Greece has some 1,400 islands of which only 169 are inhabited. It was August and we bought return tickets to Athens departing in October. From there, we had no idea where to go in Greece, not even our first night stay was arranged. Upon arrival in Athens airport we immediately purchased tickets to fly on to Rhodos. The flight was about to leave in an hour so we grabbed our only luggage – two small carryon bags and my flute and headed for departures. Why Rhodos? We were on a quest, a quest to find the Colossus of Rhodos. All photos were taken by me and the last three photos are from the public domain with their imaginings of the Colossus.
