From Plakias to Tsoutsouros

This drive was congested for part of the way from Plakias to the turn off that goes toward Heraklion. There were many cars and vans on the roads and the traffic was slow and backed up for many miles. This, of course, does not make my husband happy...when he drives...he likes to drive! But, having… Continue reading From Plakias to Tsoutsouros

Kalypso Cretan Village Resort and Spa

One of our favorite places, and one we return to every time we come to Greece, is the small town of Plakias. It has become a bit more crowded over the past few years and prices are also continuing to rise. Unfortunately, we decided not to stay right in the town this visit. So, we… Continue reading Kalypso Cretan Village Resort and Spa

The Magnificent Mani

A number of years ago I wrote about the Mani Peninsula and how every Mani's home is ...well...his castle! And nothing has changed and it is still so and even more so. There is quite a bit of construction going on here on the Mani and I can understand why. It is one of the… Continue reading The Magnificent Mani

Apology to the GPS Lady

We found a new feature on Google Maps today that has made all the difference in how we view the GPS lady. We now have a much better understanding why she says the things she does. Her directions are not simply out of vindictiveness [for some of the names I have called her]. Or even,… Continue reading Apology to the GPS Lady
