A Place Apart

At the beginning of this month, September, I holidayed in Greece.

I revisited places I already thought I knew well, yet this time was able to see them in a different light.

I stayed in two towers.

The first, the Tower Suite at the Villa Andreas, Rhodes Old Town, afforded me a a sea-captain’s eye view of that UNESCO World Heritage site.

The second, the Jasmine Room at the Emporio Hotel, Nimborios, Symi, gave me clarity.

After only two nights there, I left feeling completely refreshed.

I would have liked to stay longer, greedy with bliss.

I would have liked to keep this to myself, selfish with luxury.

But if I never left, I couldn’t go back.

And if I never shared, there’d be no joy.

Tholos restaurant, Symi, Greece.

Waiting for good friends to join me for dinner.

A glass of wine and the evening traffic keep me entertained.

I’ve written about this restaurant before.

Here and there, and elsewhere, my favourite, anywhere.

Into the Blue

One September Saturday, together with a good friend and her salty-feisty sea-dog, we went swimming here.

At Lachania, on the island of Rhodes, Greece, the beach is close enough to the village to take its name and distant enough to keep its integrity.
