Thanks for your help
Ride to the mountain ranges. There, many Villages have kept a traditional style and way of life. It's also where you will have the chance to eat the tastiest food at low prices (ask for the phenomenal "antikristo" lamb), drink homemade raki (also called "tsikoudia", it's the same), and experience the friendliness and hospitality of cretan people at its best.
Be warned though, they might want to keep you there for ever!

For a more typical touristic aproach, you might want to visti the Monastery of Arkadi (link) and see the chamber of hundreds of skulls that are well preserved until today, relics of the greek revolt against the turks in 18th-19th century.

Also, the village of Argyroupoli, situated a few kilometers east of rethymnon is a very nice day trip, where you can spent some relaxing time in a tavern under cold water springs. (link pics)

A nice little village called Chromonastiri, just 10 minutes to the south of Rethimnon offers relaxed walks in its narrow alleys. There is also a small war museum there.

A nice ride is through the "faragi" (=gorge, canyon) of Kotsifou (pics ), that will take you to the south of the island. Then head to Fragkokastelo (pics) and enjoy the views and have a swim at the beach.

Choices are really endless, and the above mentioned are just a small sample. If you extend your visits to the east (iraklion) or the west (chania) there even more great places to go to.

I'm at Iraklion, if you make it there we might arange a beer or two (unfortunately I work all day long, 7 days a week and my time is limited, but I will try to find some free time)

Μέρα...

Ετοιμάζεται κανείς άλλος για έξω φέτος; Εγώ πάλι μια Βαλκάνια θα πάω, να ξεσκάσει λίγο το κεφάλι μου γιατί εδώ θα τρελαθούμε όλοι όπως πάει...

Και εγώ στην ίδια φάση είμαι.. Αρχές Σεπτέμβρη λέω να πάρω τους δρόμους, να πάω μια βόλτα μέχρι δολομίτες που έχω κάτι χρωστούμενα απο παλιά και μετά όπου με βγάλει, απο Αυστρία μέχρι ίσως και Νορμανδία

Παιδιά χάθηκε ένας ακόμα δικός μας άδικα στο δρόμο..

Ο Άγγελος Παντελίδης, Brodovich εδώ μέσα, έφυγε μετά από τροχαίο, μια ηλικιωμένη έκανε αναστροφή και έπεσε πάνω της με τη μηχανή.. Προσοχή στους δρόμους και πάντα όρθιοι να είμαστε.

Άγγελε καλό ταξίδι και ελαφρύ το χώμα που θα σε σκεπάζει...
