Day 5- Exploring the Island of Rodos

This will be a half ass post.  I am exhausted from an 8 hour journey tour of the island (and I wasn't even driving!!) Syn drove the whole time, kudos to him, it was like the Kangamangus HW, but 10 times worst!

Here are the highlights of today:
  1. Visited Lindos
    • Took a Donkey ride up to the Acropolis ruins
    • Viewed the picturesque St. Paul's Bay
  2. Sunbathed and swam at Prassonissi Beach, a peninsula beach consisting of two islands that are only joined together in certain months of the year based on the water levels.  One side of the beach is wavy and the other side is calm.
  3. Lunch at Cristina's seaside restaurant - I wasn't impressed with my meal (my least favorite) but I'm glad Helen and Syn enjoyed their fish meal.
  4. Visited Kritinia Medieval castle 
  5. Visited Kamiros Archaeological site which was an ancient city that was destroyed in 226 BC by an earthquake
  6. Poolside at the apartment
  7. Dinner at Manolis Taverna - Faliraki
  8. In search of coffee and dessert on bar and disco street but found strip clubs instead
