France: GOING AFTER BAUDELAIRE! (3)
France: GOING AFTER BAUDELAIRE! (3)

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! (more…)

France: TROPICALLY HOT PARIS (2)
France: TROPICALLY HOT PARIS (2)

So, let me begin with Paris. My first memory of that journey in 2003 is related to the unusual heat! (more…)

France: A VINTAGE JOURNEY (1)
France: A VINTAGE JOURNEY (1)

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 for the first time. (more…)

One poetic trip to FRANCE!

 

It’s that season again when people think about traveling, planning their holidays, going somewhere¬†to relax and forget about their daily routines back home.

If you are into vacations with a lot of things to explore, interested in falling in love with yet another wonderfully amusing place, in admiring great work of art and learning few things about the uniquely French culture and tradition – you are in the right place! (more…)

Rhodes Greece: BOAT TRIP TO SYMI ISLAND (9)
Rhodes Greece: BOAT TRIP TO SYMI ISLAND (9)

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 trip with Ivana, our Odeon World Travel guide on the island, and as the day of the excursion was approaching, I became more and more impatient. (more…)

Rhodes Greece: DRIVING UP THE WEST COAST (8)
Rhodes Greece: DRIVING UP THE WEST COAST (8)

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. Didn’t really know what to expect since everybody was always praising the other, eastern coast, because of the calmer waters and sandy beaches. But what a journey it was! (more…)

Rhodes Greece: ROAD TRIP TO THE EAST (7)
Rhodes Greece: ROAD TRIP TO THE EAST (7)

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. There were couple of lovely trips and walking tours – through Rhodes city or to Lindos, and I have covered it with our Odeon World Travel guides here. I did have lovely time, but I haven’t seen it all yet. And my feet were itching! More and more each day! (Some of you will recognize the feeling!) (more…)

Rhodes Greece: WHITE TOWN OF LINDOS, WHERE IT ALL BEGAN (6)
Rhodes Greece: WHITE TOWN OF LINDOS, WHERE IT ALL BEGAN (6)

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. And we’ll be rushing around its narrow alleys among white houses, climbing up to the Acropolis, we will plunge into the turquoise sea at the very cove where Apostle Paul disembarked once, and we will go into the 14th century church!
