    Chania

    September 13, 2019 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Today we are going to Chania, 2nd largest city in Crete, pronounced Hay-ni-a. We are going on the bus, we have clouds and a strong breeze this morning and as we wait for the bus it starts to rain but it doesn't last long, unlike the bus journey, 22km and it takes 1 1/2 hours, still by the time we arrive the sun is shining. We start off in the market and then head for the harbour, we are attempting to walk the harbour wall but as the sea is so rough we can't get to the end without getting soaked.Read more

    Chania, Crete, Greece

    August 1, 2019 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Late start today. Shipped docked at 12pm. Last night we did a quiz show after dinner with Elvis and Jeanne. We've done something with them the last couple of nights after dinner in the dining room. Last night it was a 70s music trivia. We did pretty good (thanks to Elvis), but didn't win.

    Scorcher today. Was mid 30s but felt like 40!

    We had a guided tour at 12.30pm for four hours starting with a drop off at the waterfront. Beautiful place. Old buildings, restaurants, sail boars, lighthouse and a stunning pier. We wandered for a bit then indulged in a beer (of course) and a seafood platter. At the end of the meal the waiter gave us a tiny carafe of "raki", a wine brandy. Wow, blew our heads off. Was more like vodka than brandy.

    Next stop was a lookout over Chania then off to a monastery of nuns. It was very quaint and small. But was a privilege to be allowed into their monastery. They gave us water and Loukoumi (Greek turkish delight). So nice.

    Overall, Chania is a bit of a sad little place with a lot of poverty and in need of a big clean up. But it's small and the pier area is amazing.

    Then it was back to the ship by 4.30pm. We chilled by the pool with a couple of cocktails. Quiet night. Dinner in the casual dining area then a movie in our room.

    Vormittags hängen wir am Hotel rum...es ist ziemlich windig. Dann brechen wir nach Chania auf.
    Flanieren...lädele....Abendessen bei (Fischbeiz)
    Wir essen zu dritt zwei Doraden weil sie grilliert sind und nicht frittiert wie die Fischplatte. Dazu gibt es Choriatiki, Humus und Tzatziki...Röbi ist typisch griechisches Fleisch mit Pfeffersosse ;-)Read more
