When people ask me about my most memorable holiday experience so far, it’s always tough for me to pinpoint my absolute best. This is because they are mostly all great for a variety of reasons and at different levels. Some moments that I have experienced while travelling ended up completely blowing me away in way that I never expected. Years later, I still smile at the fond memories. (more…)
The Palace of Knossos is located 5 km southeast of the city of Heraklion, on the Kephala Hill. In fact, it is the largest Bronze Age archaeological site in Crete.
How Our Adventure Began
Every traveler has their own share of mishaps and funny stories during their travel adventures. Consequently, we try to learn from each one of them and also hope that they will never happen again. One of those unexpected scenarios, happened to us at the entrance of the Palace of Knossos.
Unluckily, when we arrived here around 9 a.m, the queue to get in was horrendous.
It was unfortunate that we couldn’t buy tickets online. This is because the tickets are only available at the ticket office located at the entrance of the Palace of Knossos.
After queuing for some time, we finally bought the combined tickets to the Palace of Knossos and the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion.
On a positive note, contrary to the majority of museums, the Greek museums don’t charge the minors.
Certainly, the Island of Rhodes is celebrated for its natural beauty and delightful climate. No wonder, it is a major tourist attraction for the seekers of sunny beaches.
Without a doubt, whether you arrive in this island in search of buzzing nightlife, or sun, or diving in crystal clear waters; The Island of Rhodes has it all!
Back to our adventures, we decided to go for a road trip around the island after having had quite a number of excursions. This brought us to magnificent beaches, impressive sightseeing (more…)
For a well balanced and a healthy life, vacations are a necessity. The following are some of the reasons why:
- We emerge from a vacation feeling ready to take on the world again
- We gain a new perspective
- Get to relax with our families and friends,
- We get a break from our usual routines
Therefore, it’s important to make yourself a priority and take some time off.
Indeed, everyone or every family has their own unique holiday routines. For my husband and I, we love going on a vacation to a sunny destination for the great warm weather during the Summer holidays. I love the tan that I get on my skin from these sunny destinations. The memories always last after the tan is faded.
Our prefered holiday destination this Summer was the Island of Rhodes in Greece. (more…)
Don’t you love holidays? I think that everybody does. Personally, I love holidays because I think that it’s the perfect time to reflect and meditate, which of course leads to making our lives better and those around us.
Why You Should Consider A Holiday In Greece?
Greece has typical Mediterranean climate with mild and rainy winters, relatively warm and dry summers. Probaby, that’s why it is a perfect vacation destination for the Summer holidays. Having this in mind, this was the main reason why we chose the Island of Rhodes.
This Island has the combination of the nice weather, beaches, archaeological sites and extensive medieval town.
The Island Of Rhodes Experience
When we arrived in the Island of Rhodes, it was incredibly warm, contrary to the weather we had left in Belgium. It was like a time to roll and a secret escape kind of holiday. It was also my first time in Greece and I could not wait to explore the Island and to learn more about the Greek culture.
From my previous travel blogs, I think that it’s evident that we love excursions. Thanks to my husband, he is multilingual and good in reading the maps.
After a day of enjoying the sun at the beach, we had a perfect excursion plan; A day in the city of Lindos. (more…)
With over 50,000 animals from across the world, there can never be a shortage of incredible things to see in an Aquarium. My husband and I, we are fans of aquariums of any kind and size. This is the reason why we chose to go to Cretaquarium. It is rather small but again it emphasizes on Mediterranean sea life. A must see if you want to have an idea of the Mediterranean sea life.
It is well maintained and well laid out. There is also sufficient information available in several languages. The tanks allow great visibility and you can take quite some time just watching the fish cruise around. From some experiences, taking a closer look has its rewards; you might see something you’ve never noticed before or learn something new about one of your favorite marine animals, or discover an entirely new creature that you’ve never seen before. For example mussels growing on ropes was all new to me and I got to learn about it. Thanks to Cretaquarium! (more…)
The island of Crete is adorned with fantastic and exotic beaches. We drove from Chania to Lassithi , where we came across so many beaches with white sand, turquoise water, sand dunes and unique coastal ecosystems. I think that the numerous beaches lining on the shore, attract the travelers to Crete. Whether you’re into water sports, snorkeling or sunbathing, the island certainly has a stretch of beach to suit your taste.
I was born and brought up in the mainland. This could be the reason maybe why anything to do with the seas and oceans always excites me. Still on our trip to Greece, this was on our things to do list; cruising on a motor yacht from Rhodes to Symi. We hopped from one Island to another. This was so much fun!
We cruised in the middle of Aegean Sea which is an arm of the Mediterranean Sea. The boat drifted slowly through the water, riding gently upon the waves that rose and fell with cosmic regularity. The clouds marched across the sky with the perpetual breeze. The sea itself was an indescribable shade of deep blue that exists only in the deep waters far offshore. (more…)
