. Whereas these people were just happy to be alive and well, with the company of their friends and family. It really did put things into perspective. So yeah, there’s a little bit of soppy life inspiration for you, but I thought it was relevant, I digress.
The food they served was second to none. I have a Prawn and crab salad. Something that wasn’t on the menu, but they catered to my fussy little bottom. And Oliver had a lovely burger, so he informed me. We both also had a Greek beer each, which was called Zythos – IT WAS ONLY €2.50!
We also went to Rhodes Old Town. It is one of the most important of the things on the must-see list. The old town is beautiful! Just every corner, every nook and cranny of the whole island is perfect. It all works so lovely and not one part is an eyesore. There are 100’s of shops and little authentic stores selling handmade arts and crafts. It rained whilst we were there and I can promise you that you will have a lovely time no matter what the weather.
One of my most favourite days spent in Rhodes was the day we went to butterfly valley. Butterfly Valley is a place in the mountains called Petaloudes. It takes about 40 minutes to walk from the bottom of the Valley to the top of the mountain. Throughout the whole of the walk up the wooden rickety steps, there are thousands and thousands of butterflies. It’s one of the most incredible sites I’ve ever seen! Much to my surprise, as I thought all the butterflies were scared of me, this happened and I made a friend for life
Once we got to the top of the mountain the views were incredible. You could see the Turkish coastline! And even more so… there was a church where we lit and candle and made a wish.
And last but most certainly not least – To have a good holiday you need to get yourself one of these. IT’S A MUST!
Looking elegant on these things is harder than it seems, may I add!
So, that was my wonderful holiday in Greece. If you do go I hope you love it as much as me!
Till next time,
