The Greek villages are as old as time itself, and the countryside is so awesome but the people are the real gems! Driving through a small Greek village is like being inside a sandwich where the buildings are at the road on each side of you and the road is just barely wide enough to… Continue reading Small Greek Villages
Even though we arrived late we were greeted with smiles and a wonderful welcome! This is the true identity of Greece and her people…hospitality at its finest.As we settled in to our seaside room we opened the patio doors to the beautiful expanse of water of the Thermatic Gulf. A beautiful setting for a glass… Continue reading Cabo Verde Hotel- The Boardwalk
We love frequenting fish tavernas! Mainly because they have fantastic fish! But the salads, the metzedies, the kebabs, and the souvlaki are also pretty darn delicious! We found the Aristea while driving along the beautiful seaside roads of Evia and had to go back for dinner that night (oh ok and the night after too!).… Continue reading Psarotaverna (Fish Taverna) Aristea

Tsoutsouros is a… Continue reading Tsoutsouros – Zorba’s & Triton Hotel
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.

So, we… Continue reading Kalypso Cretan Village Resort and Spa
