Rhodes in October

Rhodes in October

It’s been a while since the last time the Greek Tourism Board in collaboration with Austrian Holidays organised a press trip to the Greek islands. Fortunately we got back on track, and in the middle of October, a little before the summer season ends for good, a group of journalists and I flew from Vienna to Diagoras International Airport in Rhodes island on a press trip organized by the Greek Tourism board and Austrian holidays. It was a short trip, but we had a wonderful time. These are my photos.

For anyone who cannot make its mind, has doubts and is not sure whether a trip to Rhodes in October is a good idea (weather-wise) let me tell you this: it is a very good idea. I still remember the moment I stepped into my hotel room, went straight forward to the balcony to check the view and saw people swimming in the sea. It’s good that I witnessed this with my own eyes, so that I know where to fly to next October. For when I wish to catch the last rays of summer sun, I will make sure to check the direct flight from Vienna to Rhodes island with Austrian holidays.

Rhodes in October

Rhodes is the largest island of Dodecanese. It is situated at the crossroads of the two sea routes of the Mediterranean, between the Aegean Sea and the coasts of the Middle East.

Throughout its long history, Rhodes was inhabited by different civilisations who left their mark on all aspects of the island’s culture: art, language and architecture.

Rhodes is world-renowned for its history and monuments. It is also a blessed land with long beautiful beaches and a rich underwater environment.

We spent the last day of this press trip in Symi island. We went to Symi for just one day.  What a beautiful day that was it! And so much laughter! I had a swim in Pedi, a small traditional fishing village. And afterwards, we had a wonderful lunch in an amazing beachfront taverna. This lunch felt like it was our way to say farewell to the Greek summer for 2021. Tip: If you go from Rhodes to Symi, it’s worth staying longer.

Ash Rose and Deep Ebony“No one knows for certain how much plastic, which is virtually indestructible, has accumulated in the seas. The best guess, made in 2015, was about 150 million metric tons. Assuming things remain the same, the study estimates that accumulation will become 600 million metric tons by 2040” – National Geographic.

It’s been one year since I got these two pair of shoes. They are from Vivaia, an eco – friendly footwear brand that is making an effort to create sustainable and washable shoes by recycling plastic bottles! I washed my pointed-toe flats several times during this year, and they still look like brand new. Vivaia’s machine-washable shoes (flats and sneakers) can fully withstand a cleaning cycle in the washer or a quick hand washing. I have them in two colours: Deep Ebony and Ash Rose. They are flexible and comfortable! Sustainable and washable.

Croatia is home to many beautiful and unspoiled islands. Last week I had the chance to visit and explore three of them: Rab island, Krk and Losijn. These are my photos!

I flew from Vienna to Zagreb airport. It’s only a 40 minutes flight. A driver picked me up from the airport and we drove to Rijeka. We kicked off the boat tour from Rijeka the next day.
