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
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
