CRETAN JOURNEY 02

Kedrodasos has been the paradise of my summer. And I keep realizing this as I look back to these photos of our adventure. Fall is already here and whenever I feel emotional or frustrated I bring these pictures in my head and I'm smiling again! On this particular day we woke up early, as everyday, had a swim, ate our fruits and relaxed till noon. Around 7 pm we got our backpacks, put sunscreen on, I got my camera and we left our tends. Our destination was Elafonisi, not very far from Kedrodasos, but the hiking was inevitable. We arrived quite late because we stopped to get foods and water for when we go back. It was about 8.30 pm and the whole beach was almost empty, exactly like we wanted it to be. We caught the sunset just in time and enjoyed a pretty freezy swim in Elafonisi. The pink sand and sunset light was pretty-to-cry-for.




CRETAN JOURNEY 01

For quite a while now I have been working in Argyroupoli village in Crete. In August, Nika, Ioanna and Manos traveled to Crete and kidnapped me to make a trip to Kedrodasos, South Chania. That was a great excuse for me to experiment with my new digital camera and make a few posts up in here. The first part is about Argyroupoli village, our walk at the springs, amongst Platanus trees and the lake. Ofcourse before leaving the village we had to get food from the local bakery. Many of the pictures were taken while the car was moving, but I have to share the views anyway. We went through a lot of mountains and villages, lost our way, stopped at the supermarket, stopped to get coffee. Ioanna insisted to steal some grapes from a yard of a house that looked somewhat abandoned so we stopped there as well. Finally we made it to Kedrodasos. We fixed our tends just before the sunset and in the morning, we had some visitors at the beach, two cute little goats which I ran off my tend to capture. It was a great beginning at the most beautiful, peaceful and dreamy beach of the world.
