I had to dig deep into the family photo albums to find photos to this week’s Travel Throwback Thursday!
I was only one month old when I was on an airplane for the first time and traveled to relatives in northern Sweden, but my first time abroad was in October 1996 when I went to the Greek island Rhodes. As you can imagine, I have zero memories of this trip, but I often get reminded of it since I was eleven months old at the time and took my first steps there. I always talk about how rewarding it is to travel and experience new places, so it’s sort of poetical that I actually learned to walk in another country, haha.
I’ve been back to Greece once since 1996 (Kos, 2002) and I’m actually going to the Greek Island Crete this summer so I will finally experience Greece with a somehow adult consciousness! I’m really looking forward to hanging out on some beautiful beaches and eat halloumi and tzatziki until I explode 😉

Left: an Unknown street on Rhodes, but look how cute I am in my little hat! Haha 😉
Right: Me and my mother in front of what I after some time on Google believe is Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes
(which by the way must be the longest name of a castle ever!)
Obviously knew already then how awesome it is to sleep in a lounger
