Zoe:
Unless you guys do the meetup outside of Europe I don't think I can even consider joining.

Feel free to propose a site and time that would fit you and matches a bit the requirements we laid out so far.

Zoe:
Macquarie Island boat trip in January, anyone? :) *tumbleweed*

Boat trips are clearly off. Especially if the Ruceks join. I should be in the wider area in January. But that's not on my to visit list ;)

Vega has no mainland component - other than a main island. Somewhat like then bigges island i the Orkneys - called "Mainland" (excactly as Solivagant states).

I don´t know if we already have to many idéas for the meetup. I visited Tel Aviv on my own some years back and really enjoyed my stay there in January ! I really would like to go back to explore more of this area. If we team up during a couple of days I think we all feel more "safe" to do this, rather than being on our own. Just an idéa !

Sadly, I don't think we'll be able to make this catch up. We're going to be be in Chile during this September. Next time though!

Quite sure I'll be checking out the Serengeti wildebeest migration in September unless this or nearby is the planned meetup.

Let's fix it then: Weekend 5/6 sept in Rhodes (Greece). I made a dummy announcement page: https://www.worldheritagesite.org/meetup/2020

Feel free to suggest ideas for things to do or share itineraries in the region.

Careful of the scams the restaurants run, don't order without a menu that has prices and the big boot glass is a dead giveaway ;)

So, started to look into this a bit more.

Sites in the proximity:
* Rhodes City, Greece
* Xanthos-Letoon, Turkey

Tentative:
* Ancient Greek Theaters, Greece: Lindos
* Ancient Towers of the Aegean Sea, Greece: Ro, Strongyli, Kastellorizo
* Ancient Cities of Lycian Civilization, Turkey: Patara, Tlos, Pinara
* Kaunos, Turkey
* Kekova, Turkey
* St. Nicholas Church, Turkey

For the tentative ones we should pick the best one where there is more than option. The towers look funny.

Ferries (I think there are more operators than this, please check).
The ferry Rhodes<>Fethiye runs 9:00-10:30h and returns at 16:30h.
The ferry Rhodes<>Marmaris runs 9:00-10:00h and returns at 17:00h.

Itinerary 1:
* Friday Arrival Rhodes. Rhodes City is open all night.
* Saturday Excursion Turkey (Ferry 9 a.m, return 16:30h): Xanthos and one/the best of the Lyician Cities
* Sunday Excursion Lindos and Siteseeing Rhodes. Then heading home.

Itinerary 2 (a fun one):
Saturday:
* 07:00-07:40 Flight to Kasterlorizo (70€).
* 10:00-11:00: Watertaxi (20min) to Kas. Normal ferries will break the schedule.
* 11:00-12:30: Kas -> Xanthos
* 14:30-15:30: Xanthos -> Lycian
* 17:00-18:00: Lycian -> Fethiye
Sunday: First ferry back to Rhodes.

Comments:
* Personally, I think I will stay in Turkey on Saturday and continue along the West coast back to Istanbul in a week for siteseeing.
* I think there are more ferry operators. It would really help to get an earlier ferry to Turkey and a later ferry back. We could then squeeze in Marmaris / Kaunos which looks interesting. Or one of the towers.
