I found the sun in Pefkos Rhodes!
I have been a Rhodes resident for 14years and 13 days (as I write this) an although I didn’t realise it until this week I must have started to take for granted the clear blue skies, azure seas and of course the all important sun, which we have here on the Greek island of Rhodes.
I recently visited, for one week, my home town in the NorthWest of England. Of course I have been back annually over the past 14 years but never really noticed it until this last trip. The weather there was cold, 6.5 degrees C, low lying cloud (supposedly caused by dust from North Africa!), drizzle, rain, hailstone and not only that, I didn’t see blue sky, not one white cloud or the sun in 7 days. My family and friends reported, “it was nice last week!” Yeah, right!
For my return I took a night flight from Manchester with Aegean Airlines via Athens, arriving in Rhodes at 6am in the morning. A 50minute taxi ride later and I was at home to see the sun rising over the sea. Two hours later I was blinded by the brightness of the sunshine. One week away and I had forgotten at just how bright the sun can shine and how good a a good warm dose of vitamin D on you face can make you feel. Its a scientific fact that as humans we spend less time in the sun than at any other time in human history, which is why up to 1 billion people are vitamin D deficient. Sunlight is the best and only natural source of vitamin D. Get your D from sunshine and your body takes only what it needs.
Rhodes has on average 9 hours sunshine per day in April and May. With cheap and easy flights available come and dose yourselves up……book a short stay now….
We are waiting for you!
