About the Travel Blog(ger)


Kalimera or «Grüezi», how we use to say in Switzerland.


You are about to enter the travel blog of a freelance journalist, historian and a long term traveller to Crete, considering Crete not «just» to be his preferred destination for holidays but his purpose of life, his home.

Kalimera Kriti isn't very romantic though. You won 't find nicely packed words and pretty flowers of speech, enthusing about authenticity or paradise on earth here. This travel blog would like to entertain you with exciting travel stories, without losing grip. Serving as a useful travel guide, Kalimera Kriti prepares you to your next holidays in Crete and provides you with selected news from the Island.

Because Crete is idyllic mountainvillage- and smalltown-romance as well as masstourism and -drinking in Chersonissons or Malia.Crete is Raki (schnapps) and Cretan Mountain Tea. Crete is souvlaki spits and gyros that look even worse on pictures in front of a rather moderate taverna than being served. Crete is Giouvetsi (veal meal), Antikristo (grilled lamb) and Boubouristi (snails). But Crete is vegan stew with chickpeas and soymilk too. And sometimes it is even a tropic-fruity healthy superfood smoothie with a little nut-nougat creme.
