Yiasou guys, great website. I have been walking and snorkelling in south Crete over the last 25 years. I live in Italy now and we are about to take the plane for our next Kriti adventure. Thanks for the best website on Kriti.


Today is Life...Kriti for Life

Wow, we just flew back in to Venice today from south Crete. It was beautiful in Crete with no meltemi wind. We spent time in Tripiti near Lendas and all the beaches and coast to Preveli with many nice photos. We had great times with the Cretan people and spent a lot of time under water. There are many fish in this part of Crete this year. More fish than previous years, which is great. Here are some photos from previous trips. I do free diving and coastal swimming...no air tanks/scuba. Kalo Kalokeri!

The photos are Kommos Beach (sunset behind cloud) Vathi (blue circle bay). I'm happy to share my photos of south Crete. These photos are from the other years. I'm downloading this year's photos now. You can put them all on the internet. Put them all. I'm happy to help you guys as you are doing great work and are helping Crete and the tourists by having a website with correct info.

There is so much more to Crete - Nikos Kazantzakis was right. I try to show my feelings for Crete inside me by my photos. I have many photos like this. Here are more for you to have and feel free to use. Check out these. It's time for people to see them. Ta leme.

I've started looking at the underwater photos and took this one when I went from Matala to Red Beach. They are White Trevally (Kokali in Greek I think). Feel free to put it on your site if you like.

This area is wonderful and the people of Agia Roumeli are great. The magic is to do Samaria Gorge and stay a few days there. Another tip I can give is to stay in Roumeli and do Samaria Canyon in the opposite direction. Enter the end of the canyon at 7.00am and walk up for 1.5 to 2 hours. Bring a sandwich and some fruit and enjoy the silence and nature. Turn round and back to the village for a frappe. The perfect morning!

Stay cool, stay wild!
