Useful app for walkers, sailors and drivers.

Hello Erno and Sfakia Forum readers. I thought I'd share this with you. This is a very useful, free to download and use app, which is available in many languages for your smartphone, including Greek. Every 3x3 metre area of the planet has its own three words. Imagine needing emergency medical servic...

Re: New video to promote Crete

DAMN! I wish I'd not watched that now. Makes me miss Crete even more and long to be back. The people, the food, the architectural history, the culture, the sea.....I could go on. As I say to people, you can leave Crete, but Crete never leaves you. Always in my heart.

Re: Tourism drops in Greece after 5 record years

Don't shoot me for the comment - there is good meaning behind it. Is a small drop in Cretan tourism numbers not a good thing? I can only speak for the Sfakia region, as I know it well (since 2000), but I'm sure I'm not the only one who has seen a huge growth in visitors, especially to Hora Sfakia po...

Crete shows its potential.

Ok maybe not exclusive to Sfakia, but a woman from Crete has won one of the most prestigious TV shows in the UK. It's a cookery competition watched by millions here.

Best wishes.

Re: White Christmas for Crete comes one day too late

Erno,
Any information on motive?
