From Aghios Kambos

In late April I took a couple of pictures of what I thought were tulips. They turned out to be Romullea Bulbodicum, identified by my wild-flower friend Maureen Hatton. They were in the stony field on the same side as the (closed) café, across the stream. Unfortunately I can't post the pictures. The ...

Re: Sfakia report, May 7th – Asfendou, palaeolithic cave

Really interesting. It must have been fantastic to see. Thanks for the report :-) And thank you very much for all your good advice on flower-locations. Due to the late spring, we saw even more than we had hoped for( -including the "scary" road to and from Kallikrates, which I loved so much...

Re: Phoning another mobile on Crete.

I think I bought my SIMcard in Athens Airport waiting for flight to Chania. I'm not sure whether you can get it in Daskalogiannis Airport.

Re: Phoning another mobile on Crete.

If you want to keep contact with another UK-number while you are both in Crete, it will be cheaper to buy Greek SIMcards. Otherwise, when you call from Crete you pay the traffic from Crete to UK, and the recipient pays the traffic from UK to Crete. We only carry ours for emergency calls, so we keep ...

Re: Wild orchids

Hello Dorthe, I know a place with orchids which is called Gious Kambos above Spilí on the road to Gerakari. Across a small building (Taverna? Kafenion? Shed? always closed in early spring) you will find quite a variety of orchids on a small hill. The right visiting time depends on how winter passed...

Wild orchids

Does anyone know whether there are any wild orchids left at Gerakari? We went there in 2016, and there was just one field left with wild flowers, and that had tracks from heavy vehicles going through it. It seemed that all the rest had either been farmed or used for grazing. We are coming back to Sf...
