Finding some inspiration & new hope for 2018 at the Botanical park of Chania Crete

My journal

Just as the New Year has entered our lives one still lingerers with thoughts of the year that pasted.

For some 2017 was the best yet and for others just a bitter distant memory.

Either way, I personally want to wish 2018 to be a healthy strong and prosperous year.

 

The other day my wife, daughter, some dear friends and myself visited Chanias Botanical Park.

Nestled in the foothills of Omalos, this place is ideal for some local food and for a walk amongst Crete’s flora, fauna and other plants. Not mention many other specimens from around the world.

Popular in the Summer on the way to the Samaria Gorge, visiting the Botanical Park is ideal for the entire family. And very photogenic.

Anyway, happy new year.

Yes, Santorini has another side to it.
After visiting Santorini many times you are lucky to discover the local aspects of the island. One of them being the small town of Pyrgos. This is usually where I love to stay when I go with my family. This year after having lunch in the town square of Pyrgos at Kantouni restaurant we booked or stay on the beach of Perivolos. Staying on the cliffs of Santorinis Caldera in the middle of August is completely insane. Prices are through the roof and the crowds make it somewhat unpleasant. And after visiting the calmness of Amorgos we chose to be on the beach. A bit more family-friendly and spacious it was a welcome 2 nights. The volcan ...
