Agios Nikolaos is one of the major cities of Crete. It is located 80 km-s west from the airport Heraklion. It isn't so touristy like Hersonissos. There are some nice buildings, a lake in the middle of the town, and a sandy strand. It is... Read more » 

Daytrip to Argos - Argos reviews
I had a very nice ride from Nafplion to Argos. I passionately love motorbikes, so I actually rented one to discover the area wth it. I didn't regret. When you see the pure, real side of Greece and not the crowded touristy one, you just fall... Read more »

Athens - first impression, gallery by WazlingAthens - first impression - Athens reviews

Heracleion was a great disappointment - Herakleion reviews
The big capital city, touristically overcrowded and offering mostly the typical tourist shops, selling all the rubish you know from other cities. If you go on the outskirts, its often not very clean and doesnt offer very good places to go... Read more »

About the myth of Knossos, gallery by stefAbout the myth of Knossos - Heraklion reviews

Beach brake at Kaiafa, gallery by WazlingBeach brake at Kaiafa - Kaiafa reviews
Nice pause during our trip. The place was made up of only of 3 houses, a small railwaystation with a little restaurant, I guess you could call it this way, and a little aunties shop. It's a longer time ago, when I was there, but the... Read more »
