The olive's harvesting season isn't over yet and although we have finished with the production of our own olive oil, we are still working on the fields! The past few days we are helping some friends to harvest their trees. So we have moved to their house, in a village that is located about an hour a
Last Sunday I come across the #showcasesunday tag, an idea of @nonameslefttouse meant to revive old posts adding a new prospect. An idea that I found very appealing, so after last week's Portraits Flashback I am continuing with My travel to Parga.
I wrote the original post on the second month of my
Actually it is Sitia, the smaller of the three towns of the county of Lashithi, on the east side of Crete, the Greek island that I call home for the last six years. I can't believe that I am blogging for almost two years and I haven't shared not even a single shot from this lovely place. But this is
It is the day that I wait with anticipation every year since I quit the urban lifestyle and began a new "career" as a farmer!
It is the day that a whole year's work and care bears fruit (figurative and literally).
It is the day that I finally tasted the fresh olive oil of the season :)

Traveling around Greece I have seen many places. Well advertised resorts and hidden gems, overcrowded as well as isolated destinations, all kind of scenery, by the sea, by the mountain, by the lake and of course every kind of settlements, from little villages to towns and cities. No matter what I wa
I am about to reveal a huge conspiracy that is going on for decades and bedevils millions of vacationers! It is about time that someone finally take the stand and speak the whole shocking truth!

As I promised in my previous post I have for you a bunch of shots of a long walk through two of the most interesting (although in different ways) neighborhoods of Athens!
In case you you don't know it, Athens is the capital of Greece and was my home for more than 40 years, before I move to the islan
One of the most fun things on the steem universe are the contests. And most of all I enjoy the photography related ones!
@derangedvisions on the other hand is a master on creating original and creative challenges but this time he really surpassed himself!
His new contest's theme is Tell Me About Whe
As I told you a couple of days ago I got a new camera and after the First touch! I thought to take a walk around my new village for some further testing. Anywise I have moved here since June and I still haven't written a post to show you around! So that's the perfect occasion!

I have written in the past about Greek country fairs and the importance they have for the cultural and social life of the villages. You can read my post about the fair of Lastros, the village I was living in till a couple of months ago, here.
But now I am living in a new village and I have for you t
I have mentioned before that I have a summer job as a host for vacation homes here, at the north east part of Crete, in Greece. And usually I am the one to take pictures for the listings. Do not imagine any high-end Real Estate photography like @scottshots but every now and then I come across a hous
I went to my favorite gorge today to get some new shots of the waterfall! This winter we had a good share of rain and I was expecting to see a more impressive spectacle than usual.
And I was right :)
I would like to remind you that I live on eastern Crete, a very dry place that is suffering from dr
