My trip to Crete

So… Yes! I went alone to Crete! I admit it! And .it was the best decision I have ever made

So it all started a few weeks ago, I decided that I must to go on a vacation. The everyday life stress and pressure just overflowed in every aspect of my life. And I am sure that unfortunately,  you are familiar with that also! If not, you’re a lucky cookie. But as far as I know, in the 21st century, everybody experience stress and pressure, and sometimes a glass of wine does not help anymore.(i don’t drink, just an expression)

So that was my case , meditation didn’t help, breathing exercises didn’t help. So I realised that i need to get out of my box (life) and see the world a little bit. I didn’t want to go too far, and I didn’t wanted something super exotic, I just wanted to clear my head and soul, and the best place to do it ,in my opinion, is Greece.

Greece isn’t far away from Israel (my country) so i flew for like an hour an a half. It was the best time  to fly, because it wasn’t a traveling season ,so it wasn’t crowded and terrible. I packed my suitcase and got on the plane.

Now. Of course I was terrified to fly alone, it was my first travel all by myself, but I decided that my fear and my imagination,and questions of what could have happened, would make me miss a lot of things in life, and luckily i was right. Besides, Greece is a very wonderful and friendly country, and there was nothing to fear.

 

So we got off the plane…sorry…I got off the plane. The flight was wonderful, no crying babies . And i stepped into the airport of Heraklion, In Crete. Crete is divided into regions and one of them is Heraklion, the capital region and city.

Afrewards they immediately transferred me to my hotel. My hotel was located in the most beautiful coastal town Agia Pelagia, the most beautiful place with beaches and views like i’ve never seen before.

I met new people, and made some new friends on the first day. It is part of the fun, meeting and become in touch with people.

I had an organized trip to the Spinalonga Island which called officially Kalydon these days. This Island has a very painful and terrifying history, this island was used as a leper colony in the 19th century. People were ripped from their families and sent to live on their own in this leper colony,the ones who were trying to swim back to the shores of Alonda, was immediately shot and killed. But this colony has an important part in the history of curing the leper disease. Back in 1920’s Alexander Fleming discovered the penicillin, but only a decade after, medicine started to show interest in his discovery. one of the first  attempts to experiment the  penicillin as a cure to leper disease was a the huge experiment on the Spinalonga Island, many had been saved during this experiment. This island is one of the main causes of the fact that this disease is almost distinct.

OK… next time I’ll share with you some more photos, but this time of some stuff that i bought in Crete and it’s beautiful shopping centers.

to be continued…:)

  15. First of all I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not
    mind. I was interested to find out how you
    center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Appreciate it!

    1. Well first of all a big, Huge thank you for your comment! I am truly flattered!
      About your question, when i write about something, it’s like i’m writing a letter to a close friend.
      A close friend that will never judge me and will kindly read my letter.
      When you don’t know how to start, imagine that this friend is asking you “Can you please tell me everything about it?”
      and the first sentence that pops up in you mind that is your opening line!
      It’s maybe little childish but it does work, i dare you to try it at least ones :).
      Hoping to read some of your work!
      Good luck, hope to see you in my blog again for more posts!

  16. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

  17. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I truly appreciate your efforts and
    I will be waiting for your further write ups thanks
