The beautiful traditional costumes of Crete

Crete has some of the most beautiful culture and costumes! This video outlines all of the pieces of the traditional costumes and what each part is used for. As you can see, many parts of Cretan culture are based in military lifestyle. Cretans are known as warriors and played a major role in defending Greece from both the Ottoman Empire as well as Nazi regime.

What to do in Hersonissos Crete

Hersonissos is a great town that is located just outside of Heraklion, which is one of the main cities in Crete. The best place to visit is the Roman archeological remains, which have been left since the 7th century by the Roman Empire. The ruins have ancient burial grounds, baths and workshops. I also recommend visiting Lychnostatis Open Air Museum and Labyrinth Park, both are great places to take your family as well.

Where can I eat Cretan food outside of Crete?

Cretan cuisine is some of the best that I’ve ever tried. I don’t visit the island too often, but I do visit mainland Greece. I have two young kids, and the trip to Athens is already enough for them. I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations on Cretan cuisine in Athens or Attiki specifically, but anywhere else on the mainland would do (Corinth for example). I would love to try out some spots. 😊

A beautiful sunset in Crete

My family and I were driving yesterday and just needed to stop on the off beaten path to admire the sun that was just about to set. Sometimes the best entertainment is right in front of you. 460C58D0-C5C2-47CF-A96E-41B973F05128.jpeg

Visit Mirambello Bay on your next trip to Crete

Mirambello Bay is rarely talked about and I have no idea why! This spot is absolutely perfect for swimming and lounging. It is actually one of the the biggest bays in all of Europe, and has very calm and clear water. There is an excellent tourist town nearby that is called Agios Nikolaos with many restaurants and shops that have an excellent view of the bay. Check it out next time you visit Crete!
