Why you should spend the winter on a Greek island

Winter is a really good period for travelers, who are deeply interested in the local culture of Rhodes, a perfect occasion to observe the authentic everyday life of the community of the island. This period is also for the travelers who adore nature, silence, who prefer to visit a Unesco site, and ancient, byzantine remains without the crowds of people. For people who are looking for an alternative peaceful, relaxing holiday. Because Rhodes is such a big, fertile, diverse, interesting island with too many gifts of Nature all around the year cycle.

HuMan – Men of the Greek islands

Since I first stepped onto a Greek island (it was Thassos actually) I feel a very unique, sometimes unearthly atmosphere on these “isolated lands”. Different energy of Nature, that shaped the islanders’ life in a specific way from the beginning of times. Nowadays – because of the strong role of tourism business and globalisation process – the unique lifestyle started to disappear by loosing connection with Mother Nature. During my travels to Greek islands (mainly the island of Rhodes and the Dodecanese) since 2009 I was always capturing kind of magic moments of the local people on my amateur photographic level but as an advanced observer of life. They were magic and rare moments because they touched me with their simple human qualities and sincerity, authenticity. For me ‘The men of the Greek islands’ are different people, because they were shaped by the Greek Sea, the Greek Sun and the Greek Soil and they know how to live together with these powers. But on the other hand they are the same like all of us …
