Lost in Lindos


The town of Lindos is probably one of the more memorable places we went to during our trip to Greece.  It is situated on the island of Rhodes and is probably known to a lot of people because of its stunning view of the surrounding harbours and coastline as seen from its acropolis. To us, however, the beauty of this town was overshadowed by the fact that certain members of our family got literally lost in Lindos!

It was every person’s nightmare! Pinky, Rafael and my mom were split from the group in a crowded market just a few minutes before the tour bus was scheduled to leave. Afraid that they would be left by the bus, I had to ask a Pinoy couple (also passengers of the cruise ship) to watch over Luigi and Marga while I look for the rest of my family.  My adrenalin was pumping so much and, I later found out, so was Pinky’s. To make a long story short, we found each other after around 20 minutes and made it back to the bus just in time.  Apparently, we were not the only victims as there were several passengers who also got lost in the crowded market.

Anyway, these photos were taken before the dreadful event.  We hope you enjoy them as we truly loved this place (if not only for you know what).

We decided to take the scenic route up the acropolis riding these donkeys.  If I remember correctly, it cost around EUR5.00 per person.

We finally made it to the top…

… and this is what we saw – a breathtaking view of the harbour!

Various family shots by the temple ruins – it was the Temple of Athena if I remember right…

And finally, this is where all the action happened!  Now you tell me – who wouldn’t get lost in this town?!

  1. Lindos was definitely one of the memorable places we visited – if only for our heart-pounding “lost” experience – hahaha! 😆

    Hope to get to visit the place again under more, ahem, “relaxing” circumstances… 😉

    • Hehehe! It will definitely be one of those places we will all remember – even our children. In fairness, though, it was a beautiful place. The market and winding alleys were just so confusing. What made it worse is the fact that the bus was about to leave! I’m sure we would have enjoyed it more if we were there more leisurely. Another trip to Lindos? Inshallah.
