The Author

My first stay to Crete in 1965 was followed by reiterations, finally resulting in an "acute island fever", also known as "virus creticus".

So I migrated to the island in 1984. There is however no recovery in sight.

photo During various excursions on the island I improved my knowledge about the local plant life, fauna, and the geology. Shepherds and village people are among my best friends and informants.

For more than half of my 24 years stay to the largest Greek island I have been busy guiding walks, trekking tours and bus excursions, and on the side picked up more than 100,000 kms with my enduro.

Knowledge of the Greek language, especially of the Cretan dialect, has opened many doors to the Cretan people and helped me to understand their habits and traditions as well as their cultural peculiarities.

It will be my pleasure to share this knowledge about Crete and it's people with you.
