Three days full of walks, food and raki. What else could one want?
And all the while I kept wishing that this weekend would never end.
The Palaiokastro's analog, ancient computer which calculated the solar and lunar eclipses. Found in 1898.
In the FOOD category, it won’t be just images.
Plus, you get to leave the place a changed man; an educated man; a knowledgeable man; a happy man.
If you get lucky, you may even run across the monastery’s keeper, who will tell you all about its history, will show you around the Museum with the ancient engravings, and will analyze all the icons, one by one. You won’t be leaving with any unanswered questions, that’s for sure!
And when you are done with the bites and the raki shots, walk up to enjoy the view and gaze far at the ocean, like a Saracen pirate!
Maybe I shouldn't be revealing this hidden gem of Sitia, but I couldn't keep myself from telling you about this spectacular beach. The Itanos or Erimoupoli beach is located very close to the Palm Forest of Vai and it's really worth a visit.
Even during autumn, the view is still amazing!
Two more unique experiences deserve special mention, and they will follow in separate posts. The one is the distilling of raki at the ruins of the ancient city of Presos, and the other is hiking on the Richtis Gorge trail.
So stay tuned…
