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.

Q & A with filming / editing mini workshop with cinematographer Hector Torra in Chania Crete, Greece.

While here we had a chance to talk shop and try to find ways to potentially work together. In my opinion it is just a matter of time. In the mean while I asked Hect ...

We chose to watch the cross thrown into Koloura cove in Chalepa, Chania then spend the day and have lunch at the wonderful Tzitzikas cafe restaurant in Armenous, Chania Crete Greece.   ..

Why I supported TEDx Chania
To start with, I need to emphasise on how much every professional, in just about any field, has to find time and effort, and give back to the community they practice their business in, and not just expect to receive ALL THE TIME.   With this in mind I try to find and help with my profession, individuals or groups, that strive, work hard and have a vision. 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 ...
