#travelwithricheros contest, Rhodes - Greece

This contest is for you to plan one full day for us on Rhodes island. It does not have to be a lengthy post with a lots of details but a plan starting from the beginning of the day until the end and a plan that includes us all. I would however say that the better the plan the better are your chances to win, most important it must include us all one way or another and be original and creative.


Who is travelling

In total we are 7 people travelling:

  • Father: 37 years of age that likes to be active, explore and see new places, hiking, spots, boating, motorcycle, photography, dining and will not say no to a delicious drink at a nice lounge bar.
  • Mother: 33 year old that likes to relax on the beach, shopping, dining, boating, sightseeing, hiking.
  • Mother of mother: 55+ years that likes to spend time with the kids and relax by the pool, fine dining, sightseeing, hiking.
  • Daughter: 12 year old, loves to be active, learn about life outside Norway and loves play in water like water-sport and water-parks.
  • Friend of daughter: 11 years old girl that tags along with my daughter of 12.
  • Daughter: 3 years old, likes to watch theatre and play in the water
  • Daughter: 7 months old and we don't know what she likes at this time ;)

We will be staying near the sea in the north-east of the island near the airport and Rhodes city, moving around is not a problem. Our calendar is pretty open from the 19th to 26th of May, maybe there is something happening on those dates?


water-park, car rental, restaurants, historical sites, local delicacies, scuba diving, stroller, babysit (while mother and dad go out for dinner?), hiking, beaches, dining, theatre, water-sport, pretty much open for anything; surprise us! :)

Very interesting idea about organizing a contest about #travelwithricheros going to Rhodes!
I have been there in 2014 for one week. To organize a whole day with all your family is not at all easy, because you are many and you have children also. I will try to give you some advice for one whole day!
After you wake up and take breakfast, if you have a rent car, go and see Lindos! It lies on the east coast of the island and it is about 50 km south of the town of Rhodes. There, you will find a fine beach, where the children with grandmother can stay while you and your wife will take a ride to Acropolis. You can use donkey to go up, but it not be so heavy to go by feet. It's a popular tourist and holiday destination. The beach is very soft and proper for children and low level of water.
After 2 hours here, you can take back the road to Rhodos, but make a stop to Villages on the coast. In first village, Charaki, you can take lunch, because here you can find the usual taverns, restaurants and bars.
After lunch, you can go to Faliraki, where you can see Anthony Quinn Bay (here was filmed Zorba The Greek movie). After this visit, for the joy of children you can go to Water Park, which have has waterslides and a wave pool and special places for children.
After couple of hours here, you can go back to hotel to take a shower and change your clothes. After the sun is down, you can go in Old City for a walk and dinner also.
In the Old City you can visit Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights. In Old Rodos you can find souvenirs and a lot of restaurants.
After you finish with eating and shopping, must go and see the port and the One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, Rodos Colossus (or a part of it:)) - here you can go with children or you can leave them with your mother in law:)
I'm sure will be more that enough for you and your family this day and the next day must come back in the port and if you don't have sea sick, take a ferry boat and go to visit Marmaris (Turkey). Will be very interesting even the ride with ferry.

Hope these info will be helpful and you will adjust at your needs for a wonderful holiday!

Enjoy the trip!

It’s a great idea to do this kind of travel plan contest! Inspiring post. I visited Rhodes on my own and had a great time. It’s much more difficult to plan for 7 people here, hmmm...🤔 When I was there, I found myself almost the only solo traveler at this honeymoon destination.


Thanks, I must admit that I'm a bit afraid that I ask of to much or that the idea of this contest is somewhat misunderstood. I did however trow in a coupe of openings like "include all one way or another" and "be original and creative", so in that regards I was at least expecting something like; eat breakfast, go to the beach, eat lunch, have the grandmother watch the kids so the father and mother can go to restaurant X where they serve the best xxx in town etc...". As for the bonus for a vote or resteem I'm holding back to see how popular this contest will be, after all I want to give something back to the steemit community :)


I really like your idea. Good luck with the contest!

This is a fun idea. I wished I had thought of this for our Vegas trip last month. Nice contest and I bet you will have a blast on your trip. I have never been to RI myself.
