Before you think I’ m that kind of backpacker, let me tell you a story. On a cold and rainy day of October, a young female traveler was walking down the beach looking for some warm food to fill her empty stomach. Falasarna was pretty much a ghost town at that period and the only […]
We’re all wondering what makes Crete this unforgettable memory… Here’s a short list but feel free to add more things as you read!
