I am currently enjoying a long winter working holiday in Crete. While I am here on the island I want to see as much as possible. Having spent 6 lovely weeks in the East of the island around Agios Nikoloas, I moved West to Kalyves last week where I will be spending a month before returning home to my base in Corfu. I was lucky enough to meet up with Enda McMullen, the tour guide for Hidden Crete. With my little dog, we walked for hours among the majestic beauty that is this part of Crete, the Apokoronas Municipality, through the fertile Limni region just outside Armenoi backed by the beauty of the snow capped mountains.

Enda stopped many times to point out interesting flora and fauna, and to impart fascinating tales of some of the history and developments in the area, and explain some of the things we saw along the way, like this old water well that would have been run on donkey power, and used to irrigate the fields.

Without him I would have probably never walked these paths anyway, and most definitely would have simply walked past this old building, which turned out to be a partially restored old water mill with the stone olive press outside.

I can’t wait for our next adventure - and to meet more of Hidden Crete's friends ...
