Excellent flight until we reached Rhodes airspace. Diverted to Dalaman, Turkey as winds at Rhodes airport were to strong to risk landing. 90 mins at Dalaman then flight to Rhodes resumed. Still very windy but pilot of Thomas Cook flight did an excellent job of getting us down. Round of applause!!
Now at our hotel via taxi courtesy of Olympic, but too late for a meal. [11.15pm] Never mind, bar is still open.
Rodos Palladium is a great hotel and can really not fault the whole outfit. Now been their 6 times, and will return again sometime.
Fantastic weather for early June, 33 degrees C most of the time. Bit windy, but who cares, lots to see and do on the Island. Rhodes Old Town is a must for shopping and places to eat and drink at sensible prices.
At the end of our stay Olympic provided our taxi to the airport.[ 03.00hrs ] Not the best time to fly home, but flight left slightly early and arrived back at Gatwick ahead of schedule.
A great holiday thanks to Olympic Travel and the Palladium.
