Let me show you the best of Crete

I’m Gabi, a translator & journalist with a passion for Greece. After years traveling to Crete every summer, I decided that this was the place to be. I packed everything and I found a home in northwest Crete.

Now I travel to discover remote villages, stunning beaches, and the most beautiful corners of Crete. As I document my road trips on the island, I share my thoughts, photos, and experiences and I hope to inspire you to start your own journey around Crete! Read more!
