We stayed at a friends hotel with a pool (unfortunately we weren't by the beach) to cool off from this awful heat!! I always prefer the beach but let me tell you this was a treat :)

This looks gorgeous! Where in Crete is this?

Check out this traditional Cretan song and dance in Rethymno, Crete

Cretan music is so lively!! How I wish to be in Crete right now to watch these talented musicians and dancers

Greeces first omicron variant case was detected in Greece

I don't mean to alarm anyone, I am just updating and providing news… The first case of the omicron variant of Covid was found in Crete just the other day. Although I am assuming that there are many more people who have contracted the omicron variant, this is probably the first recorded case where someone has a positive test. I suggest that everyone be quite careful when travelling to Greece because it is such a populated tourist area, especially during holidays such as Christmas and the summer time.

Beautiful Christmas Carols from Crete!

Christmas carolling is a beautiful tradition in Greece that is celebrated and done throughout all regions of Greece. Crete has some special Christmas traditions such as the Christmas boat which you will see in the image of this video. I would love to visit Crete one day to celebrate Christmas there and experience all of the beautiful traditions and hopefully see some young school children singing and spreading Christmas cheer.

Elafonisi beach is just unbeatable

The low tides are the best part of Elafonisi beach because you can wade in the water and relax without waves, seaweed or deep dirtier water. I love this beach!


Cretan dance flash mob in Sydney, Australia

This is so beautiful to see! Everyone gathering around of all ages enjoying Greek culture all over the world! Bravo paidia mas! Cheers to everyone, I hope to see more and more of these cultural initiatives, especially now that so many Greek festivals are shutting down. Culture is everywhere and should be celebrated!
