Re: Sfakia report, April 12th, Kallikratis, Asfendou

Thank you for the report Jean, I am not into flowers but very much a voracious eater of any kind of horta. My favourite one is vlita, which unfortunately is not yet on menus in late May, early June when we usually are in Crete. So we usually order Stamnagathi, slightly bitter but all right. I don't ...

Re: Sfakia report, April 2nd – Loutro, Phoenix, Sweetwater path

- Up in the high madares near Pachnes, where there have been avalanches, a shepherd went to see how things were at his mitato and couldn’t find it.

Re: Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Thank you Erno,

And Merry Christmas to each and everybody reading this. In these days we are planning our 2019 vacations. It will be Crete, probably not the Sfakia area that we have visited so many times, but the south coast of the Heraklion province and the Asterousia range.
