24h escape to the South of Crete in Paleochora

My journal

It all happened mid week, 75 min away in less than 24hours in September.

Paleohora in the South of Crete is our favourite destination “get-away”.  Amazing beaches, great food and family atmosphere.

And all that can be arranged within one stop. Just drive up to the “Palm Tree” and you are done. Perrakis family takes care of the rest. Rooms, food and tones of smiles.

We have always loved hanging out there from our single days up to now as a family. Andreas, one of the three brothers has been a buddy of mine since my cycling days and now we both enjoy time together as dads.

If that ain’t proof of friendship longevity I don’t know what to compare that with.

When on the island perhaps lake Agia should be on your radar of visits.

My job then is to help that vision become audio, visual, or both. I can either photograph, capture a film or simply guide in the best way that I have learned thus far. TEDx Chania approached me with the need of photographic coverage of their speakers. Being the low season of ...

A holiday photo walk around Chania Crete.
Walking around the town of Chania near the end of the year one gets a chance to live some of the traditions here in Greece. First thing you will notice and feel is that Christmas isn’t as big of a deal as it is in other parts of the world. Here in Greece Easter is more celebrated and way more festive. Still the spirit is out there and people have a good time. Another noticeable and pleasant aspect is the weather. Especially here on Crete, if you want bellow zero temperatures you will have to drive up into the mountains and due to the high altitude (up to 2453m) even see some snow. But down at sea level temperatures rarely drop into t ...
