Blessing. Cretan food and People.

When it comes to summer vacation, 

is my number one on the list. 

Since 2005, when I visited the island for the very first time
 not even one year has passed without me

swimming in its deep, wild seas

wandering around its picturesque little villages with the extraordinary names

meeting the locals and hear the most weird stories about people and life

making new friends while choosing the sweetest watermellon

connecting with animals and nature while walking along its gorges

dancing in the naughty and playful sounds of lira

drinking crystal clear alcohol in tiny small shots till blindness

eating the real taste of every ingridient

filling my lungs with air without acidity

living pure life

I trully hope someday to call this everyday life. 

For Antonella and Creta I love, for its blessings. 

p.s. Photos taken by Olympia and Antonella, one night full of flavors and laughters. 


  1. ooh I totally agree with that! Crete is an incredible fabulous island where I was lucky enought to spend 2 months of my life travelling around.I met so many beautiful people over there with a special mentallity and i had the chance to taste the Cretan cuisine!!Delicious :)

  2. I would love to visit Crete. I wish I had the time (and funds) to travel more.

  3. Noone could describe it better than you did...... Happy to find you!

  4. a story to make you laugh: some day George came back from his visit to Samaria and he had a hat which had written upon it "gorge Samaria". when I saw it I laughed hard and told him "they write your name wrong!!!"

    embarrassingly it took me a couple of minutes to understand why he s laughing too. :(

  7. @ vita τα γράφω όπως τα έχω ζήσει. Εγώ την ευχαριστώ για όσα μου έχει δώσει. Δεν γνώριζα το ιστολόγιο σας και πολύ χάρη για την εξειδίκευση στην κρητική κουζίνα. Θα τα λέμε...
