Although not that popular as their neighbors Nice, Cannes or Monaco, smaller towns along the Côte d’Azur are actually the true reflection of French charm. Beaches are more pleasant, clean, less crowded, streets seem prettier, you can even meet a local at the cafe (not just tourists) and have a glass of wine in the … Continue reading France: CHARM OF VILLAGES “SUR MER” (6)
Before going to the Côte d'Azur, I have heard a lot about it, reading about "the famous names on the French Riviera beaches", exclusive resorts, Hollywood stars who once got wet in shallow waters of Cannes, Nice, Saint-Tropez, about princess Grace, Picasso's retreat. The Film Festival in Cannes or the Casino in Monte Carlo are … Continue reading France: FRENCH RIVIERA HOPPING (5)
Normandy, French province in the North, full of greenery, flowers, good cheese and wine, white cows with black spots, but it also houses few towns not to be missed when in the region. It is a two-hour train trip from Paris and you will get into town that became well known as the place where … Continue reading France: KNOCKING ON MONET’S DOOR (4)
Paris! You know what it was for me back then? I was actually hoping I would find some "link" to all those French artists who lived there during the 19th century! Years after my journey Woody Allen has made that Midnight in Paris movie, and I always thought that "he must have heard me thinking" … Continue reading France: GOING AFTER BAUDELAIRE! (3)
So, let me begin with Paris. My first memory of that journey in 2003 is related to the unusual heat! Sure, it was August, but that part of Europe was actually hit by some tropical wave that made the weather - unbearable! That could not slow me down, of course, and I was ready every … Continue reading France: TROPICALLY HOT PARIS (2)
Every time I remember my first travel to France, I always smile and feel a bit proud. Sure, I did see all the landmarks and fell in love with the country, but I also had such an alluring agenda (made one myself!), that I would probably do all over again if I were to visit … Continue reading France: A VINTAGE JOURNEY (1)
You know how you plan to see few specific locations when traveling to a new place and you just can't wait to visit? The island of Symi was on my list when I came to Rhodes, right next to all those places on the actual island like Lindos, Prassonissi, Kamiros. I have booked a boat … Continue reading Rhodes Greece: BOAT TRIP TO SYMI ISLAND (9)
After having a blast with Odeon World Travel on the Greek island of Rhodes for a while, I thought that time was ripe for a road trip! Went all the way east from one side of Rhodes to the other, and now I was going back, along the west coast, from Prassonissi to Rhodes town. … Continue reading Rhodes Greece: DRIVING UP THE WEST COAST (8)
There is a lot to see on Rhodes and I was planning for days to take a car and just drive around the whole of this Greek island.

Hope you've had your rest on Rhodes' beaches through the last Glimpse, since today - we are off to one extremely important town of this Greek island.

Okay, so we have visited few historic locations so far, learned a couple of myths, but even though there is a lot still to come, it's time to take a break. I am sure you will agree after checking out these Rhodes' beaches! And yes, even I need a rest from time to time, believe … Continue reading Rhodes Greece: LET’S HIT THE BEACH! (5)
Have to admit that I was avoiding to enter the walls of the Old Town in Rhodes for days, since I have booked a walking tour with Toma, our Odeon World Travel tour guide on the island. After so many things I have already read and heard about Rhodes' history, I didn't want to "spoil" … Continue reading Rhodes Greece: MEET THE (MALTESE) KNIGHTS (4)

Had a day or two to relax upon coming to Rhodes and decided to spend it on the beach and stroll around town’s narrow streets. On the eastern part of the island, they say, the Mediterranean Sea is usually peaceful with a wave or two. But the western coast (the Aegean side) is just too … Continue reading Rhodes Greece: JUST THE RIGHT VACATION TIME (2)
The moment you step onto the soil of Rhodes, it’s immediately clear why they call it the Island of the Sun.
