Blue Skies and Warm Nights
Our fondest memories of our cruise on "OCEAN VILLAGE" are probably,dining on the open deck in the warm evening air and watching the sunsets every evening.
Seeing some of the sea life such as a Loggerhead turtle as we sailed out of Katakolon, giant jellyfish and Dolphins! what a treat! not forgetting the Pelicans at Mykonos
just walk around a mountain...
just walk around a mountain village is a very nice experience, we were offerd milke and grapes to taste and had a nice talk in English of cource. Only an English conversation is possible with the younger once.
Fast food to remain tuned with your life back home! Goody's is the greek reply to the Mac Donald's and it is very successful throughout Greece. You don't need my recommendations. You probably know what you like here and what not.
The Palace of Knossos
The largest and most spectacular of all the Minoan palatial centres. Established in 1700 B.C.:, it has four wings arranged around a rectangular, central court, oriented N-S, which is actually the nucleus of the whole complex.
The Palace is also connected with thrilling legends, such as the myth of the Labyrinth with the Minotaur, and the story of Daidalos and Icaros.
"Do you know what NOSTALGIA means in Greek?"
Nostos means the desire to return home
Algos means pain
Now, nostalgia means the pain we feel by the desire to return to the home place, when we are away...

"Let's discover and rediscover it together!"
In August 2006, I came to Heraklion to stay for 10 days, visit my parents and have some rest. Well, Heraklion is the only place on earth, where I can really rest and recharge my batteries.
After all, there is nothing left to be discovered, everything is well known.
So in these 10 days of my stay, I had not really things to do, unless going everyday to the beach…. Ohhh No thanx, not for me! I was never a sunshine beach fan!
So what else to do? Hmmm, that's the idea!
I will take my camera, a note book and a pen and I will go out to collect information for my VT Heraklion page. And yes I did it! It was really fun to go around to places I knew, to take photos of everything and keep notes of the taxi fares and restaurants menus!
It was funny and I enjoyed it !
I hope you will enjoy it too!
Please follow me to Heraklion, my home!
