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.

Penelope turned 3 the other day and reminded us once again that time waits for no one.

Aromas, flavors, bazars and history around Istanbul Turkey (Part 1)
A couple of flights away from Chania, Crete Greece we ended up in Sultanahmet Istanbul.
As you fly in over Istanbul, you are reminded that this is a city of over 12 million people.
In search of a short trip near Chania, my family and I decided to spend a few days exploring the wonders and as much history as possible.
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Galata tower, Taksim square just to name a few.
This is my “warm up” post before I manage to edit and share some more of the images I captured during our trip.
Stand by for part 2 and thanks for visiting.
Keep calm and (come) to Crete
So guess it's around that time of the year to start planning on visiting Crete again, or for the first time.
Well, we are here and waiting. Come on down.. :)
