Whale Watching

Posted by tosca in tosca's Blog, 25 April 2011 - - - - - - · 11,853 views

My wife and I are due to go to Crete in the next few weeks and was wondering if there are any whale watching excursions as I understand that there is a resident pod of Sperm Whales to the south of the island. Being avid naturalists it would be an amazing opportunity to see Sperm Whales and dolphins.

I Bet You Thought I Would Never Write Again!

Hi there! You are almost right, I didn't have much to tell you, so what's the point of updating the blog?

Oh! Did I forget to tell you about my TEN puppies? ;-) Then I guess you will understand that the reason for not updating my blog is that there has been no time leftover for doing so! I have been and still am totally in command of...

The People And The Sea

Posted by Granita To Go in Granita To Go's Blog, 11 November 2009 - - - - - - · 6,368 views

I've come to believe that people who live within sight of the sea are able to recognize more easily the shades of gray in our lives and our decisions.

Moving To Crete, Part 2

Posted by Pam in Pam's Blog, 03 November 2009 - - - - - - · 6,531 views

I thought it was time to give an update on progress. We had a nice holiday in Crete but didn’t do much this time - unfortunately just before we were due to leave we heard that Bob’s father had been taken into hospital with mild pneumonia and some other infection. It didn’t seem too bad so we decided to go anyway, but kept in regular touch with the fami...

Tips and hints for cheap car hire in Crete

Hitting the roads in Crete with a hire car doesn’t mean that you have to spend a small fortune during your vacation time; quite the opposite actually, as cheap car hire in Crete is a realistic and tangible option.
Here are a few simple and effective ways to reduce the cost of rental and enjoy hassle free holida...

3 Weeks Traveling Around Crete 4/06/08-25/06/08

Posted by pat & pete in pat & pete's Blog, 28 August 2008 - - - - - - · 6,825 views

It seems a long while since going to Crete for our holiday so I thought it was about time I made an effort to put fingers to keyboard.
We arrived in Heraklion around 22.40, no hitches, picked our hired car up brand new, very comfortable, we then headed off to Anissaras, thought we were going to have problems finding the hotel, but do you know what! we...

Heraklion Airport

Posted by old viking in old viking's Blog, 23 June 2008 - - - - - - · 6,592 views

If you want to go to Heraklion airport by bus, you will be dumped on the roadside amidst heavy traffic. The Greek taxidrivers must have a strong union, we had the same problem in Chania international airport: no useful bus connection. Most important: we got our bag with the either downs inside!

Moving To Crete?

My husband and I have reached a point were we are considering the rest of our lifes.
We both have good jobs, earning good money, have a nice house and travels alot. That all sounds nice - but we are bored! That maybe sounds awfull, but it's true.

For many years we have had this dream of moving to Greece. We have been to Greece many times, diff...

Back To The Past.

Posted by Wim in Wims' Blog, 05 December 2007 - - - - - - · 7,897 views

I wasn¢t captured by Joni Mitchel¢s music but by the sound of music that belonged to Zorbas dance, and it seemed to come from a place where people had fun and were smashing plates at each other. I sat down at a table and enjoyed the pleasure everybody was radiating, none the less of all the shattered dishes. I learned that it brings you luck and who doesn...

Few weeks ago I learned that untill that moment I didn't know the meaning of the word heathwave. Oh sure, hot summerdays have been passing along in my country but that was nothing compared to my holliday in Crete from June 15 till June 29.

As from the second day, things were going to turn out quite different than other years. Temperatures rose up...

The first week ,wehad to look after afriend who came over,so it wasnt untill the second week,we really slipped into the real"Cretan" mode!
Its strange,but somehow I always seem to need a couple of days of running round like a tourist before I shake of the British habit of...

Paradise Is Over – Back To Galley

Posted by Wally in Wally's Blog, 29 September 2006 - - - - - - · 7,006 views

Two weeks in Crete is definitely to little
Especially when you are dreaming to come back since you last left the island.
The ‘obsession’ increases when you finally plan your holidays (on September) and book the flight (by end of April).
You know what I’m talking about, right?

So, referring to the entry title when you are ‘rowi...

Did The Dream Come True?

Posted by DaveW. in DaveW.'s Blog, 16 July 2006 - - - - - - · 7,136 views

Yes, I think overall that it did, although the actual physical effort of picking the olives was not the romantic picture that I had in my mind. It was very physical, as my friends in the village had told me, it was extremely tiring. But, heck, it was satisfying at the end of the day to reflect on the friendly back-chat, the disagreements, and I suppose on...

Visits To Crete

Posted by in Rhi' Blog, 27 June 2006 - - - - - - · 7,089 views

Like many of you I too am enchanted by this beautiful island. We started visiting Crete (North West) about 6 years ago, my parents, my sister and I. Having arrived in Chania airport, I have to say I was a little worried that we would be staying in a shack in the middle of a field for 2 weeks, how wrong was I?!

The apartments we were staying at were...

As expected my arrival in crete on the 16th May went without a hitch, i was greeted at iraklion airport by the driver who delivered my hire car and what a welcome even a straw hat for Linda was provided !!! now that is service.
The journey to our hotel (Adele Beach in Platanes) was enjoyable more so due to the aircon in my Citroen C3, having...

Katharo Plateau Via Kritsa

On our stays in Kalo Chorio we have visited Kritsa several times. I can see why Yvonne has bought property there, as it is a beautiful little village and the locals are very friendly. There are plenty of Tavernas and gift shops.You will find the local Ladies sat on the steps of their shopfronts making,their wares for their shops. This is the place we buy...
