Together with Portugal, Greece it must be the country I visited the most in the south of Europe.
But I never went to Crete. Maybe because I always thought it was a bit “grown up”. My mother went here with her friends in the 70′s – and she still talks about it.
But I guess even I grow up. And now I am here.
Crete is known for its food. It is incredibly healthy (Crete men live an average 82,6 years – which beats the Japane men with an average of 79!). With the economic crisis Crete has been fast on picking up its old traditions and organic farms as well as hotels and restaurants are growing fields of business.
There is no internet what so ever here at Ligres Beach. The area is stunning here in the south of Crete. But unfortunetly the food leaves a lot to wish for. And that comes from someone that would have been completely happy with a simple grilled fish and a greek salad.
