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.

Bringing some local lifestyle to a villa photo shoot in the South of Crete
Photographing villas for me is a substantial part of my work. The main aspect I try to implement in this type of work is of genuine lifestyle during each photo shoot.

Sfakia is known throughout history for the bravery of it’s inhabitants during every single war that the island has been involved in. A proud group of people that now see thousands of tourists flock by during the Summer due to the passage from the Samaria Gorge and quaint neighboring villages like, Loutro, Fragokastelo and others.

3 years and counting
Penelope turned 3 the other day and reminded us once again that time waits for no one. So I personally try to slow down and enjoy it. Easier said than done, but an effort must be made in that direction. Together with loved ones we celebrated our little miracle. We blew 3 candles, ate some cake, opened gifts and set sail for the next year. Happy birthday Penelope.
