The view


The above photo is taken by my man and is actually, as it says, the view from my Paradissi. I have never mentioned it before, but the name of my blog is after a really hearted place of mine called Paradissi. It is located in southern Crete, right outside my village (a small village on the mountains called Melampes) and it's a very beautiful and powerful spot on earth (I am not objective, I love my roots a little too much..) This mountain in the photo is called Kedros and during wintertime the clouds run over it like a huge, eternal wave creating the most amazing view.
There, I said it. Hope you can visit our land someday, it is most definitely worth it!

  5. Thank you for sharing your beautiful view. I often wondered about your "Paradissi". I loved Crete when I was there many years ago. Someday I hope to go back.

  18. Είμαι πολύ ενθουσιασμένη! Φέτος, πριν κάνα μήνα δηλαδή πέρασα από Μελαμπες!! Λατρεύω την Κρήτη, κι αν και δεν είμαι από εδώ, έχω δεθεί απόλυτα με το μέρος τα τελευταία 4 χρόνια που μένω στα Χανιά! Καταλαβαίνω πλήρως γιατί επέλεξες να γυρίσεις πίσω. Και να φανταστείς είμαι από Αθήνα! Όσο αφορά το μικρό σου παράδεισο, τον διαδικτυακό τουλάχιστον, είμαι πολύ μεγάλη φαν! Ταυτίζομαι σε μεγάλο βαθμό κιόλας, γιατί κι εγώ είμαι στα πρώτα αρχιτεκτονικά αλλά και "μπλογκικά" μου βήματα! χαμόγελο από Χανιά!!
