Re: Mosquitos

Erno, very well put. So I feel I am your neighbour, just a bit north west of you, in a place called Agglìa. Mike, I find even more ironic that several of the counties/regions that voted en masse for Brexit are the ones that are more subsidised by the EU (Wales, Cornwall, Teesside). For instance, thi...

Re: Sfakiano gorge

All's well that ends well, lucky them to have somebody to rescue and pick them up instead of enduring a night out in the mountains.

Cheers,

Re: Sfakiano gorge

Erno, the Sfakiano Gorge trail is consistently waymarked with white-blue signs, already from the south border of Niato Plateau. They must have missed the junction a Trikoukkia', where there is a sign on a big stone (I remember seeing it coming from Kali Lakki a few weeks ago). Said that, it's diffic...

Re: Sfakia report - last posting

Jean, a cumulative thank you for all of your reports. My wife and I will be in the Sfakia region in the second half of May. We will try to post some photos and comments, especially if the Internet connection assists us.

Re: Pictures of our recent and less recent hikes on Lefka Ori

Hi Dave, We walked the Volakias route to Agia Roumeli in about 13 hours, starting from Xyloscalo at 6am and arriving at AR at 7pm. Optimistically I thought we would get to AR in time for the last ferry to Sougia, where we had the studio (we had driven to Xyloscalo and left the car there in the morni...

Re: Pictures of our recent and less recent hikes on Lefka Ori

Thank you Erno and Jean. Jean, we usually visit Crete in May and yes this year we had the impression that there was more snow than in 2014. From the Ornio ridge we saw huge snowfields on the north side that were 7-8 meters thick, probably more in some points. But the most haunting place in Lefka Ori...

Pictures of our recent and less recent hikes on Lefka Ori

Hello everybody, as keen hikers and Crete enthusiasts my wife and I have spent our summer vacations in the past few years walking extensively in the Lefka Ori region. I thought to contribute to the new forum with a selection of photos which I have just uploaded up here: https://picasaweb.google.com/...
