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


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!

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!


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!

Greeces first case of Omicron was detected in Crete

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!

Why St. Nicholas (Agios Nikolaos) is very important in Crete

Agios Nikolaos is a very important Saint all over Greece, but he has a particular importance in Crete and his feast is highly celebrated. Agios Nikolaos is the protector of children, they need to come and fisherman. Fisherman or an extremely big part of Crete and he is said to protect Crete's fisherman, who are a big part of the islands economy and well-being. He is from a city by the sea in Asia Minor so he has another connection to the sea there. On December 6, port cities in Crete celebrate with festivities and celebrate the navy and the military. Agios Nikolaos is also the patron saint of the city Agios Nikolaos in Crete.
