Hello my friends!
At last I have in my hands (or should I say in my pc…)
the pictures I took from my home town almost a month ago, when I was on family
Easter’s vacation. We were lucky since during that week in my beloved island
the weather was almost like Summer, really sunny and really hot!
My home town is not a big one, actually it can be
considered as a small one, but it is really beautiful with amazing beaches,
unique corners and natural beauty that will definitely be loved. Even though
Crete is a big island,  when you are in Agios Nikolaos you can truly
realize that you are in an island… every step drives you to the sea and the
blue color is all around. Sky ends where sea starts.

One thing that I love in my place is that you can also
visit other adorable places near the main town, like Elounda or Plaka. And
even though these two villages are really close to Agios Nikolas, they look
very different. In Elounda the sea is not deep, you can enjoy the  fresh
air full of the smells from the sea and have a drink just next to the beach.

On the other hand Plaka is a short trip to the past. Beautiful houses from stone with Cretan architecture and Spinalonga island just a mile away. If you close your eyes you can “hear” the voices of the people that leaved there….

I love my town, I love the people, my friends are
still there. People are simple, with great hospitality and a great sense of
humor. Have a cup of coffee with them or a raki and you will definitely feel
that you knew them since ever.
When the day ends… the colors are simple amazing! I love to sit and admire them, while I am dreaming and this is exactly the perfect way to think what this day brought and leave behind the problems. A beautiful night is coming and soon a new day.
One of the jokes here in Greece is about Cretans and
how much they love their island… I adore it, not just love it. I know that when
I am there I laugh, I enjoy life, I meet good friends, I smile without being
anxious and I relax by the sea. I live well… Ef Zin 🙂
