Sailing through the World

Rhodes island
      What is it about us, chess players, that we seem never to get enough of travelling? It must be one of the main reasons why we've chosen chess as a profession. We choose to sail through the World, our thirst for new places seeming to never get enough.
      I had some crappy days and my mood was under the ground, but I feel like in the 9th sky now, as I've found out that I'll have the chance to visit a place I've always wanted to see- the Rhodes island! I like Greek islands so much! I've already been several times on Crete and I also visited Leros - there's such a nice atmosphere there- a pittoresque, but in the same time a very lively one! One can get whatever he wants on the Greek islands- from sightseeing and peaceful sunbathing to wild nightlife. There's one more island I'd like to visit one day- Santorini!

Rhodes

     I am so excited when going to new places- I try to visit at least one new country per year. I added to my list Poland, Austria and Hungary last year and there's going to be Kazakhstan, Thailand and Serbia this year,well and Rhodes (though I've been so many times in Greece, Rhodes should be a whole new experience!).
   
Looking forward to writting xoxo from Rhodes, Belgrad, Astana and Bangkok!

As for now, xoxo from Iasi ;)
