Wishing you and your families peaceful, calm and exciting Christmas days. Whatever you do on “normal” days, do something different! Meet your beloved ones. In person or virtually, but meet them! Don’t wait for better times. The best time is now.
Bacause of the lockdown situation, we decided to continue in the southern parts of Crete, away from cities. Most places down here are very, very quiet, even in summer season, but now we are mostly on our own.
Heading further east along the south coast of Crete, we found Xerokampos, a wide-spread village with several nice beaches, only very few hotels and now, in winter time, remarkably calm. Coming down the street from the mountians features spectacural views into the bay area.

As we were no sure how this may apply to our travelling, we rented a flat for two weeks in Keratokampos, a small village at…
Another ferry night and we arrived on Crete. The first week we spent on “Como Beach”, right in the South, where we found a nice place for our van, just in front of the sea, and enjoyed just relaxing on the beach, the local Tavernas, and wonderful sunsets.
