Believe it or not, it’s not on a tropical island but it’s in Crete.   Crete island is the biggest island of Greece and located at the southern part of Greece but also the southern part of Europe.  This is Vai beach the famous palmtree forest beach at the eastern part of the island at the Lasithi prefecture, closer to Sitia and Agios Nikolaos.  http://lomozakis.tumblr.com/post/21598037494/believe-it-or-not-its-not-on-a-tropical-island

Ready to live the myth No2.  Hippies reunion is on again. Matala, Crete, Greece  Matala was then a fishing village. In the 1960s the caves were occupied by hippies who were later driven out by the church and the military junta. Now Matala is a small village living mainly from tourism.  -Wikipedia     http://lomozakis.tumblr.com/post/23116598652/matala

Visiting Arnhem, the Netherlands was a surprisingly nice experience for me. I had the chance to meet new friends, to experience a picturous city and have fun.  Tip. Do not miss the nightlife of Arnhem, it will surprise you positively.    http://lomozakis.tumblr.com/post/32800266573/arnhem

One Expo is not enough to include the beauty of Vai beach.  Located in front of a palm tree forest is a unique beach of Crete island in Greece. Specially during April when the mass of tourists are still away it looks totally amazing.  Tip: Don’t try it in July-August, just pay a visit for some photos.  http://lomozakis.tumblr.com/post/21599706833/one-expo-is-not-enough-to-include-the-beauty-of

My first bicycle ride.    It was fun riding a bike without gears, and backwards break system. I felt like driving a bicycle from another century. Thus it’s perfect for the Netherlands cause there in no “uphill” direction.    I actually missed biking around so it seems it will be fun hanging out with the number 43 bicycle.

Sometimes I think that the captain makes it by purpose to park the ferry in Venice port just entering through the whole city.  It’s obvious that there is another easier way to approach the terminal of the Port of Venice and don’t go through the city.  I just needed these few moments to forget the 32h on board from  Patras (Greece) to Venice (Italy) with this, let’s say, ship.    http://lomozakis.tumblr.com/post/30482787858/venice

Ow yes… In Greece they claim Snails as one of the best “Meze” (tapas).   Try it… and then criticise please.. ;-)    http://lomozakis.tumblr.com/post/23115939220/snails

There is another hidden treasure in the center of Athens (near Psiri area - Ψυρρή), were you can eat some delicious pork steaks.   Many years back Telis (Τέλης) became a traditional secret place to eat pork steaks. If you go there you just don’t need to order. You just need to pick which one of the two available salads you want and what you want to drink. All the rest are pointless since you will eat the small pork steaks (brizolakia - μπρ…

They used to refer to them as Kodak moments. How can I call this moment through my Lomo lenses? Lomo moment?  Playing backgammon under the palm trees in Vai beach is totally a unique feeling I guess. Backgammon with 3 different type of games is totally into the Greek culture, but watching a couple playing under a palm tree and hearing the sound of the dices while strolling around the pal...  http://lomozakis.tumblr.com/post/21601079703/they-used-to-refer-to-them-as-kodak-moments-how

On board again.   What a nice feeling entering a cabin after so much time and sharing it with a person you used to sail the oceans together.  The simulation is absolute since due to weather conditions I have to stay on board for at least 7h from the designated departure time.  But still! I’m not complaining at all… Since “I’m on board again…”  http://lomozakis.tumblr.com/post/21349289506/on-board-again-what-a-nice-feeling-entering-a

Sunglasses? No thank you.  Summer vanished faster than I left from Italy with my GPS not working. But this is another story about the GPS.  It feels like the summer couldn’t manage to get visa and cross the borders between Italy and Switzerland.  And now waiting in a 3km queue for 2:30’ just to cross the 17km tunnel and leave Alps behind you.  Ready for the lakes???    http://lomozakis.tumblr.com/post/30544125187/queue

Being back to Izmir, Turkey, having the change to be around my photo-freak friends from all around the world, I wasn’t even motivated to take a single picture there.   I know that during the upcoming days the effect of taking so many photos during this limited time of 4 days in the Intenational SWY mini reunion of Izmir will be visible all over my social media.  Thus I ‘m sharing just a single moment while my friends are trying... >>read more…
