Hi Coco, You are likely to find locally organised excursions though travel agents / tourist offices when you are here, for example you can go to Elounda and take the boat to Spinalonga. For Cretan cooking you can look at http://www.cookingincrete.com Someone else here on the board may know of activi...

Eipame... you can't now in the signature. If you add them in a line you may well get censored :evil: . There is always the question of how much is too much, and I'll step in if need be.

OK Jean you have a point - that is if everyone added 3 or more URL's the board would be soon be full of 'noise'.

So new rule number 1 - just one URL in signatures please. I've re-done the board settings so new posts shouldn't allow long signatures.

Then she'd have no problem with walking up to the refuge I think! Besides, if you walk it it's fine - plenty of space to keep away from the edges.

By the way Margarita - there are 'grounded' indoor toilets too up there. The outdoor one was built for the wow factor I believe!

Funny you should ask about the drive Margarita as I've just been updating a blog about it... the memories came flooding back. It's a stony track, well worn away by melting snow water, and is only a car width in places with steep drops. It can only be attempted in a 4 x 4, or on foot of course. 4.5km...

Clean Monday Volta

On Clean Monday we drove up to Omalos. The tavernas were all packed and there were plenty of families out on the plain flying their kites. We decided to go up to the Kallergi refuge (at 1,680m) in search of snow. Here's a picture taken on the road up to the refuge http://www.livingincrete.net/mount9...
