Rhodes really looks pretty - we've visited the Cyclades islands this year (Amorgos, Santorini and Milos) and really love their vibes! Maybe we'll do Rhodes or Crete this year, we'll see with the lockdown...

Rhodes is nothing like Santorini or Milos. It is much more relaxing and being located near Turkey, it has some really tasty food you can try. The Town of Lindos with its beautiful white buildings is the only thing similar to Santorini's beautiful white buildings.
