The tale of pottery village.

The tale of pottery village.

Margarites was one of my favourite little villages we visited. Not many people reach the place as it is far away from most tourist attractions. We had a very nice walk along the streets, ate our best meal on Crete in a very old family-run […]

The tale of mountains, emerald water and… goats.

The tale of mountains, emerald water and… goats.

Balos lagoon. Perfect combination of mountains and sea. They call it the European Caribbean. And whoever they are, they are right. There are two ways of approaching the lagoon: 1. You may get into the ship with one thousand other tourists and simply sail there. […]

The tale of leper colony.

The tale of leper colony.

It was one of the most amazing places on the island. A fortress. A leper colony in the past. A home for loads of opuntias. Totally spooky! But no worries, only when you are there 😉 Enjoy!  

The tale of the south.

The tale of the south.

The south of Crete is less accessible due to the fact that the roads are quite old, very narrow and loaded with sharp turns. But, come on, it sounds like an invitation to some fun. We would never say ‘no’ to such an adventure! So […]

The tale of Cretan panoramas.

The tale of Cretan panoramas.

Panoramas are always quite difficult to capture as I never take my tripod with me (too large to fit in the cabin luggage). I am fond of these, I guess. In order of appearance: 1. The plains – view from the Phaestos castle. 2. The […]

The tale of sandals.

The tale of sandals.

1 Fiat Panda 2 people 4 sandals 10 days 16 extraordinary places 1341 kilometres And millions of memories. Again. Crete is fantastic. P.s. In order of appearance: Sandals in Spinalonga – visiting the leper asylum Sandals in Agios Nikolaos – enjoying water Sandals in Knossos […]

The tale of last look.

The tale of last look.

Hundreds of photos taken. No time for editing. No time for eating or sleeping. Been working too much. Found the last part of photographs taken in Greece. Taken in restaurants, at harbours, in the evening. Literally a mess (like me now)!  A piece of hot […]

The tale of Zante’s plants.

The tale of Zante’s plants.

Continuation of Zante’s photos. Summer is gone and I started dreaming of the natural abundance. I could really live in a hot country (nevermind the sun allergy) as they have flowers, herbs and veggies all year round. Miss you Zante!

The tale of Zante’s transport.

The tale of Zante’s transport.

Going to Zakynthos? Forget about buses. One in every three or four hours with a break in the middle of the day. You should either rent a car or travel by taxi. One of the best experiences from the holidays was travelling by taxi. I’m […]

The tale of Zante’s blue caves.

The tale of Zante’s blue caves.

Going back to Zante’s tales – whether you like it or not 😉 This time the caves that surround the whole island. Crystal blue water, small boats, snorkel and fins. That’s all we needed to spend hours swimming, sunbathing, chatting with people and laughing.
