Rhodes is one of the most popular European charter destinations and for good reasons. The island is beautiful with Rhodes Old Town (World HeritageSite) as the main attraction. I stayed in Spirit of the Knight Boutique Hotel, a uniquely designed boutique hotel and at the 5-star, Atrium Platinum Resort & Spa. On arrival in Rhodes, I tried to hitchhike from the airport to Rhodes Old Town, where Spirit of the Knight is located. After 45 minutes, I gave up and took the 2,20 Euros bus.
On the way back to the airport today, I tried again and never gave up. I kept trying for two hours while I was walking towards the airport. Nobody stopped and I ended up walking 11 kilometres from Atrium Platinum Resort & Spa to Rhodes International Airport. I really liked Rhodes despite not being able to hitchhike. With a good public transport system and relatively rich tourists visting, anyone should be able to take a bus or a taxi so why would the locals stop? I guess that is why Rhodes is an impossible place to hitchhike.
I am now back in Athens for one night before going to the south of Greece tomorrow. I really like Greece and will certainly visit it again and again.
