  1. I really enjoyed reading your information on this site.

    I am actually living in Rhodes (although I am from the UK) and have been here for 13 years. I absolutely love it here.

    I agree with you too, even in the winter time, this island is amazing to see. Although it has its cold days, there is still some beautiful weather to enjoy.

    I will be coming back to you for another visit for sure 🙂
