The first case of Omicron was detected in Crete about three weeks ago. The person who had contracted Omicron was traveling in South Africa and most likely contracted the variant there. He has pretty mild symptoms and has reached out to everyone he was in contact with and let them know that they should be quarantining. It is unclear how fast Omicron will be spreading in Greece but time will tell very soon. Keep updated and stay safe everyone!
 

Horse back riding in Crete is so beautiful

I was looking at some activities to do in Crete and I think horseback riding will for sure be on my list!

Beautiful Toplou Monastery in Crete is totally worth visiting

I swear Greece is one of the only places where visiting monasteries is like a must do! Toplou monastery is so stunning and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to see some less touristy sites in Greece!

Earthquake struck Crete last week, but little damage occurred

Last week, an earthquake hit Crete with a magnitude of 5.7 but all reports this since then show that little damage has been done to the island and there are no injuries or deaths. Thank goodness everyone is safe and not a lot of harm was done, especially since people and businesses are really struggling as a result of the omicron variant. As many of you may already know, Greece is a region that is very prone to earthquakes as a result of the mountainous region and tectonic plates so the island is prepared for these types of earthquakes. Stay safe everyone!

Did you know that you can go spring skiing in Crete?

You'd be shocked to find out that you can go skiing in Greece, and not only skiing in Greece, but skiing in one of graces most beautiful islands, Crete! There is a beautiful snow range called Lefka Ori that is gaining a lot of tourists lately. One of the best things about travelling to Crete in the spring is that there are a lot less tourists and the prices will be great! I wish I could check it out but I am trapped because of the omicron variant, maybe next year!
