Living in Crete-Holiday Crete

Over The Living in Crete Rainbow...(Souda Bay)

Kalives Harbour with construction of the new church. The harbour is a very popular and cosy place with swimming/bathing people on the nice sandy beach.

Snow on the Mountains of Crete-view from the area close to Douliana. We are very fond of our walking tours from Kalives to Douliana and Almirida.

Micha the happy walking dog in her adventure. Micha did choose us very early as her walking friend and we can see/feel her happiness every time she joins us for a good walking trip.

Kalives Harbour with Panth tx 44. A good fishing and tour vessel. We already had a lot of good trips in the Souda Bay and along the coast to Georgioupolis

The navigator Randi well on board

Goat-march on the coast east of Almirida. Sometimes we
can see more than hundred goats marching along the coast, after licking salt in the small cliff holes

The captain on his boat in Kalives

A trip to Marathi Harbour on the north side of Souda Bay. A very popular harbour with good restaurants and nice living in Crete beaches

Chessplayers in the garden at Kritiko Restaurant

Vasu, her mother and Randi. Vasu is renting out nice houses-apartments and runs a  mini-market and cafe'. This is your place in Douliana if you are looking for a peaceful and quiet living in Crete holiday.

     Laboka cathing from Souda Bay with Joy. The fish is very lively and with a tremendous taste...

Sheep march on the coast of Souda Bay - and there are many of them...

A Country For All Seasons

In article/interview with the new Turism Minister Angela Gerekou she quotes:

"We will compete on our own turf by way of providing quality tourism..."

A Break With The Past
"We are currently in the stage of outlining our priorities for the country's new turist identity, which will be based on green development.
Among other things, this includes the establishment of a new legal framework for the streamlining of bureaucracy and promoting the use of alternative sources of energy."

Strong Evidence of Hydrocarbon Systems in Pelopones, Crete

PGS, the Norwegian company wich completed a series of seismic research in the Ionean Sea and the sea region south of Crete, said that although the data from seismic research were still under processing, there were strong evidence of hydrocarbon systems in western Pelopones as there were "various geological characteristics of the Greek underground and a variety of possible oil potential".
The Norwegian company said processing of seismic research data was expected to be completed in early 2014.
Under the plan, Greek athorities will launch a series of international tenders for the accession of certain regions to oil companies for hydrocarbon exploration.

We are the weakest wheel of the European Union. Today we are facing a remarkable financial war and our country holds the role of "David" in the Eurozone. We are disappointed as we realize that our politicians have actually sold their ideals, their country.
Greece, the cradle of civilization and democracy faces the most unfair system and lives in a society ruled by inappropriate people.

"Greece is on the brink of bankruptcy. But we are not a bankrupt nation.
  • We are Greeks
  • People with the power to imagine
  • People with the intelligence to turn imagination into reality
  • People do great things when they feel great about themselves
  • And nations do great things when they feel great about themselves
  • Let's not forget about the past, but let's not bask in it either
We need a future vision which ties the things that the world loves and admires about ancient Greece with things that the world will love about future Greece."
said Peter Economides, a brand strategist with global perspective.

We agree very much with his statement and look forward to Greeks (new leaders acting) doing something about it!

Exclusive Interview With Steve Vranakis

You retain strong ties with Greece. How does it feel to watch the crisis from the outside and through more objective eyes? What is wrong with this country after all?

Greece is at the heart of everything we do as a family. Our religion, food, traditions, language, everything revolves around being Greek.
My wife is also Greek and both my sons were born in Greece. It pains me to see the country going through such a difficult time, hence why I try to do what I can to help out. As I mentioned earlier, we need to tell the world a different story. One of youth brimming with ideas, enthusiasm and optimism. People who are very entrepreneurial and driven to start their own companies.

Do you believe that Greece could be very successful in the technological sector...may be a new Silicon Valley?

According to World Economic Forum data, Greece ranks 10th in the world in terms of available scientists and engineers. Recently I was corrected and told we now rank 5th. This is an incredible achievement for a small nation like ours. Reload Greece is an organization that tries to help and mentor startups that are launched primarily by Greeks but outside of Greece. They don't necessarily encourage them to return to Greece, but to tap into our highly skilled human capital like the engineers mentioned previously. They help start ups scale and promote their businesses abroad whilst helping them retain ties and tap into the tech infrastructure of Greece. A really, really good idea and a great example of Greek ingenuity.

Despite the fact that you were not born or raised in Greece and that you currently live abroad, you are still connected with your Greek side. You don,t forget Sfakia and Chania and of course the people of Crete. What is the feeling every time you return to Crete?

Crete as we know is a very unique part of Greece. The living in Crete people are extremely proud and respectful of each other and the eart that provides them with the substinance. I am extremely proud to be Greek and incredibly honored to be from Crete. I have a small stone house in the old town of Chania that,s hundreds of years old that we spend a few months a year in and we also come back for Easter and Christmas along with the summer holidays. Every time I,m in Crete I really feel at home. I feel like I returned to where I come from. I try to use a lot of the values and principles passed down from generations to help guide my thinking and decisions even today.
