Kastellos Village – Postcards from a Cretan Mountain Hideaway

Sometimes it just so happens that the unexpected happens. Something you couldn't have planned for because well... you don't know what you don't know. It's like surfing the internet. One site takes you to the next and the cycle continues until you land somewhere you'd never even heard of. And sometimes, that just happens to be in the middle of nowhere. I'm not

Still in Chania for one more week, I hope to get a few more posts out about our time here. I have been moved in ways I didn't think possible by what I thought was merely a summer destination beach town.

We hadn't planned on taking a summer vacation this year and in fact, we normally don't. Closed for vacation - chiuso per ferie, the city tends to empty out in August as do many places in Italy. It's the perfect time to wander the city, see the sights, enjoy the bagni di Napoli - Naples bathing beaches, and catch up on some work. And, for the last few years there's
