I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socialising, good books and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and , there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world.But I never lost my love of Crete for a minute. And four years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
