Presently in Crete and wondering if we should pass by the Omalos Plateau if we are NOT going to walk the Samaria Gorge. Are there other nice walks to do with three children up there? To give you an idea, we walked the Imbros Gorge (8km) and we think that was their limit.
We have a camper so we are free to drive around and even drive East if there are other nice walks to do with children. Good climbers, two 9 year old twins and one 4 year old.
Thank you for any suggestions.
We are presently…
A year after our wedding, my husband and I are finally going to Greece on our honeymoon! We booked our flights to Athens from Sep 3 - Sep 18, and are now deciding on which islands to visit.
I'm reading the Rough Guide to the Greek Islands as well as articles and forums, and while I'm now more informed, I am also more undecided. My husband and I love history and beaches. I also love photography. Based on this, here is my first stab at an itinerary.

We are interested in booking three round trip tickets on the rail from Diakofto to Kalavryta in August 2016. Our plan is to drive from Delphi and take the train from Diakofto to Kalavryta and back and then drive to Nafplio. My questions are 1)Is there enough time in one day for the journey? 2)Can we pre-book the tickets? I was not able to do a web booking--wondering if there's another option. We have a pretty tight itinerary, so don't want to be caught without tickets and be disappointed.. 3)Are…

Hi, everyone! My trip to Karpathos is only a couple months away now and I cannot wait! For those of you who have been to Karpathos, or are familiar with the island, I am wondering if you'd like to comment on my loosely planned itinerary below. I am a beach bum, so half or more of the days are dedicated to the beach, so bearing this in mind, what do you think? Is there anything major I am missing out on? Any suggestions for my "free day" on the final day of the trip? I will have a car for all the…

We have booked ferry tickets for mid September from Paros to Piraeus.
Can anyone tell us if the ferries normally run on time? We have flights to Sofia that leave Athens International at 6pm on a Sunday and wondering do we risk it and go on the ferry the same day ( to have an extra day at Paros) or change tickets and go the day before so we definitely make the flight ( no stress). There are 6 of us travelling. 3 who like to live on the edge and 3 who like to play it safe. Any advice on ferry…
