Postcards from Greece: My Greek Travel Diary


So back at the end of May/beginning of June, me and Katie visited Rhodes in Greece. It was a beautiful, relaxed holiday where we managed to fit in a few visits to local places of interest (in between sipping those cocktails!)

Our Hotel: The Princess Andriana Luxury Resort & Spa 


We opted for an all-inclusive luxury resort in Rhodes that had great trip advisor reviews. I don’t honestly have anything negative to say about the hotel. The food was simply fantastic and there were more than enough options to suit any type of diet. I was super impressed with the vegan spreads they had at breakfast! 
We dined at the Moonlight A La Carte restaurant, which was included with our stay and the food was delicious. 
Our room overlooked the pool area and was super bright, modern and clean.

Our favourite cocktail bar: Lythos Cocktail & Shisha Lounge

This pretty little cocktail lounge was only a 5 minute walk from our hotel. It really is a little hidden gem, serving light bar snacks and the most amazing cocktails. The interior has a real Santorini feel to it and the place had a really laid back, chilled vibe. 


A trip to Anthony Quinn Bay, Quad Biking and Fresh Springs


The fresh springs was only a short drive away and had pretty views and a lovely fresh waterfall, aswell as an old Greek baths. 
We then paid a visit to the prettiest beach, Anthony Quinn Bay and the views were breathtaking. Whilst the beach itself was a shingle beach, the views there are well worth the trip. If you rent a car I’d say definitely make a trip there. We rented a car for the day and was able to drive round at our leisure. 

At the local store, we booked a safari quadding trip. I’m not sure where they get safari from as there were no animals, but it was an ace experience. After our trip on the bikes we had dust in places we never thought possible... 


Lindos

Lindos is such a pretty little village, with white sugar cube houses set into the rocks it is what you would expect from a typical Greek village. But the way the donkeys are treated there spoils the lovely atmosphere and distracts from the pretty views..
 I hope moving forward, Lindos stops using poor donkeys to ferry people up and down the steep steps to the acropolis.
