The Rambling Writer Explores More Greek Islands, Part 10: Ancient Lindos on Rhodes

The lovely Classical remnants of the Lindos acropolis hover like a dream on the rocky cliffs high above the deep blue Aegean Sea. Come climb these layers of history with Thor and me.

My first entry in this new blog series posted here on Saturday, 10/20/2018. It gives an overview of our rambles from Athens to seven islands in the Dodecanese and Cyclades groups, ending our ferry-hopping pilgrimage on the anciently sacred island of Delos.

    • Everything in the islands seems to be blue and white! I can never get enough of that deep blue sea. (And the weather wasn’t nearly as hot as the year before.)

  1. Lindos is really nice and the island of Rhodes is probably my favorite Greek island overall; beautiful beaches, lots of cool ruins. My favorite so far anyway…
