Escape to the Aegean

The UK summer holidays are finally here and my poor wife (an overworked primary school Teacher) is about ready to collapse. The one thing that has kept us both going are our holiday plans; we are heading back to Greece for two weeks in Rhodes. To say we are looking forward to this trip would be an understatement of epic proportions. We all have a stack of books to bring with us and I have been making a list of places I want to visit. This year its just myself and my wife and our youngest daughter and I suspect their main destination of interest will be the pool complex in our hotel!

Rhodes is one of a number of islands in the Aegean that could be described as a crossroads between Europe and the East. Its been fought over and controlled by the Minoans, Romans, Byzantines, Turks and the Fortress of Rhodes is a World Heritage site. Needless to say its high on my list of places to visit during our stay. I'm planning a couple of posts while I am away but the reality is that I could just as easily end up sitting around the pool reading and find that blogging is far from foremost in my attention. So things may go temporarily quite here, if only for a couple of weeks. I'll probably be posting holiday updates on my Facebook Page if your really interested but otherwise I'll post some history related posts here when I return. 


  1. Hi

    Have fun and Have a Boot of Beer. It well worth your time to walk the walls of the city and see the wonderful Knights Hospitor defences.
