Today I thought about my week in Rhodes a couple of years ago. I stayed at the Mitsis Grand Hotel and it was one of the best holidays I have had. I don’t usually have a great time abroad, but this time I loved it. I went with my parents (yes a little odd you may think, but we get on amazing well and they wanted to show me why they love the Greek Islands so much).
I think Rhodes is a very romantic place, especially at night. Walking along the sea front down into the old town is beautiful after a good meal. Lovers and families eat at tables under the canopy of paper lamps. You hear the sound of Greek music everywhere and people are simply happy. Couples meander in and out of little shops and everyone is strolling along soaking up the atmosphere. I hadn’t experienced anything like it before.
But I felt totally alone.
