Yes Hans but no ones were in bloom, it's a very late season.

At lake Gadoura they were just poping up the soil. Instead i found torrent of mud!

I've postpone my northern Greece travel to end of may most of the higher plants are still under snow.

Many sites are now under concrete, i knew a good zone near Faliráki but now it's a huge resort with plastic trees in front of the gate....

Amazing! I have done so many trips to Rhodes in past years and I’m sure I will do even more in upcoming ones. Greece provides a travel experience that mixes the best of both worlds - relaxation and adventure. This is an ideal and unique travel experience for me, making it my dream vacation spot. We also used Rhodes Airport Transfer in our trip and they provided wonderful service and were cheaper than one alternative I checked.

Indeed, after visiting for job/leisures more than 42 countries i never found such feeling in any other country.
I never "used" such services company but always rent a car.

Not  on Rhodes, but if  someone  likes the  idea of  a  Greek holiday,  there  is  a wonderful place to stay in Stoúpa, Lakonia, Greece, I  can suggest  here:   http://www.fryle.se  where you  can  learn about  the guest  apartment   of  Leif and  Christina Fryle - a  fine  couple  who are  great friends  of  SRGC! The apartment is near the  village  of Agios Nikolaos
