Websites to help my Crete “home” sickness

When I am feeling blue about being away from Crete I have a few ways to make myself feel better.

  1. I look up flights, hotels, car hire and basically “plan” my next trip even if I don’t know if I can get holiday from work or afford it!
  2. I will look up the photos I have taken in the past.  Unfortunately there are not many of these as I tend to want to enjoy the moment rather than photograph it and also I am a terrible photographer!
  3. I will go to the groups I belong to on Facebook as there are usually good pictures and stores that remind me of Crete.
  4. I will write here as it helps me focus and sometimes it takes my mind off my blues.
  5. I also know of many websites with pictures,tips, local information about Crete.

One of my favourites and one of the reasons for writing here tonight is west-crete.com.  It has a “photo of the day” and a large archive of beautiful photos that I can return to as often a I want and I use them to return to Crete for a little while, if only in my mind.  I am extremely jealous of the owner of the site as he lives in Crete, is a good photographer and knows Crete in a way I probably never will.  I will find my own Crete and will know it well but it will be a different Crete to his.

Must go, I have pictures to look at!
