What Anthony Bourdain Said About Travel

This is so true, Anthony Bourdain taught us, how to see the world from another aspect, his unique one. 

When Bourdain travelled, he didn’t shy away from the unfamiliar — he ran towards it. He showed us the common humanity we share with others and made us all better for it.

He learned us to travel with open minds and hearts, to travel fearlessly. 

On having an open mind

1. “If you’re twenty-two, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel — as far and as widely...

Sailing Cruise from Kissamos to Gramvousa & Balos Lagoon - Review

My sunny Kalimera and best wishes for a glorious weekend.

Such a nice start of the day ... 

Thank you so much for reaching out!
It was a great trip for us, I hope to return to Crete next year and do another trip.
One person in my group thinks she may have misplaced her fitbit tracker on the ship we were sailing on and wanted me to inquire if it was located? She offered to pay for the shipping if it could be sent regular post to the US?
Thank you again,
- Ted

We love our guests!...

Κalimera from lovely Agios Nikolaos-Crete

Our sunny kalimera from lovely Agios Nikolaos.

Different to all other towns in Crete, Agios Nikolaos manages to mix - upon the three hills which support its girth - an arty, leisurely, sleepy and yet also bustling place. Built partly atop ancient remains of bygone residents' homes. Also known as Agios Nik or Ag Nik (but the whole name is pronounced eye-yoss nikor-lowse).  

Have a glorious day, weekend ahead.

Crete - Rich In History

Endowed by nature, rich in history, full of contradictions and yet welcoming to all ...

The word "island" can't even begin to describe the Cretan universe.

Chania Town - History of Venetian Lighthouse

Indeed, the most recognizable part of small, picrturesque town of Chania is the lighthouse.

But what is the story behind this unique architectural monument?

The story of the lighthouse starts a long ago, although its present form dates back since the Egyptian Occupation of Crete (in the early 19th century).

The original Venetian lighthouse was built from Venetians around the late 16th century to protect the harbour from the Turks. A chain could be connected from the base of the...

A Remote Gem - Kato Zakros

This is a complete remote gem in lovely Crete

Kato Zakros is absolutely way off the beaten track, but well worth the journey that takes you through the beautiful and changing landscape of East Crete.

Kato Zakros, simply awesome, small and personal, quiet and well - it is somewhere you feel a sense of ownership about the moment you arrive. At the end of a dazzling, exciting with stunning views road, descending from the plain around Zakros itself.

At this archaeological site, you’ll...

What to Do When Your Flight to or From Crete is Cancelled or Delayed

It’s a situation that no one wants, much less expects - you arrive at the airport two hours early and, when waiting to board, find out that your flight is either delayed significantly or cancelled altogether. It doesn’t matter whether this was your flight to or from Crete, the mere fact of being stuck in an airport is enough to drive anyone to frustration. But just because you found yourself in a spot of bad luck doesn’t mean you’re completely powerless in the situation. Rather than...

Photo of Day - Heraklion Town by Night

The city never sleeps ...

Heraklion is Crete's biggest city (among Chania, Rethimno, Agios Nikolaos, Sitia, Ierapetra), whose emblem is the Venetian fortress of Koules and it harmoniously combines a multilingual past as Byzantine churches standing next to the Venetian mansions and Turkish fountains and a thriving present with many restaurants, coffee shops and bars that cater to every taste.
