We caught a ferry from Rhodes to Turkey, then travelled to Pamukale. Here, the locals drive their tractors to the village shops, and there are fields blooming with poppies and other wild flowers. Walking up the hill, we saw Roman ruins,
waded through limestone travertine pools,
and swam amongst fallen Roman pillars of carved marble in an ancient geothermal pool.
We walked up 370 steps to eat delicious stewed octopus at a taverna on the island of Symi.
We caught the bus to this village on Rhodes for the day.
We are staying in the walled medieval city of Rhodes.
Thank you for your love and friendship. I’m very lucky to have such an inspirational mother. I love you very much. Xxx
Our slow ferry from Santorini
docked at several islands,
on its voyage to Rhodes.
We hired a car today, to explore some villages.
